The relationship between the Limiñanas and Laurent Garnier started with a ringtone. Yes. A ringtone. Back in 2017, Lionel and Marie Limiñana were invited by Laurent Garnier to perform at the Yeah Festival. The sound of Lionel’s ringtone, the signature riff from The Kingsmen’s ‘Louie Louie’, caught Laurent’s attention and so started a new adventure for them in this sort of international psychedelia (whatever that term means).
This album tells a story, a heated road trip following Juliette and Saul, two teenage rascals straight out of a ‘60s classic movie – think ‘Breathless’ meets ‘Wild at Heart’. The location is the southern border with Spain, stifled by heat and cheap liquor. ‘De Película’ is a true concept album that’s not afraid to stray and run free, or rather “an Italian anthology film” as Lionel Limiñana puts it, a great mumbo jumbo where it takes two, humour and melancholy, to tango. Picture squalid brothels, third-rate dance clubs, ‘60s vintage caravans, smack, Roger Harth and Donald Cardwell productions, distortion and fuzz-pedal sound effects. Gilles Deleuze, Professor X and the preacher from ‘The Night of the Hunter’ are some of the characters that inhabit the world of this drama-inspired record.
‘De Pelicula’ started through a shared love for the German band Can, trance music, psychedelics, but also dancing and all those “genres of music that allow you to drift off” as Laurent Garnier puts it. The result is neither a Limiñanas techno record nor a Laurent Garnier rock album. “We worked together as if we were shaping the same bit of clay”, explains Lionel Limiñana. “Laurent’s contribution goes beyond the mere production of beats and samples. He’s much more involved in the whole production, contributing themes, additional production and his writing skills. It was a fully collaborative project.”
They had previously released the opening track for the album “Saul”. This had a cinematic album teaser feel to it.
As of now no tour dates for the USofA (nor Tijuana) have been announced yet.
