Artists / Bands

official site of the swiss band whose fifth record came out on Pandemonium Rdz.
Just out : "anliker", a 12 inch of Amor Fati remixes.

an amazing and inventive French band which truly deserve to issue an album.
Intelligent music expressing a lot of feelings, or no feeling at all... cold, Noise, Experimental... warm, beautiful, Noise...

Cerberus Shoal
Some years ago our pal Gavin, from Stick Figure, had helped this band to put out its first album : "And farewell to hightide". Which is how we discovered one of the best American band of today. Since then, those "Mainers" issued two more albums, and several singles making their mark in the world of beautiful and Spacey music.
Cerberus Shoal tour the States & Canada a lot, and they are intelligent and hardworking musicians. "Homb", their latest release was one of the most seducive record of 1999. Wielding the usual drums/guitar/bass assortment of instruments plus piano, brass, violin, didjeridoo, theremin, flute, congas, & some other ones harder to identify... the group takes you on a relaxing trip. Go for a delightful journey into the world of original music.

Double Nelson
Official site of one of the most interesting french band

Friends of Double Nelson who have important things to reveal and share with you...

Dionysos come from Valence and offer experimental pop/rock sonorities... very gifted they appeared on our "Popdemonium" split CD.
Now a Major band.

Side project of Hervé Thomas : grand electronica. Don't miss it !

An interview with Hint - in french ! -

They just appeared on an Erase yer Head single and are one of the best rock band...

definitely one of the wyldest band alive, and a very seducing one on records. After five essentials albums one should positively range oXbow among the not-to-be-missed... The best band ever produced by Albini, much better than Shellac, it's a shame they are so underrated. Listen to "Serenade in Red" (SSt records in US / Crippled Dick Hot Wax for Europe) their latest masterpiece, rarely has an album been so intense and attractive.

Pineal Ventana
A cool band from Atlanta, Georgia (USA) in between experimental and Noisy.
They are also to be blamed for the compilation "Our heat your moisture" featuring God-Co, Pineal Ventana, Melted Men, Morsel, & more... All in all 26 US acts worth discovering.

Un des plus prometteurs nouveau groupe Français. Leur premier album, paru chez Ultra Violet, est tout en finesse et talent. A découvrir.

Rabies Castes is a band from Jerusalem which has been heavily influenced by Unsane...

Ron Anderson
Former member of the Molecules, Ron has appeared on over 20 records. One of them being RONRUINS "ketsunoana" on our label.

A great news is that the upcoming and fourth album by the London-based Spaceheads will be out really soon on Pandemonium Rdz.
Believe me I'm proud to welcome such an unique and talented band... a duo of trumpet and drums, one of those rare bands that effortlessly cross and make redundant all musical categories and boundaries.
Their music constantly disguises and reinvents itself as it moves dynamically through beautiful melodies to outrageous noise... equally at home alongside rock bands, on World Music and Jazz stages, they regularly play at improvised music festivals and with DJs on the dance scene.
"Angel Station" will offer 15 songs totalizing more than 70 mns of Groove, delicious ambiences. Check their site...
