Together they fuel the fire of an irridescent musical flame laced with infectious, nearly fatal melodies. Under the patronage of deus ex-machina come producer Joakim Bouaziz, one of Europe’s most talented remixers (for the likes of Air, Lionel Hampton, Tiga, Annie etc.) and the author of the acclaimed « Fantômes » album (Versatile 2002) they take the lead in a most unanticipated way. Frontperson Ker sometimes recalls the greater accomplishments of past geniuses such as Husymans and of course Morrison (again). In Paris, Poni have played a series of exclusive gigs in as prestigious venues as Agnes B’s Galérie du Point du Jour or the more dance inclined scenes of RESPECT and Nouveau Casino. One could qualify their style as rock n roll music but for its uncanny taste for wild hybridation from Itali Disco (Giorgio Moroder) to Noisy, Garage and Murder Ballads (à la Nick Cave).
Such a wide array of taste is something quite unprecendented this side of the Atlantic and recalls the exceptional musical genius of the likes of Arcade Fire or Soni Youth. http://www.ponihoax.com http://www.myspace.com/ponihoax http://www.tigersushi.com DISCOGRAPHY TSR017 BUDAPEST EP OCTOBER 2005 TSRCD011 SHE’S ON THE RADIO JANUARY 2006 TSRCD012 PONI HOAX MARCH 2006 Read more on Last.fm.
