Toog - French-born (from Mulhouse) artist Toog is a musician, a poet, a blogger and a director. He started his musical career in 1999 when he met the widely venerated scottish singer/songwriter Momus. They went on an extensive tour together, playing almost 150 shows. Toog sounds like a Casio-damaged karaoke recital by a Frenchman who learned English two weeks ago with occasional prog rock neoclassical flourishes. The lyrics are rarely less than charming and occasionally betray a demented genius at work. Recommended by those who like music as diverse as Syd Barrett or the Magnetic Fields.
