Bordeaux duo Aggy Sonora (drums) and Looch Vibrato (guitar/vocals) are a fearsome ball of energy, brewing up a storm of minimalist garage punk in the vein of The Kills. Having toured Europe and the US countless times, and shared the stage with the likes of The Sonics, The Gories, Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees and Kid Congo Powers, MAGNETIX have become known worldwide for their powerful stage performances.
A string of singles and EPs on different French labels have been issued constantly since 2006, followed by three albums on Born Bad Records. They are now priming their latest release for Castle Face Records, whose Irregular Orbits showcase they perform on at this year’s festival.
Castle Face’s Matt Jones: “’The butchest band in Bordeaux’, as John Dwyer so eloquently put it. Looch and Aggie bring an inimitable gallic swagger to their two-piece fuzz-manic whomp. Looch is a towering, slavering rock ‘n’ roll animal in person and when I heard he was recently hit by a car, I worried more about the car. Aggie could chew you up and spit you out with one hand still hitting the snare… as if she could be bothered to!”
