Zad Kokar & Les Combi Beyaz
CREATING A NEW STRASBOURG COSMOLOGY. Strasbourg: mostly unremarkable and rather unassuming, it’s pretty much the designated transit area between France and Germany. But as in all unsuspecting places, there is a rumbling beneath the surface. In this case, it comes from a clanging, echoing protean presence, materialized into a warped dadaist reverie in a hand-painted onesie. Darting unpredictably around a vortex of weirdo noise, free-hand punk and alien hip hop, Zad Kokar could easily embody a modern iteration of the Residents' spirit, equipped with the kind of boyish guilelessness that is as surprising as it is disarming.
