French ska-funk collective Percubaba shaped over the campus of Saint-Malo’s Lycee Maupertuis in 1997. Two rival groupings merged together to make the sprawling 11-member lineup, including vocalists Dup, Gaston, and Bidou, guitarist Julien “Youl” Richter, bassist Arnaud “La Fauve” Fauvel, keyboardist Nicolas Meheust, saxophonist David “Vidda” Bonomi, trumpeter Jérôme “Mr. Lul” Paitry, trombonists Rudy Loos and Ronan Simon, and percussionists Dan “Danesh” Voisin and Joël “Jo-Hell” Daventry. After 2 yrs of relentless gigging, Percubaba trim their initial four-song demo program in 1999, a calendar year afterwards founding their very own label, Foutadawa, release a a self-titled debut LP. Wish and Strup implemented in 2002, and 2 yrs afterwards Percubaba finally released a concert record documenting its much-acclaimed live established. The group’s third studio room effort, AntistatiQ, strike retail in the fall of 2006.
