Biography

Jean-Louis Costes is a noise musician. He was once the husband of Lisa Crystal Carver, and he helped write the backing noise-opera music of the Suckdog Circus, and was also a performer in Suckdog, along with Carver, Dame Darcy, Coz the Shroom and others. Costes has released many albums, including Hung by the Dick from Nihilist Records. Costes has been described as the French version of GG Allin.

Some of his albums have been banned in his native country of France for their obscenity.

In 2004, he performed the Holy Virgin Cult show across the United States, scaring audiences away with a barrage of flung feces, urine, tortured screaming, public sex and religious flagellation.

    nah he's dummed down his performance a lot, kinda pussied out. Eating shit and shitting on people and throwing shit is where it's at.

    I saw him a few years ago too. I don't think I've ever actually been afraid at a show before this...

    I went to a show with the understanding that this guy is the french gg allin and I was not disappointed. The only bummer was that he was constipated and couldn't shit on stage.

    This artist is wrongly associated with artists connected with the Costes series, mixed by Stephane Pompougnac. These albums are about soothing music, quite the opposite of the 'noise' genre.
