Powered by Audioscrobbler™This is a c+p of 2005 Biography posted on the recommended wikimic.org website.

Cracking tapes and CD-R's are the ground for this distorted personal musical diary, frenetically recorded on a plastic tape recorder. These are the first steps of Electrophönvintage, the solo project of Rémi Parson. Both alert and prolific, the one man band multiplies albums and this is how Montauban-based label Plastic Pancake released in April 2000 a 4-track EP "I Don't Want To Stay" which, despite apparent technical simplicity, seduced the critics with its variety. A strange voice and a clumsy guitar will do. In the meantime comes the success of The Bright Period - first album by A Place For Parks (UR 02) where Rémi also plays guitar.

Electrophönvintage takes a break until 2003, when the project is brought back to life via intimate and touching gigs where new songs are played. We Sang A Yéyé Song was recorded in one day by Pat at studio ATL (A place for parks, Angil) with the help of Anicet Rohée (A Place For Parks) on drums and Sébastien Llinares (Won, A Place For Parks, Minimilk, founder of label Nowaki) on bass. He then breaks with his do-it-yourself solitary composing habits. Made of new songs written in his Grenoble student flat and older songs found on ancient tapes, We Sang A Yéyé Song marks the return of Electrophönvintage, with, this time, the necessary determination to get out his teenage isolation. Strengthened by the most appropriate and flexible rhythmic section, the songs of Electrophönvintage finally brilliantly take shape and dare with uncluttered classicism a beautiful pop.

In a word, the unlikely encounter between Belle & Sebastian's English pop classicism and the American Moldy Peaches' antifolk lo-fi sound... Faithful to his maniac principles, like a southerner Felt, Electrophönvintage offers his tiny stories and home made arrangements with the same fervour as he would have at the very start, drawing in 10 tracks and 18 minutes a contrasted landscape with falsely arid contours. We Sang A Yéyé Song is a singular un album, beyond tendencies or formats, with which it is impossible not to fall in love instantly.
