The Inspector Cluzo
Delivering a jacked-up explosion of soulful funk-influenced classic rock intensity, THE INSPECTOR CLUZO’s fourth studio full-length, Gasconha Rocks, was recorded in full analog by the band on their old MCI mixing desk on their farm in Mont de Marsan, Gascony. The album’s diverse ten tracks capture the act’s most closely represented recording of their insanely energetic live show. A band who prides themselves on maintaining a badass style of funk without a bass player, THE INSPECTOR CLUZO formed in 2007 when their bassist never showed up for practice, therefore initiating a lifelong goal of abusing and demoting bassists the world over. Boasting a fully DIY attitude and system in every aspect, the duo — guitarist/vocalist Malcom Lacrouts and drummer/backing vocalist Phil Jourdain — has handled their own management, booking, label and promotion since inception, even amidst their massively and steadily growing fanbase over the years. Their rampant live performances have been heavily documented online, indisputably ranking them one of France’s most hard-touring bands.
