    A tribute to Rachid Taha

    Life, John Clewley, Published on 18/09/2018

    » Rachid Taha, the iconoclastic and rebellious singer from Algeria, died last week in a Paris suburb. He was 59 years old. He had emigrated to France at the age of 10 with his family and emerged in the early 1980s with his band Carte de Sejour, which he founded in 1980 in Lyon. In 1986, he made waves with a cynical, mocking cover of chanson icon Charles Trenet's song, Douce France (Sweet France). Adding Arabic oud and drums and jumping into the song with a punkish snarl and biting (new) lyrics, this song set the tone for his entire career.

    The old becoming new

    Life, Published on 04/09/2018

    » You know you're at a Scrubb concert when the majority of the audience shows up in striped tops with khaki or olive-green cargo pants. This look is part of the package of the faces of the band, Ball and Muay, along with the addition of old-age jokes that they now crack willingly. But it's not just the 40-something duo who feel the gravity of ageing, as throughout Saturday evening you also hear the audience themselves muttering under their breath: "I'm getting too old for this" or "I don't think my body is cut out for this anymore" after a string of pumping hits.
