A little bit after they arrived, they told me they loved my Bikini Kill t-shirt and they all gave me a high-five. I had never seen them before, but because they talked to me in English, I understood it was them. I don’t know if they knew I was going to be there for the Take Away Show.
They looked like teenagers with their flaky nail polish, their dyed hair, Pringles in hands and mini-amps taped-up to their guitars.
Once they asked me if I wanted to be in the video, they gave me a guitar, I started to play and I didn’t dare moving – I was so scared I would miss a note or a word. I was just listening to the singer whispering slowly.
I was standing on the bridge, guitar in hand, hypnotised by a band I had discovered an hour before.
If you can read French, go have a look to Emilie’s blog, it’s awesome and it’s called L’autre musique.
Tomorrow Tulips will play Paris Psych Fest on June, 19th.
