- We were young and broad-shouldered but without
many articles, honorary titles or self-praising
speeches because nobody knew us (except people from
Annecy, Annemasse and Habère Poche) and,
moreover, we were virgin (artistically speaking) or "
pure " as in purebred. What else could we say to
attract your attention or, failing that, your
curiosity. We were 4, from Annecy and had been playing
since 1990 in various bands (La Cuve, Buddha
Simpson, Surfin' Spiders...). We had the strength
of our 20 years of age and were dreaming of Jon
Spencer's beauty, 16 Horsepowers' gloom-melancholy and
1983 REM's power-pop. We wanted from the start to
create the rock of the year 2000, but our roots were
deep and our weariness was innate (the one and only
machine we used was a death-killing ELGAM 1967).
- We deliberately use the past tense because
Maloney Site Control's story dramatically ended up on
a secondary road on September 4th, 1999.
In loving memory of Nicolas
