Georgio "The Dove" Valentino & the Melancholics

zat 29/06/2013 - 20:00

"A man without a country in so many ways, this expatriate Floridano planted himself in Brussels and settled into the city like Bill Burroughs in Interzone: discomfited. It is here that he assembled his orchestra, La Société des Mélancoliques, whose ranks include members of the legendary experimental arts collective Tuxedomoon. Artistically, too, Georgio the Dove Valentino has no obvious home, but rather operates in the spaces between several genres: torch song, soundtrack, Kraut-rock, country-and-western, surf, lo-fi and high-concept avant-garde. One doesn’t paint by numbers here. Dove songs are neither "rockers" nor "ballads"; they are extraterrestrial chamber pieces that offer themselves only to the attentive and the expansive, and may be alienates the rest. Don’t blame us if it be so.Sigh. Pass the bottle.
