COUP d'ETAT
Off-Off-Key Commando
"COUP d'ETAT is leading a new assault on academic composition."
Pavel Dibord, Music Calendar, San Francisco

"Armed with noise, trans-spontaneity, and ultra-radical improvisational methods, COUP d'ETAT is the vanguard of sonic-attack in the iceage of post-industrial hibernation."
Judith Prowles, Downtown, New York

COUP d'ETAT 's threatening takeover of new music is the result of careful planning and boldfaced courage, conducted by professional neoist Monty Cantsin (voice,megaphone), and co-conspirators Brian Meagher(sampling and keybord) of Phycus, Krista Goddess(scrapmetal) of the late HFM, and ex-Nitroglycerine members Magali Babin(guitar) and Christel Pierron (bass). Their first and yet unpublished album "FINAL FANFARE" is the result of a hyper-intensive recording sessions at Lunatik Asylum Studio, sept/oct 1991, in Montreal.
"After the crises peace will come, dark and desolate peace, not one thing moving, not one thing growing, not one thing living, dead will bury the dead to the increasing sound of desolation endlessly playing on giant speakers hanging on angel hair from the broken sky"
Coup d'Etat, Final Fanfare

MONTY CANTSIN?
Most Recently

AMEN.
The past is gone, the future is doubtful, the present is shaky, however, in spite of all, the question remains the same:

WHAT TIME IS IT?
One-time a legendary singer-poet in Hungary, later subway musician in exile in Paris, afterwards extraterrestrial open-pop-star conspirator in North America, more recently hard-art singer and self-appointed leader of the people of the Lower East Side, Istvan Kantor aka Monty Cantsin? aka AMEN. spent almost two decades searching for the answer. His work has always been inciting controversial, strong public reactions and it has been described by the media and critics as rebellious, conspiratorial, anti-authoritarian, mischievous, criminal, as well as entertaining, musically innovative, highly experimental, ironic and absurd. He has been founder-member of many bands, from among them we mention here spontaneous music orchestra Drazse Express(1968-72) and radical-folk trio Kantor Inform(1974-76) in Budapest, anti-music ensemble Monty Cantsin's ISM b.band(1978-79) in Portland,Oregon, USA, psicho-industrial pop-group First Aid Brigade(1983-85) in Montreal, scrapmetal band Hungarian Folk Music(1986-89) in New York City. Despite this intensive group activity Cantsin/Kantor became best known for his solo works. His notoriety as cultural saboteur, media manipulator, founder and spokesman of NEOISM?! is based largely on his severely dramatic, conflicting, confusing, troublesome performances and intellectually assaultive videos. For Kantor/Cantsin/Amen. life is a continuous sonic drama and rhythmic flight.

IT'S ALWAYS SIX O'CLOCK! AMEN.
