AXLAUSTADE on “axl au stade:”

“It’s a clin-d’oeil to the riot that took place in 1992 at the Montreal Olympic Stadium, after Axl Rose told everybody to go home and quit the stage 20 minutes or so in the set. Metallica’s show was also stopped when James Hetfield was badly injured by pyrotechnics. Faith No More was the only band that played an entire set that night. The Expos were in Philadelphia that night. The song opens with feedback and a massive drum and bass guitar pickup. It gives the impression that you’re in the middle of the crowd. The guitar plays a solid theme and switches from minor to major which gives the feeling of openness and urgency.”

AXLAUSTADE language of an era

a decade of used illusions and promising riffs

he remembers the eighth of august nineteen-ninety-two in turmoil and decibels

but prefers to imagine things differently

he likes the optimism of various reverbs and birdsongs

AXLAUSTADE towards a silkier new beginning

dozens and dozens of hours jamming in a dark room

and luminous mornings

AXLAUSTADE forgot some of his alternate tunings

all ears to mysticism and rodeo stories

he dreams of a daytime festival and of something to offer

AXLAUSTADE lyricless soundtrack to made-up stories

love of music

lifelines running deep in hand palms

after an albini rendezvous gone kaput

after a cry in the night heard by a mixer of the american west coast beaches

after the feedback of small amplifiers under a plexiglass of freedom

three boys and a pair of electronic bongos

grunge of the future as a new path

an instrumental friendship

979 years before the third millennium AXLAUSTADE invites himself into your home

no sweat

played by steve dumas, francis mineau and jonathan dauphinais

he is now ready to befriend you
