Vialka review from wayside music
''Fourth (?) release by the terrific French duo of Eric Boros (guitar and voice) and Marylise Frechevile (drums and voice). I have had the great pleasure of seeing them twice, and they amazed me with their stupendously tight and humorous music and stage antics. I don't want to ignore Eric's contributions - he's a great player - but Marylise is the star of the show. She's a fucking great drummer in the Guigou Chenevier style and she'll suddenly leap up from behind the kit and do a little dance while continuing to sing with Eric backing her up before she leaps back behind the kit!! This new one has some added instrumentation and good 'behind the scenes' work from Bob Drake. Highly recommmended - and SEE THEM if you can (they tour constantly).''
