This Brest-based duo is leading the race for EBM and gives us their 3D view : Dada, Daho and DAF
In the bare-faced cheek of Maman Küsters, Brest has its hands on a real gem of rare brilliance. There are equal measures of sheer nerve, of fiddling about, of agony and of tortured thoughts. We really get a sense of tormented, wound up electronic music and rock – real rock, raw and on edge.
This mysterious Breton duo celebrates the adventurous, the accidental, and the dark thriller. The album is haunted by a talented Dadaistic madness and by the boozy words of a Gainsbourg or a Bashung. These fatalistic, automatic lyrics, carried along by an electronic beat that seems high on plutonium, bring to mind the pounding of a Chrislo Haas, the man-machine behind pioneering bands Liaisons Dangereuses and DAF. From now on Maman Küsters is firmly in position as the one and only example of this genre.
