Coming Soon

JUST A CHILD

Réal : Kidam

Shot in Paris, March 2007

Coming soon is made of Howard Hughes, Billy Jet Pilot, Ben Lupus, Alex Banjo & Leo Bear Creek. They’re from Annecy and their ages range from 13 to 25. Their influences span from Hank Williams to Nick Cave, Moldy Peaches 2000 to Johnny Thunders, Leonard Cohen to Silver Jews, Bob Dylan, Beat Happening, and on and on. In this band, everyone writes songs. Coming Soon has been in existence for a long time, but the current formation is a fusion of a few former incarnations that you can check in the “links” section. All those bands gathered once before to record Kimya Dawson’s Antsy Pants , distributed on Planet X.

HOME BLUES

Réal : Kidam

Shot in Paris, March 2007

These films were made on February 14th, the day they played their first Paris show at the Pop-In. It was a show of such quality that it amazed everybody there, and the regular clients hadn’t seen that kind of performance since Jeff & Jack Lewis or Adam Green years before… It was a show that was, of course, too short, so we decided to “Take it Away” to République. “What You’ve Left Behind” was filmed on the same day at the Père-Lachaise cemetery.

WHAT YOU’VE LEFT

Réal : Kidam

Shot in Paris, March 2007

Coming Soon just got signed by a French label that will put out their album New Grids in September. Meanwhile, a cool EP vinyl is available for sale at their shows.

They will be playing La Boule Noire on April 14th at the occasion of a Kidam night with Seb Martel, Denis Lavant, Vic Moan, Gaspard Claus, and Julien Cottereau…
