Benoît Jacques draws, engraves, sculpts, builds and makes objects, books. How can he be best described? Comic books author, illustrator, artist? Creator? Questions that can be put to him about his operating on the fringes of the publishing world, his drawing, his printed works, the wide range of his interests that cover an incredible diversity of forms from his books, to his numerous exhibitions of drawings and sculpture – not to be missed!

Ladies and gentlemen, look out, hide yourselves in the garage, we’re turning up the volume : the Staches are on the loose. They play loud and fast. Very loud. Very fast. DIY fans (they design their own album sleeves), the rock foursome – two blokes, two girls, a maximum lo-fi potential – ride the red light and onto the swiss autobahn, fullspeed into the tunnel of sound and out, hellbent for Strasbourg, the gas pedal and the volume turned up to max on the old car radio. The Staches cruise on to Central Vapeur where Panimix has invited them, but are bombing along so fast that they nearly miss the turn off and miss the warm up band (still a secret). But what’s with the tearing about like that? Have they swallowed a Riot grrrl ? The Staches : lake Geneva is on fire !+ Baked Beans (Garage / Rouen)
