L'Œillère, Classical Guitar Hero Comes to London

L'Oeillère - Hay! La Gringa Caracha! Zaïna from Ziya on Vimeo.

In 2007, Nicolas Gardrat  decides to break out of his room and offer
Bordeaux and surrounding areas his barbaric classical guitar
compositions. Now he's coming to London to do the same. February 10th at 113 Dalston Lane which is an impossible-to-find 'space' inside a house on a road in Dalston....Sunday 10 february
7.3Opm L'Oeillère + la gloïre + CamDeas + guest

Here's the write-up he sent us:
Accompanied by a violinist, he played for two years a repertoire
called "les Memoires de l'Oeil", inspired by ramshackle rock,
judeo-arabic and contemporary music.

- A first album is released by « Les Potagers Natures ».

Suddenly lonely,he migrates to Brussels, and renames himself "
L'Œillère ", he then begins to branch out with musicians from
different backgrounds (Secret Chiefs 3, Jonas Zugzwang, TeTsuo, Aurélie Emery....),
while continuing to compose for his solo repertoire.

His work is centred on the uncertain theory that it is possible to at
the same time, tell stories without words, use an acoustic instrument
that draws a variety of sounds that could turn an electric guitar
green with envy, to write musical pieces suited for rock,jazz and
orchestral formations… and finally,to play them alone in order to
master the feel and the emotions from beginning to end.

-2nd solo Album, FIASCO, out on march 2012, with « En V’là » and « Les
Pourricords »
-Trio album with guys from TeTsuo on « A Tant Rêver du Roi »

More than 100 gigs in France, Belgium, and Germany, L'Œillère did openings
for Secret Chiefs 3, Ruins, Fred Frith's CosaBrava,  Anekdoten, Estradasphere,
Cabezas de Cera, Fat32, Chocolat Billy, Electric Electric, Alastairs
Roberts, L'Ocelle Mare, TeTsuo, A.p.a.a.t, Mein Sohn William, La Terre
Tremble, Cam Deas, Radikal Satan....
