The music of Cinema Du Lyon was described in Luton's Book of Moules as "a fabulous selection of soundtracks, irresistable grooves, transitions,and aural oddities disturbing and exquisite, which delight the eardrums, excite the passions and bewilder."
Du Lyon premiered in the UK at the Hanbury Ballroom, Brighton, Easter
2004, when an astouded gigging public watched a thirty minute audio-visual
montage, including performance and projections, love poetry read in French
by two women in red and black macs. Two male members of the group, apparently
oblivious to the audience smoked Gauloises and read Le Monde, played cards,
drank gin and tonic. A young girl with them dressed in pink took flash
photographs of the audience and of the women posing with them, the entire
cast finally leaving the stage before the last song was finished, beating
the audience to the bar and awarding themselves chocolates and champagne
as a celebration.
