“Eleven pieces balanced like so many vitriol paints of a society sifted by a youth who can’t stand anymore. Neither the rednecks who shoot at them, nor the pigs who scream at racism, nor the psychiatry queen of the blind and alienating lobotomy, nor the politics of the politicians, nor the violent uncles, nor all the other crap that the future holds for the youth. This youth would finally want to be able to walk freely in the street and let its rage to live. Forgotten depressive rhythms and the no future of “Macadam Massacre”, we throw ourselves here in a frenetic cadence, a string of hymns to the insubordination and freedom, castigating in turn the paranoia security, the chemical jackets, the rape, or the far right. A three-chord recital reinforced by an armada of choristers who manages to transcribe the festive and rowdy aspect of the concerts. Bérurier Noir take the opportunity to refine their unique imagery with a masterful fresco by Laul, making this record a real floor to the stars where clashing energy and clownish rebellion!”
