We are pleased to announce Fly Pan Am will be in-studio before their Los Angeles show with Do Make Say Think. We'll follow the interview with an hour of Fly Pan Am's music.
fly pan am is a young montréal-based instrumental rock quartet whose ear for melody, honed in large part through obsessive exposure to the French pop tradition, is combined with a strong forward-looking experimentalism, driven by an intransigent faith in the unfulfilled possibilities of minimalism and musique concrète in rock composition. fly pan am address and engage a tradition of art-punk that encompasses VU, talking heads & sonic youth, maintaining an exuberant innocence while consciously disavowing primitivist elements in favour of structural refinement .
roger, one of the group's two guitarists, was recruited by godspeed you black emperor! in the summer of 1998, but fly pan am remains his primary project. j.s., the group's bassist, also played in the now-defunct montréal hardcore band wisigoth. the band 's other members include jonathan on guitar and felix on drums. all members contribute to the tape-based element of the music.
