Beast:  “Out of Control”

beast1Beast is an experimental union between the powerful and sensual voice of Beatrice Bonifassi and the dirty, in your face, beats of composer and drummer Jean-Phi Goncalves, both as Betty and Jean-Phi. After having wonderfully performed on the 2004 Oscar Winner Sound Track – The Triplettes de Belleville – Betty has joined since then her voice and her songwriter skills to Dj Champion to create, once again, a major impact on the local, national and international music industry. Betty’s uniquely textured voice charmed and inspired Jean-Phi, leader of Montreal’s new sensation band, Plaster. For his part, Jean-Phi has made eclecticism his own speciality. Lead drummer and original electro-jazz composer, he has taken part to many projects.  Read the review….

  1. Heard the K-Os song a few weeks ago….can’t wait for the album, and for him to come back to Kingston. I heard Beast last Friday on CBC. They rocked!

    I missed Beast live on CBC/Q, but I did download the podcast late saturday night. Fantastic stuff.

    All of these artists owe a lot to the CANCON of the 70s and 80s – quibble if you like about the place of Loverboy or Trooper, but if weren’t for the sometimes horrible Canadian rock I can’t imagine that we would have the confidence to produce bands like Beast or Controller Controller.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron'scruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. C.S. Lewis
