Klimperei & GNG met in real life a few years ago during Music for Toys festival. Since then, they have created a character, called Alfred. Scraps of life of that fictionnal character are the basis of the 13 songs of a vinyl album to be released at the beginning of October on the label MonsterK7. This collaboration is the result of the confrontation of two visions : Klimperei’s instrumental toy music and GNG’s electro DIY experiments.


KLIMPEREI

Dozens of albums, prestigious collaborations (Frank Pahl, Pierre Bastien, David Fenech, Madame Patate, Dominique Grimaud, Voxfazer, Palo Alto, Don Simon y Telefunken...), music for dance, theâtre, television, advertising and a very few public appearances : Klimperei, founded in 1985, is defined today as something lazily swirling at the junction of toy music, experimental, prog and minimal.

GNG

Founded in 1997, GNG is a French electronica-pop duo. These two old friends create “home made” songs on which sound collages mix with other more synthetic textures.

Adieu Alfred
----------------------------------------------
In the light
In the light
Of the toy car
On the back seat
Plastic Baby
Plastic Baby
I gave you the best I can
In the light
On the back seat
And a twisted key
Ahuri j’ai l’air
In the light
Of the toy car
Plastic Baby
Track Name: alfred & l'oméga
I was a little boy
Alone in the woods
Like the other children
Playing dirty with my hands

I was a little bird
Flying in the sand
Like other little birds
I was crying for nothing

I was a little bird…
I had a brand new toy…
I was a little boy
I had another toy

I had a brand new toy
A kind of little boy
I sent him in the woods
Like all my other toys

I had a brand new toy
A kind of little girl
I sent her in the attic
Like all my other toys

I was a little bird…
I had a brand new toy…
I was a little boy
I had another toy

I was a little bird…
I had a brand new toy…
I was a little boy
I broke another toy
