The group occurred on November 27th, 2002 in Bataclan in Paris, with Merzhin. The room was performed well, approximately 1200 persons. We were very well welcomed, the technical team of the place allowed us to give a concert in good conditions (Thanks to them). We had chosen the less festive titles than usually, exit "Waltz" and "Polka", replaced by "Si la ville" and "A tous les hommes". The public was attentive and warm, and we think of having given one of our best concerts since the arrival of Manu. On November 18th, 2002 Red Cardell live acoustics + interview on the emission of France Inter: "Sous les étoiles exactement" of Serge Levaillant (2 hours at 3 am).
The group occurred on scene in Cyber Fest-noz to Quimper on November 2nd, 2002 (concert diffused in LIVE on the site www.antourtan.org). The concert took place well, there were 3500 persons in the room, and approximately 84 000 visits on the site of Antourtan which broadcast all over the world the concert on its site. The technical means were very important. The concert was filmed with the technical means of France 3, which prepares a summary of 26 minutes on the evening. We played a directory based on the dance, Circassian Circle for "I closed my eyes", Gavotte for "Chow", "Chanteur de primes" etc., people danced. Manu has it have a good laugh feasible because it has the impression to be on one trampoline. He will talk again you of it.
The next album takes shape. Since November 4th, 2002, we repeat in the premises of the MJC of Douarnenez. We have already well advanced on 8 titles. Some were already written for two years, the words are ready, it is now necessary to work on the way of proceeding in studio. We work thus especially on the structure of the song, and so to record most possible parts for three. The electro opens numerous doors to the group, the subjects have an oriental colour, when to texts they approach subjects as the picture of Delacroix: "La Liberté guidant le peuple" discovery of the eroticism in our books of history, the Bolshevik chips, the pubs tobacco bingo newspapers, the noise rises from boots, or the influence Arthurienne of these last years in the financial imagination: "twist' n dollars "...
On November 5th, 2002, Patric Kiffer and Patrice Marzin begin the remix of titles not used on the LIVE "La Scène". (See newof the summer). The disc will totally be électro. There will be certainly sound recordings if it justifies itself. It is possible that new fragments arise from this company. The idea seduces us by its originality and the opening that she can bring us. We had already approached the remix on "Douleur" Stephan Kramer had remixed "La Fuite" (we had taken out a CD Rom in 1997, which contained two titles remixed audios, this one and " We' ve got to be alone ", he was pressed only 500 copies) and Luc a remix indeed barge of " One for the rope ". On the other hand we have never taken out it.
Fool, Quiberon on October 10th, 2002. We gave a long concert about three hours, what had not arrived at us for a long time, the festivals and the trays allowing us one hour at the thirty past one o'clock of performance. We had repeated the previous days and decided to play two new titles: "Les Chiens" and "Liberté". It is for us a way of grinding the songs which we get ready to record on an album the exit of which is foreseen in the second half of the year 2003.

The disc will be mixed from in the middle of October 2002 in the studio the Music hall to Quimper by Patrice Marzin and Patric Kiffer.

The general concept of the set is to use at most the possibilities of the recording in multitracks, three days and in the same place. The idea of the album Live was born this summer with the arrival of the new drummer Manu Masko, arrived who is translated by new classifications which led Red CARDELL to envisage a recording in public. It is also a way to present the work of Red CARDELL for several months, Jean-Michel already uses a numeric accordion which pilots keyboards, Manu uses, he, samples as well as electronic pads on which he interprets notes. It opens new horizons to the group.
We prepare at present the exit(release) of the fifth album, his name is "La Scène" and will be in tubs on Saturday, April 13th, 2002. There are 11 titles on 27 interpreted in concert 17, 18, and in January 19th, 2002 in "La Tête Raide" in Brest. Patric Kiffer and Patrice Marzin mixed these titles in the studios of the music hall to Quimper. The disc is produced by ourselves and we also assure the promotion. Coop Breizh, distributor to Spézet in centre Brittany, integrates us nevertheless on a new label which he has just created, "Avel Ouest". He has 700 selling points through France. It is thus a project piloted by the group and we expect from your part of the suggestions to translate better the step which is our from now on ten years old.
