  THE EXILE ITCH
 HAZ 043/044

Mardi Gras.bb is back: And how! Grandioser, more glorified and more massive than ever. As if there were no today and no tomorrow, the emminent orchester accompanying "the last big entertainer" marches through the album which is – in words, sights and sounds – more than capable in starting a new epoch. In the vernacular of the great songwriters, Le Docteur du Son surfs through the glorified spectacle and operates the many tongued soundmachine Mardi Gras.bb like a humanoid synclavier, unfolds it to symphonic dimensions and refolds it to the sound of a singular acoustic guitar. An album like a monument, a blazing beacon as a reference for all to come. And as if this were not enough: In the current of the mother album – unceasingly demanded by fans and the press alike – the live testimonial flows, not as one of those fancy DVD gimmicks but as one grown up, 90 minute full length concert movie that by the press date was already searching for its peers in the pool of international film festivals.

Even after selling 100.000 albums, Mardi Gras.bb 2007 is – in words, sights and sounds – the same as it ever was. Pop Ruckus!
