Monsieur Landslide
updated 04/12/03
Monsieur Landslide

What the band say...

We are Monsieur Landslide, three mid twenties North Westerners who began jamming together in our teenage years.

Monsieur Landslide
What we think of their tracks
"If Crowded House had been born on this side of the world, they may have sounded like Monsieur Landslide. Early Reflections has the same type of simple harmonies and driving acoustics that the Finn boys excel at, but a distinctly rocking Northern twist. Pebbles Fall Down On Me has a darker twang but is no less meldoic, while Look At My Life sees a twitching beat underscore a moody, almost paranoid vocal. Solid if unspectacular stuff."
Chris Long
There followed unparalleled creativity, a distinct buzz from many sources, before a several year hiatus (a split NOT caused by musical differences!) and a recent reformation.

This reformation was inspired by the tragic death of our orignial drummer and is too personal to dwell on any further (and the last thing we are looking for is sympathy).

We produced the demo ourselves and you can hear on it what we are capable of (and there's much more in our canon). We are about to line up some gigs after recent succesful forays to South Wales for the TUC festival with Gorkys Zygotic Mynci and Gloucestershire for the Real Music Campaign.

What do you want to do now?
