Andre Duracell returns to action with his solo synth / drum explosion – like a one man Lightning Bolt.
Duracell is Andre Diamant/Andrew Dymond, unique one-man live-drumming phenomenon from Lyon. Using lightning-precision playing on a stripped-down kit and electronic triggers to play 8-bit chiptunes, including retro-game music as well as noise rock, he isn't afraid to acknowledge his influences via covers of the likes of Lightning Bolt, Aphex Twin alongside his favourite retro games. Duracell is mainly a live project but Andre has also recorded with DJ Scotch Egg.
'The chaotic drum rumble of Lightning Bolt meets the elegaic 8-bit video game scores of Turrican and Space Harrier in the feverish mind of Andre Diamant. Bass drum, snare drum, and modular synth meld together into a cyclone of sound that shreds clothes and scrambles braincells.' Plan B
