(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #281 - Free zone still hits hard (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

From Aimé Césaire to the urban outskirts, Zone libre still hits hard. The guitarist Serge Teyssot-Gay and the drummer Cyril Bilbeaud, who make up since 2005 free-rock group Free Zone, released at the end of 2017 two new detonating albums: Standing in the Ropes and Survival Kit in a hostile environment. ---- From Aimé Césaire to the urban outskirts, Zone libre still hits hard. The guitarist Serge Teyssot-Gay and the drummer Cyril Bilbeaud, who make up since 2005 free-rock group Free Zone, released at the end of 2017 two new detonating albums: Standing in the Ropes and Survival Kit in a hostile environment. ---- For Standing in the Ropes, Marc Nammour (Montreal rapper of the group The Canaille), joined Free Zone for a reading-concert of the poetic work. Notebook of a return to the native country of Aimé Césaire. A poetic text of forty pages published for the first time in 1939. Written in free verse and influenced by surrealism, this is the starting point of the concept of negritude. Marc Nammour had it as a bedside book for a few years. He selected some parts of the work. All revolt and " creative anger "Césaire is transposed in this totally improvised reading at each stage of the group. An original and completely captivating way to discover Césaire. Each of his incisive words strike and resonate perfectly with the notes of the guitarist and the drummer. Galvanizing listen.

Survival kit in a hostile environment revives him with the rap / rock fusion already experimented by Free Zone in his explosive collaborations with Hamé from the group Rumor on The Dead Angle in 2009 or Casey and B.James of the collective Anfalsh on The Tales of Chaos in 2011. This time with an instrumental part much more present thanks to the reinforcement of cornettist Médéric Collignon and saxophonist Akosh S. Au chant, always Marc Nammour but also Mike Ladd, improviser and rapper American. This time, it's the suburbs, rather what's on the periphery, in the broad sense. It actually takes some of the titles of the album Polyurbaine but with a new dose of jazz. Those who know the rapper of La Canaille will find his ability to describe everyday scenes with an impressive ability to transcribe the atmosphere. Like in the piece Garde fou.

Two albums to listen so, like wood to put in the hearth of our revolt, help to cultivate the flame. To better respond to Césaire's injunction: " And especially my body as well as my soul, be sure to cross your arms in the sterile attitude of the spectator, because life is not a spectacle, because a sea pain is not a proscenium, for a shouting man is not a dancing bear. "
