Oromocto + Bigpants = S H o O o O U T

This is a lo-fi-proto-punk-comedy souvenir single. Secretly recorded on a phone in Paris on June 5th, 2015 while Oromocto Diamond was on their Opo Europe Tour. It’s live, raw, energetic and funny. The first track is SHOUT by BIGPANTS featuring OROMOCTO DIAMOND as a powerful backing band. It was recorded with a stroboscope on during sound check at the Pop In. It’s 12 hypnotizing minutes of improv. The second track is OROMOCTO DIAMOND practicing O O O O with BIGPANTS in his apartment. That is, until the neighbours come knocking and interrupt the music. Then plans are made for the afternoon before the nightly show. These 20 minutes of glo-fi wonder come with a digital booklet full of tour photos.

Voici un étrange single souvenir lo-fi-proto-punk-comédie. Subtilement enregistré sur un téléphone, à Paris, le 5 juin 2015. Pendant la tournée Opo Europe d’Oromocto Diamond. C’est vrai, électrique et Frou-Frou. Le premier morceau c’est SHOUT, de BIGPANTS, accompagné d’OROMOCTO DIAMOND comme backing band. Douze minutes hypnotisantes d’improvisation Krautrock enregistrée pendant le soundcheck au Pop In. La suite, c’est OROMOCTO DIAMOND qui pratique O O O O avec Bigpants dans un appartement. Le jam est coupé de moitié quand le voisin un peu violent vient cogner à la porte. La musique vient avec un livret de photos numériques.
