NIHILIST SPASM BAND (the) & SUN PLEXUS 2 - No Victoria
NSBSP2 = NIHILIST SPASM BAND (John B. Boyle, John Clement, Bill Exley, Murray Favro, Art Pratten, Aya Onishi) )+ SUN PLEXUS 2 (Laurent Berger, Sébastien Borgo, Rémy Bux)
The 2 bands first met in 2004 and immediatly an intense friendship was born with a mutual desire to play together and confront the two musical worlds very opposed (the most anti-academic improvisation and no-technic playing totally assumed for the NSB, and the raw post-punk mixed with concrete music composition for the SP2)In 2006, a new meeting happened in Mulhouse (small north-east french city next to the German border and hometown of the SP2) with the arrival of a new member in NSB, drummer Aya Onishi after the tragic death of Hugh McIntyre, bass player, philosophe and founding member.
The two bands entered the "La Mer Rouge Studio" and during two long nights, recorded more than 10 hour of (no-)music!!!!! One part of this mixture happened to be the music on "No Victoria". A new band was born : NSBSP2! -BTR
