[1] kilo of black bondage - "fear the windows"

The musicians of [1] Kilo of Black Bondage were united for the first time in 2003 during the I.D.E.A.L festival at the Lieu Unique in Nantes, France. Then, moving from stage to stage in France and Europe, they enriched and cultivated an original musical material made from evolving textures, sonic landscapes – more so than songs – that borrow from rock, dub, hip-hop and electronica, responding to the texts which are dark as they are precious. The album ‘Fear The Windows’, today released on Ronda, is the crystallization of this musical evolution. The group is composed of :

- Aka_bondage : Since 1996, with his beginning at the centre of Osaka Bondage, Nicolas Marmin (aka_bondage) has created a musical universe using electronic manipulation, rhythmic deviations and experimental sonorities. He has released several albums, participated on a number of compilations and has collaborated with musicians as diverse as Eric M or dDamage. Recently he has joined stage with the group Colder (Output recordings) as bassist, and is a regular participant with Damo Suzuki's Network (the legendary singer of Can) with the French Doctors. Nicolas also plays with the Italian quartet Permanent Fatal Error. And finally, he is one of the animators of the radio program ‘Epsilonia’, probably the oldest show consecrated to experimental music on Radio Libertaire in Paris.

-- Black Sifichi : equally at ease with a microphone or a mixing table, his stories often colored with black humor have made him a reference in the world of ‘spoken word’. Urban poet, the tone of his voice is reminiscent of those of Ken Nordine, Tom Waits or James Mason and the delivery has been compared to those of Tricky or Saul Williams. He is equally a DJ and the producer of the radio program ‘Audiometric’, which is broadcast in Paris, Montpellier and Limoges. We have heard him on a multitude of albums notably with The Black Dog, Brain Damage, Norscq (Super Stoned), Lena, Vista Le Vie, Negative Stencil, Bernd Friedmann... He is also the charismatic singer of the group 'Tempsion' who’s album "Rectifier" (DVD + CD) has just been released, and an active collaborator with the group Ez3kiel.

- SomeKilos : Founder of the cult fanzine "18, jardin" (18, Garden), member of the group My Own (album released on Untraviloet, and several vinyl's with one split EP on Ruminance with Sun Plexus), Kilo assures the role in [1] Kilo of Black Bondage as drummer.

The album ‘Fear The Windows’ was recorded, mixed and produced by Norscq (The Grief / Colder / Von Magnet) between 2004 & 2005. Lori-schön-Berg, member of ‘Berg Sans Nipple’ plays trumpet on several tracks on the album.
