Franco-Scottish-Bolivian group Jacques Caramac & The Sweet Generation release their new single ‘Snowballs’ on 7” ‘snowball coloured’ vinyl via Everyday Life Recordings/ Rocket Girl on 5th August.
The follow-up to debut single ‘It Takes All Sorts…’, the Euro-Lou Reed glam pop racket of ‘Snowballs’ is backed with ‘Take It Where You Find It’ - replete with its Johnny Thunders tribute solo, it is believed to be the only rock’n’roll song to mention battenberg cake.
Comprising Jean-Baptiste Ganivet (bass), Raphael Mura (drums) – both of Underground Railroad - Pablo Schollaert (keys) and Kevin Retoryka (vocals, guitar), the whiff of Mansun’s first album, MGMT’s second album, Jacno, Bobby Conn, Can & Eno is strong in JC&TSG.
And with Marc Riley already spinning tracks from the forthcoming album, ‘The Highs & Lows of Jacques Caramac & The Sweet Generation’ (now due around Oct), it appears Jacques Caramac’s world may be orbiting closer to our universe than expected.
Having just stormed the Paris is Burning French music night in June, the band’s next live appearances are 28th June at Tigerfeet @ The Alleycat, London and then back at The Lexington, performing at the Rocket Girl Presents night on 31st July in support to Eat Lights Become Lights, The KVB and DJ Andy Weatherall. More dates tbc soon.
