Giant Sand / Good Luck Suckers / The Last Show In Paris

Year: 2016
Director: Guillaume Déro
Genre: Live Show

Giant Sand, trio originally consisting of Howe Gelb (vocals), John Convertino and Joey Burns (Calexico co-founders in 1998). Protean group born in the 70s, unknown to the general public but admired by the whole alternative scene, Giant Sand is a reference to PJ Harvey, Will Oldham, Grandaddy or Ron Sexsmith. The Giant Sand members often changed their names to put themselves at the head of various projects, including OP8 (1997) where they associated with Lisa Germano for an album hailed by critics. Howe Gelb, undisputed leader often compared to Neil Young, manages to create dark but magical atmospheres thanks to the eclectic music styles that he borrows: rock, jazz, folk or blues. The melodies are clear, the arrangements lavish, Gelb’s voice deep and devastating… Giant Sand drew a dense and eclectic work which is certainly one of the most fascinating of contemporary American music.
