News in brief / 2008, May 25. We recorded a new album late january, at Urs studio with Lionel Darenne. New P f e members are Seb Martel (M, Camille, Salif Keita...), Nicholas Thomas and my old partner Franck Lantignac (Ulan Bator). The album is under process. Performances have restarted. We just did Lyon Nuits Sonores and Grenoble La Bobine as manchion / vetrone / marmin / billet / lantignac: a 5 pieces-electric-band. The forthcoming show at Europavox festival (June 6, 2008) will be a special one, part of a 'Nuit Folk': we'll be a Quartet : manchion / vetrone / martel / thomas, so 3 guitars and 1 vibraphone, plus some special-guests but it's a surprise...
