SEBKHA CHOTT music, discography, MP3, videos and reviews
Sebkha Chott was unleashed upon the world in 2000, when two aspiring students wanted to take a step outside ‘normal’ music confines. Throwing etiquettes aside, we are left with one of the most varied and unexpected interbreeding of genres and musical ideas Avant-prog has seen since Mr Bungle. For the next three years the band experienced a periodical transition encompassing several different forms and line-up additions (bass, brass). An important annex to the band occurred with the arrival of Mustach’ Man (singer) in 2003, constituting to a wider theoretical pursuit. 2003 also saw to the release of their first full album “De l’existence de la Mythologie Chottienne en 7 cycles”, on the newly founded ‘Amicale du Mekanik Metal Disco’ (AMMD) label.

With the closing of 2005 is looming its head; Sebkha Chott hit the studios to record their acclaimed 2006 album, ‘Nagah Mahdi – Opuscrits en 48 Rouleaux’. The album stylishly mashes influences oscillating between the of realms of; Frank Zappa, Magma, Mr Bungle, Fantomas, not to mention the theatrical pomp of Monty Python. The stage/live performance shows are an occasion not to be missed, finding themselves right at home with performing acts like Sleepytime Gorilla Museum. Through theatrical improvisations they depict their peculiar stand on a weird world populated with zany inhabitants personified by the musicians.

Switching from Metal to disco to Jazz to Soul all within the blink of an eye, Sebkha Chott is bound to appease the darkest dreams of a Fantomas/Mr Bungle fan. But lets not pigeonhole them to this minority; if you are a fan of challenging music check this one out. Highly recommended.
