He’s also the label owner of “Mosaique Records” and the regular DJ, resident and curator of Mosaique club.
The Bleak Engineers make a melancholic wave with live guitars and other instruments such as vintage drum machines and synthesizers of the 70-80s. Wave is the new wave !

If you think about it, David Lynch should make a movie about Messer Chups: Ironic-kinda-not-really-maybe (like all 1950's B movies) St. Petersburg surf band that incorporates a wide range of styles that makes no sense on paper, but sounds dreamy when when executed on instruments. I think Angelo Badalamenti would be very proud to hear this version of his Twin Peaks masterpiece! Damn good black coffee and cherry pie for all! brantly
