Balagan's real name is Sylvain Perge, born in 1957. He improvises freely on guitar, trombone, keyboards en is drawn to soundscapes, whether natural, scenic, urban, industrial or any other kind.
Balagan was part of numerous projects under the names of 'the Black Dogs', 'Sound Maker', 'Balagan' and 'Balagan project'. Sylvain also worked with visual artists such as movie makers and installation artists, such as Fabrice Charles en the Parish dus 'the Destination'.
Lärmschutz lets their music be inspired by Sylvain's A-side, by using the same broad palette of sounds and instruments on this recording. The full scope of instruments and the same open mind while recording is what draws the two sides together.

Dark, Drone-y sax, funky drumming, and eerie synth. Dead Neanderthals delivers the goods again in the way only they can. Amazing track and a cool ass shirt to go with it. Can't wait for their next release Gwynplaine de Pétroleuse
