about

Le SuperHomard is Christophe Vaillant (guitars and keyboard), Pandora Burgess (vocals) and Olivier Vaillant (drums and bass). A distant cousin of Dorian Pimpernel, Christophe Vaillant also performs with the band Pony Taylor. A five piece band with a taste for 60s beat music, they have been dormant for sometime because of family commitments.

However, Christophe found himself at a loose end and decided to record a solo record which he began in November 2014. To begin with he played and sang all the parts himself but decided to recruit his brother and friend Pandora who sings on half of the songs on the disc. ‘I did everything at home. I record at home ... I even did the mastering at home’, Christophe explains. ‛Benoit Pithon (who also plays keyboard on stage with me) helped me mix and finalize everything. My brother Olivier played drums and Pandora Burgess sang on 4 tracks.’

Now that he had a new band, Christophe decided it needed a name and took inspiration from "Let us not get angry" by Georges Lautner. A very sixties film (1966), with Lino Ventura, Costantin Michel, Jean Lefevre and Mireille Darc. At one point in the film, the characters are in a box and it is called ‘The Great Lobster’ (le super homard).

LeSuperHomard's electronic pop naturally resonates with a classic French pop references including those of spiritual fathers of the electro-pop genre, Stereolab and Medhi Zannad, author of a French pop masterpiece, Fugu 1.
