There's no time to hang around and fly!...
We are a female-male duet from somewhere in France. Irene does electronics, keyboards and programming and Pepe plays guitar and screams. We play what we call "industrial punk" by default, since we don't own any other words for it, and meanwhile, we actually got too many words... We are called GRRZZZ, since we just wanted a nasty SOUND-name to be awake as long as possible, not something to get comfortable on big sofas, getting dumb and happy consumers... hopefully we stay reliable to it.
We made 2 records on LP and CD:
-2002: "Un peu de souplesse dans les barbelÚs" (approximately meaning "a bit of suppleness in barbed wires"). The CD version of this 1st one was issued on SORDIDE SENTIMENTAL, legendary French label. Its catalogue displayed bands as THROBBING GRISTLE, JOY DIVISION, TUXEDO MOON, PSYCHIC TV, etc. The LP version was totally DIY GRRZZZ.
-2006: "Optima Ferox"
This 2nd record is issued on MALOKA, French anarcho-punk label, in its LP version. The CD version, formally DIY GRRZZZ, and now D-TRASH in 2008. Another one on 2009? Yes we plan and work on it.
We play most of the time in the European alternative (that means anti-commercial, often anarchist and so on) scene for 9 years now, and this experience is very rich food for our minds. This scene means many locations where, most of the time, in any country (meaning the ones we know of course), a real relationship may happen between us and the people around...ach Jńgermeister! A special mention to squatters organizing gigs and other events in their place: this is the heart of the scene.
