Cheveu on LP

2008 release. After two 7"s applauded by the blogosphere, and after receiving praise from renowned underground critics like Jay Hinman, Doug Mosurak and Byron Coley, Cheveu is invited to the big convention of garage rock in Memphis, Gonerfest in 2006, headlining the party with the likes of Jay Reatard, Jack Oblivian and Viva L'American Death Ray. Kevin from Pink Reason says he's seen one of the best shows of his life. They embark on a West Coast tour set up by DJ Rick (Expe Honzo) with Tyvek and play with a Frames, the Intelligence and Eat Skulls (S-S Records released a Cheveu/Tyvek 7" split for the tour). Then, trying to pull together three years of home-recorded tracks, Cheveu releases it's first LP in March 2008. Cheveu has been called the harbingers of the current shit/pop/gaze movement that includes such different bands as Tyvek, Pink Reason, Times New Viking and TV Ghost. They have also been tagged "glue wave," (a French rock movement) "weird-punk," "art-damaged pop," and also "shit-gaze." Some see that they've contributed a lot to the movement from a more classic garage sound to a more free/experimental and noise music in the U.S., managing to produce noise without f***ing up amps or guitars. All songs have been home-recorded using superimposed live/not live takes, creating a kind of real/old/current feeling. Some see a Metal Urbain/Wire/The Fall influence.
