Product Notes

Montreal native Martin Saz (a.k.a. Mon Electric Bijou) creates a guitar driven alt-country/rock sound quite obviously inspired by the likes of The Flying Burrito Brothers, Neu! & Phil Spector. MEB's debut album, Songs Made From Plastic on which Saz played most of the instruments, was released independently in the summer of 2002. Two years later, Saz teamed up with Jason Sanchez (drums) & Martin Guilbo (bass) to record the garage/rock album, If Blood Could Speak (2004, Matchbox Recordings). Backstabber Blues is Mon Electric Bijou's fourth album and the follow-up to the unfettered, unpolished and critically acclaimed Bullets In The Penguin (2006, Roast Records). This time around, Saz opted for a more glossy production without completely setting aside the lo-fi approach that helped define MEB's signature sound. He also teamed up with Christian Aubin (guitar) and Martin Robillard (bass), with whom he worked closely on the previous album, to sugarcoat the blue mood and subject matter of the album. The mammoth plateaus of huge, melodic, yet tightly controlled riffage brings a new heaviness to MEB's sound - a weight that nicely complements the frail sincerity of Saz' vocals. Backstabber Blues is, without a doubt, Mon Electric Bijou's most personal and complete album to date. - Merle Blake, Montreal, 2008.
