Manitoba Music at MIDEM 2012 presents Les Jupes

1) Who are you and where are you from?

Les Jupes, we are from Winnipeg Manitoba, Canada

2) Please tell us a little about your latest release

Modern Myths is our debut album released via Head in the Sand in North
America in January 2011 recorded and produced by Marcus Paquin (who
co-recorded Arcade Fire's "The Suburbs"). It was then released in
Germany/Austria/Switzerland in September by The Instrument Village.

3) What is the most memorable show you have played?

Playing Cologne with Handsome Furs. It was an amazing show, a smaller
club packed shoulder to shoulder. The audience gave off such amazing energy,
it was undeniable.

4) What can we expect from your show?

Mature and taught songs and a equally mature and taught performance
with spontaneous bursts of psychedelic energy.

5) What plans do you have for the coming year?

In 2012 we will be touring Germany, Canada and the United States. We
will be performing at festivals such as SXSW and M'era Luna
Festival. Also, we have started working on new songs that will
eventually become our sophomore album.

6) Finally-one song by a Canadian artists you wish you had written.

Oh Dead Life - Dog Day
