EN COLLABORATION AVEC AHBON PRODUCTIONS
JOHNNY DOWD

Depuis 98, Johnny Dowd a fait son trou dans les marges, comme évadé d’un vieux David Lynch ou d’une nouvelle de Stephen King.
Une discographie en noir et blanc contrasté, tendue et malsaine, qui semble avoir été tournée, et torturée, à la cave, sous une ampoule grésillante.
Johnny Dowd habille et déshabille ses chansons avec l’application maniaque d’un fétichiste : no-wave, mambo, post-blues, americana psychotique ou proto-electro.
Avec la gouaille morbide d’un Mark E. Smith white trash et les nerfs en pelote d’Alan Vega.

rough translation:

IN COLLABORATION WITH AHBON PRODUCTIONS
JOHNNY DOWD

Since 98, Johnny Dowd made his hole in the margins, as an old escapee David Lynch or a new Stephen King. A discography contrast black and white, tense and unhealthy, which appears to have been shot and tortured in the basement, under a sizzling bulb. Johnny Dowd dresses and undresses her songs with the application of a maniac fetish: no-wave, mambo, post-blues, americana psychotic or proto-electro. With morbid banter of a white trash Mark E. Smith and the creeps Alan Vega.
