Now was founded in 1998 with the aim to bring together adventurous multi-instrumentalists who are as much in love with analogue synthesizers and electronics as they are with guitars, percussion and traditional instruments to play experimental pop.

NOW could be described as catchy, contemporary, exotic, messy, harmonious and disharmonious 21st century pop. Now have released several albums and this is collection is a perfect introduction to their music.

‘Pursuing their offbeat, off-kilter and occasionally off-the-wall mashup of lo-fidelity experimental pop music and uptempo kosmik grooves at the fringes of undergound and overground success, NOW continue to demonstrate the tireless heart of their being is something close to an unsung Uk national treasure.’


Depuis 1998, le trio NOW invente une avant-pop aventureuse, artisanale et singulière, influencée autant par la musique globale (exotica, afrobeat, groove) que l'indie pop, les pionniers des synthés analogiques et le Kraut psyché rock allemand (Damo Suzuki en invité sur le dernier titre de l'album).

Les chansons nerveuses et dansantes de Now sont indéniablement bipolaires, oscillant entre dissonances proches de la musique atonale et fulgurances mélodiques.

Cette compilation (remasterisée par Gilles Martin, aux manettes des disques du Crépuscule, Crammed Disc, etc) est une excellente introduction à l'art de ce trio de doux-dingues.

Now : un trésor national anglais méconnu de tous ?
