Truly awesome musician...
must go and see him play. apparently he plays on the new portishead album??!!?
By crook or by schnook.
Well, I only saw him the once at BRNLV CLB, but it was good.
bit i still have no idea what he sounds like?
how old is he - i get the impression from that interview that he has been doing it a fair while
his live shows are improv.
I've seen him play dozens of times and it's pretty much always different from the previous time, and it really depends on what bits he can borrow on the day (as he says in the interview) or carry from home in a carrier bag on a bike. In the past I've seen him play with a large round pencil eraser and a bin, another time it was a battery operated fan and a guitar lying on its side. Once he just walked around the club singing made up words at the top of his lungs.
Such a nice guy too.
i also like his friend alex's music:
www.myspace.com/alexanderthomas (i think)
he plays theremin into a loop pedal.
here's what you're looking for:

We all know what you French are like when it comes to fidelity.
no one complains.
I don't have one, but I'm a bad french !
and probably the nicest person in the world too.
Word. I didn't really get the music when I saw him play. But talking with him and discovering we have matching tastes, he is now awesome. Hypocritical? I shit it.
i saw a brilliant art/music film that had 'im in it called Cutting Up My Friends or something similar. it was well good
