Chant : Jeanne
After 5 years as leader of the famous « Flying Cheddars Lovers », a kind of « trash ballroom dancing band” specialized in covering Gregorian sacred songs, Jeanne has now decided to stop the booze !
Piano/Mélodica : Mathias
Mat’s childhood took place in a little African village in south Botswana , where he was initiated to sacred dancings and musical habits of Congalaabawanaa. He’s never been quite the same ever since.
Guitare : Tom
Tom met one day Pat Metheny after a gig in Nancy (east of France). He immediatly kicked the guy’s face to steal his guitar. In fact he never leaves it alone, even taking it under the shower, which explain the weird sounds…
Basse : Serge
After being explelled from England for setting fire to a pub where some band were playing live using a “dreaded” drum machine, he writes his first album with around 54 post punk songs, all written in 4 days.
A short history of Dazie Mae
Why do we call ourselves DM ?
Of course, the famous Blues song from Johnny Lee Hooker. But also, with a slight different spelling, it is the “femme fatale” hero of the famous comic by Li’l Abner from the forties and fifties. And indication of how retro we are…
A musical genre ?
Well that’s a hard one! Just about a mix of everything (rolk, blues, jazz & bossa) At first that was mainly covers from anglo-saxon folk/rock from the 60/70. Then some original materials came along. In 2008, the band took a new turn towards “unexpected” arrangements of pop standarts. Played live in Paris in the spring of 2008.
We are now actively working on new original materials, songs with a center theme, the imaginary life of DM.
If you have been a reader of the famous comic strip, have old copies, know more about the story of DM, please write to us. We would like to know about her life, write more about the kind of women she was. Was Lou Reed right about her smelly feet???
