Godspeed You Black Emperor!

Godspeed You Black Emperor!Godspeed You Black Emperor! is a Montreal collective creating extended works built around drone, repetition and crescendo on a range of instruments including brass, strings, guitar and multiple percussionists. Their 'songs' often include spoken word passages carrying a political message. Theirs is a very artistic vision, and their outstanding live show has gained them a loyal international following - their live show is very impressive with projections and improvised passages, and their rare tours sell out very quickly. Their 'F#A#(Infinity)' album was released in 1998. Their ambitious double-album, 'Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven' was released in 2000. 'Yanqui U.X.O.' followed in 2002. They recorded a Peel Session at Maida Vale in 1999.
