The idea of making an album “tribute” to some actresses who marked me in some films or their personality, their aura, came to me after recording “Catherine J.”, then, later “Monica V.” composed for a concert with Valentina Fanigliulo (Mushy) in Amsterdam in 2013.
These tracks are the “view” of the sensations and deep feelings they inspire me …: the captivating smile of Sandrine Bonnaire, the eyes of Monica Vitti, the failures of Catherine Jourdan, the last hours of Jean Seberg, the distress of Romy Schneider …
“The Silent Storyteller” act out the mood in which these tracks were created.

Quentin Rollet/Thierry Müller en concert le 23/09/2016

Quentin Rollet/Thierry Müller en concert à La Java, dans la soirée “Tube à Essai” orchestrées par Mélanie Bauer, vendredi 23 septembre 2016. 19:30.

« Tous deux mastodontes de l’underground français, seront en duo pour l’occasion. L’auguste Thierry Müller fait rendre gorge à synthés et guitares désaccordées depuis le milieu des années 70 au sein de divers groupes inclassables tous devenus cultes hors de nos frontières. Quentin Rollet est, lui, le saxophoniste le plus indispensable de nos souterrains indie, autant actif dans la musique improvisée hardcore que l’indie français haute-fidélité. »

Ilitch & Ruth… in Bull Tongue Review n°5

Thank you Andrea Feldman, Byron Coley & Thurston Moore!

“Superior Viaduct comes through with another ingenious batch of reissues. The first two Ilitch albums, Periodikmindtrouble and 10 Suicides, are done so beautifully, we were almost tempted to strike the first one from our want list. But fuck that. Andrea Feldman writes beautifully on the band elsewhere in the issue, but these are essential chunks of prog-into-art-punk strangeness that stand up to huge gobs of listening. Like This Heat, these guys gobbled everything good and spat it out in new form. Amazing stuff.” Bull Tongue by Byron Coley & Thurston Moore.
