about

CANTHARIDE’s first album “Do the Bzzz with...” is actually a “best-of”... or a compilation... or one hell of a mess, as you like it.

Based on Choumy’s songs and obsessions (the guy’s real name is Pierre Chaissac), recorded here and there over the course of various opportunities and beautiful encounters throughout the years, with the patient support of faithful friends, this album is considered by its author as the best reflection of his musical desires — which have always been many and psychotic. Given the route followed by this upright and passionate musician (former bands include D.I.T., Pudgy, Choum et les Pervers Magnifiques), in the end “Do the Bzzz with...” seems to be the signature of an insatiable music lover bubbling up with creativity.

You won’t have time to get bored : combining polished pop songs with rougher tracks, the whole sparkled with a psychedelic touch, “Do the Bzzz with...” adds together sound eclecticism and consistent, asserted writing. The lyrics are unpretentious, finding their way through different feelings, from an offbeat sense of humour to a deliberate triviality.
In terms of references, Neil Young, Guided by Voices, R.E.M., The Beatles, Bob Mould, Posies, The Pixies, Teenage Fan Club, Sparklehorse and many more have been conjured up.

This is not the work of a sole man.
If Choumy is sometimes the only commander of this drunken boat, all the people who participated in this album (musicians, sound engineers, graphic designers, label managers and most of all friends) have left their mark on it and made its release possible.

All you have to do now is enjoy and... DO THE BZZZ !


"DO THE BZZZ WITH..." le premier album de CANTHARIDE est en fait un best-of... ou une compilation... ou un sacré foutoir, c'est comme vous voulez.

Construit sur la base des chansons et des obsessions de "Choumy" (Pierre Chaissac pour l'état civil), enregistré çà et là au gré des opportunités et de jolies rencontres au fil des années, le tout avec le soutien d'amis fidèles et patients, cet album est considéré par son auteur comme "le meilleur reflet de ses envies musicales, multiples et psychotiques depuis ses débuts". Au vu du parcours de ce musicien intègre et passionné (D.I.T., Pudgy…), il semble simplement que ce soit une signature de la créativité bouillonnante d'un insatiable amoureux de musique.
On a pas le temps de s'ennuyer : entre les pop-songs ciselées et et des passages beaucoup plus rugueux, le tout saupoudré d'un psychédélisme bon teint, "Do The Bzzz with... " est l'addition d'un éclectisme sonore et d'une écriture cohérente et affirmée. Les textes sont sans prétention, entre émotions diverses , humour décalé et aussi, une certaine futilité assumée.
Au petit jeu des références, on a déjà parlé de Neil Young, Guided By Voices, R.E.M., Beatles, Bob Mould, Posies, Pixies, Teenage Fan Club, Sparklehorse et bien d'autres...

Ce n'est pas non plus une oeuvre solitaire.
Si "Choumy" est parfois seul maître à bord de ce bateau ivre, tous les acteurs présents sur ce disque (musiciens, techniciens son, graphiste, tauliers de labels et surtout amis) ont posé leur marque et contribué activement à que cet album existe.


Maintenant à vous d'en profiter et... DO THE BZZZ !!!
