Welcome to the Douche Froide blog


Douche Froide is an association created officially in 2002 with the release of its first fanzine. Our interests rely mainly on music, literature, graphic arts and cinema. We began by producing fanzines and we continue working on books, all accompanied with a CD, such as Aux Limites du Son (La Volte, 2006), or on CD-objects like the compilation Icy Breath on Burning Flesh (2010). We have worked with many bands, writers and graphic designers for these releases. Since 2003, Douche Froide is a radio show. You can listen to it live on Canal Sud on Mondays every fortnight from 10 pm to 1 o'clock in the morning : http://www.canalsud.net/ (go to the broadcasting section). The shows are made of interviews, musical readings, live sessions, reviews, mixes, news, in a weird, dark, evocative and melancholy atmosphere close to the post-industrial and minimalist experimental music styles. Douche Froide also organizes events, concerts, meetings, festivals. The aim of this blog is to give you access to our archives. Over the years, we have met many important artists and bands. Here, you will have the possibility to listen to all these wonderful moments we had, talking with them and receiving them in our radio show studios.
Important note : We have lost the access to our previous blog http://dfroide.blogspot.com. So here is the only official blog of Douche Froide. Contact : achud.malax@gmail.com
Other important note : This blog is here for archive and information. If you are an artist or label and you do not want to appear in our programmes, please tell us.
