The Snobs - Blend the Horse! (book + CD)
Blend The Horse! is a record of its time: Duck Feeling did some basic tracks on the electric guitar, synthesizer and drum machine that Mad Rabbit edited and shaped into song structures. Then both added various overdubs (samples, vocals, bass, scratch, etc). With six songs in forty-five minutes, Blend The Horse! adds new influences (Broadcast, Radiohead, Tropical Fuck Storm) and brings together opposites dear to The Snobs: electric and electronic, melodic and hypnotic, noisy and pop.
The Snobs was formed by brothers Mad Rabbit (singer, producer) and Duck Feeling (multi-instrumentalist) near Paris, France in the 2000s. They self-released a few albums before A Life Aglow (Bam Balam Records, 2018), a full-length record drawing influences from the psychedelic sixties (The Zombies, Pink Floyd), post-punk (Siouxsie & The Banshees, Wire) and krautrock (Can, Neu!).
In the 2010s, The Snobs worked with new-yorker poet Steve Dalachinsky (1946-2019). They recorded three collaborative albums and played about ten concerts together with a little help from Devil Sister and Fuzzy Weasel on stage. Their final record Pretty In The Morning(Bisou Records, 2019) was recorded live by all five artists.
Mad Rabbit makes short-movies influenced by Buster Keaton and American film noir, music videos and trippy screen projections for The Snobs' live performances.
Duck Feeling writes books (such as Bitches Brew ou le jazz psychédélique, David Bowie, l'avant-garde pop and Sonic Youth published by Le Mot et le Reste) and articles (in journals like Analyse Musicale, Impro Jazz and Volume!) about pop, rock and jazz. He also released a few solo albums.
