Psychotic Sidewinders & The Groundswell Motion "French Psyche"

ACUD CLUB 21h → Concert

Pleasure Seekers Club presents wild psych from France! The Psychotic Sidewinders, a new project from Lille, are here to play a wild yet under control 60's inspired garage rock and psych.


Psychotic Sidewinders
... is a project from Lille's underground scene. They provide some rock music mixing garage sounds and psych influences.

After skimming rock clubs and other weekenders, from London to Madrid and from Paris to Berlin, Louis, Victorien and Emilian, rich of a certain experience, decided in 2018 to set up their own band aiming to investigate new scenes. Jean and Wissem quickly enriched the founding trio to make it happen. It was in September 2018 that they played their first concert in Lille.

Since the band shared the stage with bands like The Black Market Karma, Levitation Room, Frankie and The Witch Fingers, Night Beats and The Warlocks. They are inspired by the fierce garage of Ty Segall or Thee Oh Sees but also by the hovering psych of the Brian Jonestown Massacre,

A demo "Just Because" is online and some songs were recorded in Holland in June.

Victorien Guy - Drums
Lou Szymanowski - Bass/Vocals
Jean Penet - Keyboards
Wissem Bouzar - Lead guitar
Emilian Mierzejewski - Lead Vocals/guitar

The Groundswell Motion
... is a group of French "Psychedelic Rock", born in winter 2018 in Lille.
Influenced by classics, from Doors to Brian Jonestown Massacre, from Allah-Las to Mystic Braves to Levitation Room, psychedelic music is not their only source of inspiration. The Groundswell Motion surf on the various influences that emerge from its six members. The great soundtracks of the famous Ennio Morricone, the world around them, society, nature, the ocean... These elements remain a bottomless source of ideas in their creation.

They develop their musical identity with 1960s guitars, twelve strings with intoxicating melodies and a magnificent Sitar which allows Groundswell Motion to follow a heritage that seems to be dedicated to them.
