What ? Who ? When ? Where ? How ? But above all… Why ? Voilà few words & a handful of images to give you a (very smally) little idea of the «top of the iceberg» from the myriad of my plural arghtivities > > > un poco SERIOUS, mucho FRIVOLOUS & siempre AUDACIOUS !

→ ↓ ↑ ← Since 1987, we —with my hermano Esteban— cultivated our own (genuinely) social and (voluntarily) non∼commercial networks… So it is therefore natural that i do not use facebook, nor twitter, neither discogs, no snapchat, ni instagram, ni linkedin, ni tiktok… «Ni ! Ni ! Ni !» Without closure but with firmness. My real informations are only spreaded through my virtual bulletins directly spa(s)mmed into your consenting & greedy email box as seasonal newsletters ; Thanks to my amigo propagande.org for the great beauty autonomy internet server…
Auto • production | Auto • distribution | Auto • promotion | Auto • derision | Auto • provocation | Auto • contradiction
When my certainties become your doubts, my doubts remain certainties… Patience & perseverance. Carelessness & impertinence. Let’s exchange, confront, contradict, argue always with derision ! I never forget that «art can be much a breath, and money such an asphyxia». Destroy boredom. Laugh loud. Discover without respite. Let’s dance as we please. Create surprise. Sabotage their crisis.

Happy aNGRry reading & see you too soon, on the roads…

This is not a label → ↑ ↓ ← ! a N G R r ! is only a tiny ridiculous structure of —decibels & visuals— architectures∼adventures which, since 1993, express my reckless angerr… For the pleasures of your eyes & ears : MadameMacario’s vinyl & textil, plastic, sonic, graphic, kinetic, eclectic releases have no equal to feast your senses, in every∼many senses ! Ardent zealot defender of non∼profit capitalism, MonsieurMacario strongly claims a permissive, passive and sluggish culture, ah ah !!

→ ↑ ↓ ← Before —between 1987 & 1992, so with Esteban—, already scattered around a radio show and helping & sharing through various adventures —concerts among other tours— as well as scattered openings of places∼spaces, we would experiment ourselves by editing a yearly funzine ANTI, then a monthly newsletter KOIDNŒUF?, also by cooking three ecstatic analog vinyls with our stammering and hesitant label & distro AlternativNoise ↓ ↓ ↓
This is not a booking agency → ↑ ↓ ← MadameMacario is only an operato(u)r for pathetic acrobats, noisy thugs, fanatic craftsmen, neurasthenic entertainers : CURATOR for curious soirées around Paris (france) & its suburbs as well as delicious voyages all over europe, i organize daring journeys among other disconcerting concerts of disturbing arghtists : Romance performances, erecting screenings, disaster theaters, pamphlet puppets, chiatica musica, overflow shows… My individual∼collective is a rowdy family (dis)organization for hectic, eclectic & organic (re)creations…

This is not a shop → ↑ ↓ ← aNGRRykULTURRa is only a simple proposal of itinerant and shimmering diffusion using the mechanics of western consumerism (commercialism) as skilful excuses in order to share, meet, transmit sounds & images… Brewing. Grosso modo it is a selection of cultural fetishes bringing together hundreds of international, original, wobbly, shaggy items : Vinyls, Cassettes, CD, VHS, DVD, Comix, Books, Zines, Newspapers, Magazines, Postcards, Tshirts… in the form of flesh∼and∼blood meetings & direct, circumspect pals sales ↓ ↓ ↓

Therefore, it is just a network of disposing of household products for (con)summers from future cultures ; A catalog of materialist solicitation from subversive aberrations and other alternative contradictions ; Come visit my «gossips’ stand» in company of MonsieurMacario : Fake latino.

This is not a voice → ↑ ↓ ← It is only the evolution∼ebullition of a je-ne-sais-quoi mixing sounds & noises through (re)moving and visceral, animal, vital deepy∼sleepy feelings∼neurosis ; Because —oh yeah !—, Monsieur(&)MadameMacario → alias M.C. à Rio, Madame Bastardo, Fat Macario, Mac Lyndon, Monsieur Quiconque… has more than one (vocal) arrow to its bow, between grotesque singing, abracadabrantesque yelling and burlesque bodying ; Articulating & gesticulating in various∼curious (de)formations∼(con)fusions responding to sweet names∼appellations ↓ ↓ ↓
This is not a festival → ↑ ↓ ← It is only raw arts, improvised live∼acts, twisted noises, performance dementia, video rodeo, direct action exhibitions, fuckedup setups, passion discussions, and tons of other concrete practices… The first edition was tinkered in 2003 with bits of string & nibbled energy on everyone’s free time. Undoubtedly, in 18 turbulent years, Sonic Protest remains an amazing DO∼IT∼OURselves french (dis)connection which detonates, astonishes, gropes, beats up, messes around : Unusual discoveries : Demanding openings : All explicit audiences : Crazy shivers : Undisciplined varieties → Monsieur(&)MadameMacario always contribute as free electron, deacon !
