Biography

“Winners of runs, losers in love” is the leitmotiv of Housse de Racket. It is first and foremost a smart, sport concept, a musical match between two childhood friends devoted to love and sport. Not sufficiently heavy weight to become high-level sportsmen, Pierre and Victor opted for high flying pop music.

Goodbye loneliness and heartache, hello polos, rackets and guitars - because rackets are also instruments with strings.

Flashmatchs

An encounter which took place in the mid-90s, in the orchestra of the local Chaville conservatoire , where a simple Pearl Jam T-shirt worn by one attracts the eye of the other. Two teenagers who had always snubbed each other started up a conversation about Eddie Vedder and Kurt Cobain… The beginning of a love story between two best friends– and like all greatest stories it started with a T-shirt.

A few years later, after the french touch , Pierre and Victor woke up with a hangover and decided they had something to announce: “let’s racket the house”. They have the name… to racket the house becomes Housse de Racket: the duo has found its way, its identity, its banner, its ideal of life… its fate. Game, set and match!

The story of Melody Nelson Monfort
Victor and Pierre start working on a crazy rock opera project – a concept which could be to the MP3 generation what Stevie Wonder, the Beatles or the soundtrack of Phantom Of the Paradise were to our parents. Pure cult! The pitch: Vico Vix and Repi Rep, two tennis superstars are rich, beautiful, young and famous.
