Get Back Guinozzi!

Now comprising a 5-piece band based between London and the South of France, Get Back Guinozzi! is the brainchild of two French friends, Eglantine Gouzy and Fred Landini. Front-person Eglantine is someone FatCat have been talking with for a while, having posted three of her solo tracks on our online demo MP3 archive way back in 2004. having remained in regular contact, in Spring 2008 Eglantine (at the time living alone deep in the jungle in India whilst recording a solo album) mailed us a CDR of the band project she’d been working on with Fred, which immediately enchanted us.

The roots of Get Back Guinozzi! lay in Fred’s composing fifteen “one-minute tracks” for a contemporary dance company, using a minimal set up of a guitar, rhythm box, and only one keyboard sound.  These compositions yielded the melody for the song ‘L.A.’ Having already collaborated with her on some previous tracks, he sent London-based Eglantine an early instrumental version of the song to work on and loved what she did with it. Fred then sent her the music for ‘Go Back to School’ and the pair were so excited by the results that they decided to form a band. More tracks were sent across the internet during Winter 2007, with Eglantine adding vocals, some keyboards, percussion and weird electronics, until a full album worth of material was formed. Following further meetings and conversations, tracks were sharpened, more songs were recorded, and the album was eventually re-mixed by Michael Beckett (alias Schneider TM’s Kpt. Michigan), and set for release on FatCat in October 2009. A five-piece band (drums, bass, guitar, keyboards, vox) was formed and played their debut shows in September 2008.

The video is directed by Sophie Gateau, and is “based on a particles system which react to the music and which will deform each member of the band more and more as the time passes and the performance gets more expressive.
