A hybrid between Leonard Cohen's late night confessions and Kate Bush's etherea,
Mercymachine was formed in 1994 by vocalists/guitarists Jazno Francoeur and Susanne Turner,
along with string virtuosos Paul Fleury on cello and Dan Cermeno on upright bass.
Over the years, the lineup has included Christian Mildh, Cooper Ladnier, Chris Nobling,
and soundtrack impresario, Kays Al-Atrakchi.
Their self-titled debut CD, Mercymachine, was released in 1997 and they
spent the next few years working on In Your Bed a two-CD orchestral concept
album about unrequited love and sexual politics. In 2003, an assortment of prominent
electronica artists remixed In Your Bed with styles ranging from dirty techno
to classic Orlando breakbeat.
2005 saw the release of The Devil I Know, a stripped-down project recorded
with producer/engineer John Wagner.
The Devil I Know: The Remixes will be released this year and features Q
Burns, Abstract Message, Dee Base, Antena, Gabo, Jeff Vylonis, DJ Yadis,
Pimpdaddy Nash, and Gold Buddha.
