When jazz-rock guitar ace Ian Rigillo and nu-jazz bass-hero Axel Dumont asked a reluctant Gilles Snowcat to join forces with them on the Gianax project, little did they know that they’d have to deal with some of his most unbearable ego-driven rock star antics, erratic behavior and embarrassing lack of commitment. And that was for the bright side.
In for a penny, in for a pound, the dysfunctional booze-fueled trio successfully teamed with Nepalese pop star Susant Bista and after a few months of tensions, fights and unrestricted creativity, the EP “Pass the Pill” saw the light of day.
Having been forced to cancel their long-awaited first concert due to a last minute whim from (not surprisingly) Gilles Snowcat, who all of a sudden decided he would have to be paid to rehearse, Gianax was on the verge of imploding and call it quits, when the good news broke on a clear morning: Gianax was featured on the prestigious KR-Magazine, the monthly bible for home-studio freaks and pros of the geekest side of music business.
It’s Ian Rigillo’s piece “Jungle Jazzin” that had been chosen to be included on KR Mag’s CD, “Découvertes 2016”.
Will this welcome sign of success convince Snowcat to stop fucking up the band’s future? Why don’t you make your own opinion by ordering your copy of KR Mag here?
