NEWS 2016
January:

Happy New Year to all of you, may it be benefic, both joyous and peaceful to you.
2015 witnessed several Little Nemo concerts and 2016 should follow this path, with some surprises.
Before discovering what lies ahead of us, you can discover an inspiration from the early years of the band, the poet behind Les Vallées du Songe (on the cassette froide),
coming back from the depths of memory (thanks Gildas!).

As a souvenir, a few pictures of the concert of Little Nemo with french veterans Charles De Goal and Guerre Froide in Paris at Le Petit Bain
(all photos by Vincent K, thanks to him).











NEWS 2014
December:

The band played a tonic gig in front of a faithful audience in the crypt (nice sound indeed) of the Cantine de Belleville, with the promising TheSaintCyr.


Blue atmosphere (Photo Fred B.)

For this event, the setlist featured mainly songs from Past & Future and Sounds in the Attic, including the return of Fickleness!
This mastered performance demonstrates what a tightened team is now the band on stage.


Piano and voice to begin A une passante...a training for the final Berlin!

At the end, an unexpected Christmas bonus was delivered by Vincent, singing live on the studio version studio of Berlin,
a tribute to Stephane, who wrote the lyrics of this song and was here!

Happy end of the year to all of you while awaiting for new adventures...

September:

The interview of DoctorOlive (in french) for Radio Arverne by the webmaster of this site and his acolyte Fabrice is now listenable on a dedicated page here.
You will find rarities, a rich testimony and as a bonus for this website, the story about the writing of Cadavres Exquis.

You will still have to wait to listen to DoctorOlive's single B Side, delayed for technical reasons.

Eventually, my radio show of september 2013 introducing the album Out of the Blue is listenable here.
July:

Little Nemo's digital reissue downloadable on I Tunes, Amazon and on their Bandcamp goes on with:

- the Cadavres Exquis EP, with a bonus, the Halloween mix of That was no martian (initially only published on a promo CD)
and an exclusive bandcamp bonus, the video file of Cadavres Exquis restored and remastered
- the Bio-Logic EP, with a never-released before bonus, the forbidden mix de Bio-Logic. Olivier told us the story (in French) of this unreleased version (because of its
specific sample) in his radio interview a year ago for Haustline (issue 75 still listenable here).
- the album The World is Flat, with two bonuses, the instrumentals Solstice and April Anne, initially issued on a promo CD.

Doctor Olive & The Hoperators has just released on his own Bandcamp a new single, Swing Song Along.
This surprisingly 70's rock'n roll song, sounding like T Rex, should soon be followed by its B Side, The Fat Lady of Limburg, a Brian Eno cover.


Enjoy and have a good summer!

May:

Little Nemo's whole catalogue is currently beeing digitally reissued, downloadable on I Tunes, Amazon and on the Bandcamp page of the band,
including on this last support the files in no-loss format and exclusive bonuses.
The reissues follow the chronological order and the initial album tracklisting, the initial CD bonus are gathered on their initial or other EPs (explanations below).
All reissues post Private Life have been slightly remastered to bring the sound dynamics up to today's standards while keping the essence of the original mix.

Up to now, you can find by order of appearance:
- the mini-album Private Life
- the album Sounds in the Attic with the uncompressed video file of New Flood as a bonus
- the You again EP, gathering initial B-sides as Berlin, The Fall or the Love is a lie version initially published as a CD bonus for the album Turquoise Fields
- the City Lights EP, with for the first time on a reissue the 1990 version of Old Age (forgotten on the 2009 Infrastition reissue) and the 1991 american remix
of City Lights, initially published on the Razormaid sampler and unreleased until now on a Little Nemo record. You can also find the 1990 version of Seconds.
- the album Turquoise Fields, with as a bonus the uncompressed video file of You Again (restored and remasterd by Daniel Gouyette,
so in better version than the You Tube one).

The other reissues are to follow, with other bonuses...

Pictures Gildas

The concert in La Locomotive was a success in front of a numerous and international audience, rather enthousiastic afterwards, even if the rocky tone of the gig surprised many people...
You can watch pictures shot during the gig on the My Space touching pop page, an account on the Memories page of this site and more if you browse on You Tube...

The band plans other concerts after the summer, in France and Europe, and a new album for 2010.

On the oldies side, at the end of the radio playlist, you can now listen to an interview (in French, sorry for the non French speaking visitors) of Olivier and Vincent with Philippe and the team of the radio programm "British Connection" on Radio Val, originally broadcasted in February 1989 before the release of "Sounds in the Attic". You'll learn for instance why Vincent had to write the lyrics to Marine. A picture of this meeting can be seen on the Memories page. Thanks to Philippe and enjoy!

January:
January, the 28th:

La locomotive, Infrastition and D Side are planning, at the famous Locomotive Club, near the also famous"Moulin Rouge":







January, the 15h:

An interview of Little Nemo is published in the issue 50 of the French magazine D-Side in January. Alongside this in depth interview, this issue contains a review of the forthcoming reissues and organises a contest with 10 CDs to be winned..

The members of Little Nemo will be interviewed live on the parisian radio station Aligre FM, in the "Coma Electrique" programm on Friday, the 13th of February, from 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM (French hour).

The program is listenable live the station's site and will then be listenable in streaming or podcastable for 15 days, at the following links:
http://coma.electrique.free.fr (the radio programm) and http://www.aligrefm.org (the radio station).

Let's have a thought for Patrick Mac Goohan, who passed away a few days ago.
He had created the TV serial "The Prisonner" and played the main character. This serial has been influential for many children and has inspired Little Nemo the song "Be seeing you" (listenable on top of the radio playlist radio and to read about on the references page)

January, the 10th:

Hello to you all, I wish you a happy new year. Thanks again for your faithfulness!

2009 will see the dreams of 2008 to become true!

Infrastition will reissue a Little Nemo anthology in two double-CDs, remastered with leafleats loaded with rare and unreleased pictures and documents! It was worth the wait!

As an exclusive, enjoy on this site the "planets" sleeves chosen by the band for each of this two CDs.

The first volume will gather the first official demo tape "Past and Future" (for the first time on digital support!), "Sounds in the attic", "Private Life" and "Berlin", B-side of the "New flood" single as wall as the "Seconds" version later recorded for the "Out of nowhere" sampler as bonuses.






The albums "Turquoise Fields" and "The world is flat", the "Cadavres exquis" and "Bio logic" EPs, and as bonuses, "City lights" of the "13" sampler (both short and long version) and two rare tracks once published on the limited edition single "Au milieu du Ciel" will make their way on the 2nd volume.

Sorry for the hardcore fans, but the first unreleased demos won't be published, the band didn't wish them to appear. Anyway, you can listen to the ones on the radio and on My Space touching pop.

Speaking about this, the zealous Zildas, sorry, Gildas, has created on Facebook a page dedicated to the band, that you can watch even if you're not registered on this network. There, you will find the videoclips, some unreleased pictures and will enjoy the opportunity to send him a message.

A gig in Paris will celebrate the event and we can even think dream of a new album...

To be followed...
