Les Concerts du 7ème Ciel is Les Disques du 7ème Ciel's big brother. A DIY organisation run by a couple of cats named after Nina Simone and Diamanda Galás, Les Concerts du 7ème Ciel invited musicians to play on their Parisian rooftop terrace every summer over the course of six years.
Simone and Diamanda welcomed dozens of artists including post-punk veterans And Also The Trees, British luminaries Mark Fry, Gareth Dickson, This Is The Kit, Pete Astor and Catchers as well as American musicians Josh T. Pearson, Theo Hakola and In Gowan Ring.
The terrace with a fantastic view of the hilltop of Montmartre also hosted gigs by established and upcoming French artists such as Holden, Jérôme Minière, Frànçois & The Atlas Mountains and Maud Lübeck.
We went as far as New Zealand and Australia and welcomed French For Rabbits and Heligoland for enchanting dream pop nights. Not bad for cats!
Two Summers brings together previously unreleased songs, new material and rarities from most of the bands that performed on the 7ème Ciel rooftop during the first two seasons.
Originally available as a CDr, it is available now as a free download.
