French Avant Prog band Jack Dupon is always a surprise! And so far it has been always a good surprise! Tête De Chien (2014) is a live album released by the band in July. You will also find the same release in DVD. Recorded in December 2013, Tête De Chien (2014) is a concert that is based on their latest release (at the time), Jésus L’aventurier (2013). Out of the 6 tracks presented in the live album 5 of them belong to that studio album. The exception being ‘Miaou’, a new piece written for this release that is actually just a short intro kinda of thing.
You may say: “Hey, if 5 out of 6 tracks are in their last studio album why bother with this live release?” Well, a fair question I would say, my thoughts on the topic exactly. But you see, bands like Jack Dupon are completely different monsters on a live enviroment. They play this pieces in a new way, if they seemes improvised in their studio versions you have something even more improsived here.
If you know the band I think you should get this release because of the power behind the live performance, if you’re not convinced then get the DVD version and watch Jack Dupon being the crazy character Jack Dupon is.
Jack Dupon is part of a revival of Avant Prog in France. For me the three big names being Jack Dupon itself, Rhùn and Mucho Tapioca. Out of France we also have the North American act miRthkon. Bands that rely in the Avant Prog genre without indulging themselves in no musicality whatsoever. They rely on a well balanced mix of crazyness with a musical approach to it and Jack Dupon is the top of the lot!!
