descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Locomotive is a group directed by composer/guitarist André Duchesne sided here by guitarists Claude Fradette, Francis Grandmont and drummer Rémi Leclerc. Locomotive transgresses the sound of the now defunct group Les 4 Guitaristes de l'Apocalypso Bar.

Tightly knit together, these eighteen strings cut a fine figure and give it all they have. Each guitar has its own tone and the percussion is never short of effects, off-beat rhythms and punch. A dynamic quartet which plays an intelligent rock and knows how to temper its ardours. An authentic, explosive music machine, energetic and extra-sensorial.

Locomotive is an album on which the melodic rails, sustained by Duchesne's fantastic tales, become entangled to syncopated rhythms and the freedom of improvisation.

Locomotive, a nice way to go off-track!"-Ambiances Magnetiques
