Les Georges Leningrad Deux Hotdogs Moutarde Chou
Never mind saving rock and roll, how about saving punk rock? And finally, besides fellow Montrealers One 976, the solution is found via the feats of Les Georges Leningrad. And like the Residents (the kings of being "different"), they take a deceptive affinity towards punk but with an amateur twist, putting it through further twists until no one knows what is exactly going on, but still find that they love it. They can make a distant and almost indistinguishable instrument become a voice, or use a human voice to sound like a new kind of instrument. One would think they are skilled engineers as well, having constructed the perfect black box through which to run punk - some kind of device that has a surreal setting with a value of 432.373. The array of weird beatbox rhythms and organs will drive you mad, but in the right way, because it's as if you've finally escaped the constraints of being bored by all the regular garbage that is shoved down your throat via the radio and newspapers.
