cheveu

I like weird and I like good and Cheveu fits that description. The French band has just released it’s fourth album titled Bum and it just might be their best and weirdest record yet. How could they surpass their cover of Vanilla Ice‘s Ice Ice Baby in terms or strangeness you ask? Ok, maybe Bum isn’t their overtly strangest album. Actually they dial down one kind of weird and dial up another kind. Before they came off as arty punks willing to graffiti over anything, on Bum they are more into a prog rock otherworldly weirdness. They take elements from bands like Hawkwind, Wall of Voodoo, the Intelligence, Brainiac and Devo and come up with something all their own.

You can stream/buy/download the record from Born Bad Records’ bandcamp page.

  1. Another great find and accurate write-up. Thanks for the introduction to this band. Looks like you can buy this on vinyl!

    • I’m hoping that Kill Shaman will have it soon so that we can save a little $$ on postage.

  2. I really rate this lot! I hope they tour soon.
