ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Eighteen years since we last heard Marc Dixon’s deep voice echoing his electric wandering stories in the Belgium nights. After about a hundred concerts with the Junkies, the Menteurs and a few singles produced by Mirwais (Taxi Girl, Madonna) in the 80’s, he is back today with MALEDIXON, more of a rebirth album than a coming back, built step by step with his accomplice Lele (Pierre Lebecque) and the six strings of French guitarist Goulven Hamel (Santa Cruz, Bruno Green, Philippe Pascal, Blue Train Choir…). Marc Dixon lets his bilingual story-telling drifting with the sound of abrasive guitars on rough digital foundations questioning about solitude, love and sex in search of an improbable Zen balance. The tense rhythmic, the accepted urge and sensuality slide here on the skin like a blunt caress to invent the Dixon Jive, an odd dance for the night and beat up souls.
Preferring the “fever” than a “sub cellophane” life, Marc Dixon has deliberately chosen to arouse his old devils. Looking them in the eyes, he resuscitates them to subdue them with an evident pleasure and a blessed distance.

Nourished on the creative fury of Punk and the instinctive freedom of Rock ‘N Roll (in 1977 he started one of the first punk fanzines: Teenage Head), he bumped into a black and white picture of Otto Preminger in 1979 and reinvented himself as Marc Dixon to take hold the thread of his artistic tale. After a long ride trough the effervescence of independent radios, he entered the young channel Canal+ in Belgium as a musical consultant before creating the musical broadcast Fast Forward. Those weekly 26 minutes will mark durably the audiovisual landscape, while Marc is co-founding Karma Production, realising and producing a series of documentaries (Arno, Comme Les Hommes; Susana baca, Memoria Viva; Stephan Eicher, Taxi Europa…), live captures (Iggy Pop Live at Avenue B, Massive Attack, Faithless, Placebo, Girls in Hawaii, Ghinzu…) or music videos (Sharko, My Little Cheap Dictaphone, Jeronimo, Marie Warnant…). Also a photographer, this man of image immersed in music has found again his first love to write his own ideal sound track to his electric and harmful roving and thus share with us the complexity and richness of his world.

Press

“Marc Dixon is back with MaleDixon which is a pure rock & roll BeneDixon. Dixon’s voice, as a good aging wine, took shape in many shades of bass tones…to let us be carried away in his world, sometimes in French, sometimes in English.”
“…At the age of 48, Dixon releases his first album sang both in English and French bursting out his taste of guitar distortion (Iggy Pop way), his low voice and his French accent. The Belgium version of The Beautiful Loser.” Sud Presse
« …It would be sacrilege not to mention French guitarist Goulven Hamel (who plays a mixed style of American blues-rock and alternative) whose omnipresent guitar seems to provoke Marc’s voice continually. If you like rock & roll, if you like deep voice, if you like poetry… then I am sure you will love MALEDIXON.”
“…He is back with a dark and ironic album nonchalantly whispering his disenchanted lyrics. Discordant and abrasive songs dominated by a heroic and wild guitar.” BD in Télémoustique
“ (…) Of course Marc Dixon’s sometimes rather naughty sense of humour catches attention during the songs in French: “On your knees in front of me Alleluia you pray, on your knees behind that’s the way you like it” (On Your Knees) or “In front you shake your little behind, in little motions backward and forward, come and cuddle up to me, there’s only one way to dance the Dixon Jive” (Dixon Jive, sort of narcissistic ode sang after Serge Gainsbourg in the late 60’s, like “Ford Mustang” but on a distinctly more steady rhythm.) It’s worthy noting an excellent cover of the Peggy Lee’s standard “Fever”, highly outshining the numerous imitations of those last years, especially Madonna’s; or for instance “Alone” which lyrics are said on a gloomy background sound. In the end, Marc Dixon released an album at his image which, following his career deserves that we linger over it, to begin with the title…” Olivier Wouter in Musicinbelgium.net
“Right from the start MALEDIXON takes us into the characteristic world of his author, a rather obscure world which tends to become sensual and poetic above all.”
“… MALEDIXON is very likely to touch a certain audience… Passionately fond of night trips, of tense riffs with warm sounds, of rainy highways, it will obviously find here a respectable album and an honest travelling companion.” Fabian Dacci in Musiczine.net
« … Fever kills the night-birds souls in such a beautiful way. » Rif Raf
“Excellent rock, up to its high references.” Rocknfrance.com
“Dark alternative/underground rock sang in a deep narrative voice along with hypnotic guitar riffs. His dark version of Fever, in rhythm with our finger snapping is fine art.” Concerts-review.overblog.com

José Grana

BénéDixon rock & rollienne
Marc Dixon est de retour avec cette MaléDixon qui est belle et bien une BénéDixon rock & rollienne. Avant tout je dois dire que la voix de Dixon comme les bons vins avec l’âge a pris du corps et beaucoup de teintes dans les graves … et cette voix nous emporte dans son univers tantôt en français tantôt en anglais.
L’album est rempli d’atmosphères : lourdes, sombres et stridentes « Are you happy now », «Seul », « Gardien » dignes du maître Bashung mais aussi le très joyeux et dansant « Je danse dans la foule », « Foul » puis les sensuels « Fever » et « Dixon jive ».La poésie urbaine est bien présente « Sous cellofan » avec un magnifique et puissant riff de guitare. « A genoux » au refrain clin d’œil aux Rolling Stones.
Ce serait un sacrilège si je ne parlais pas du guitariste Goulven Hamel (qui possède un style à la fois classique blues-rock américain et alternatif) sa guitare est omniprésente comme si elle cherchait sans cesse le duel avec la voix de Marc.
Si vous aimez le rock & roll, si vous aimez les voix graves et profondes, si vous aimez la poésie… je suis sûr que vous aimerez MaléDixon.
