OCD033 : Baby Fire / Gold

Cover art by Alice Smith

OCD033 : Baby Fire / Gold

Diabolita (songwriter, guitar, loops, vocals & theremin) started Baby Fire as a solo project. 
After having played as a duo with Cha or Alinovsky (both on drums) for a few years, she met  
in the summer of 2015, Isabel Rocher (drums & backing vocals) & Gaby Séguin (bass, loops & backing vocals) who since then form the new rhythm section and are responsible for many song arrangements on the new record.
Gold, Baby Fire’s third album (see OCD018 The Red Robe, second album), was produced, mixed and mastered by Pierre Vervloesem (dEUS, Madensuyu, Flat Earth Society, etc.) who also added guitars and mellotron on some titles, and recorded at Studio Six in Brussels by Gaethan Dehoux.
Baby Fire's influences are eclectic. Diabolita - who is also a member of von Stroheim - is a fan of the Riotgrrrl movement and of bands such as Swans, Chelsea Wolfe, The God Machine and 16 Horsepower.
Isabel and Gaby are fans of alternative rock as well as jazz.
The CD sleeve was designed by British artist Alice Smith.
Diabolita (aka Dominique Van Cappellen-Waldock) has collaborated on a full album with Eugene Robinson under the name Las Vegas (see OCD024). She also worked with Doug Scharin (Codeine, June of 44...) and Joe Goldring (Swans, Enablers...). She is currently working on a new project called HVEDA with ALWNTR from belgian sludge band OMSQ.
