Biography

Number One Yonkees started making music in 2007. Emma (19 by then) and Shaggy (21) had lived together for a year when they started making up songs about bizarre situations and random experiences, using their lyrics as an opportunity to tell people what, only back then, they wouldn’t have dared saying without the overload of euphemisms needed to introduce a new idea or just to point out the things that suck about the “so called” reality.

“We had been trying (not so hard) to fit into several office jobs, but sitting at a desk like a battery hen watching the clock, waiting for the bell to ring can’t be too good.

During the recording of Divinourm, we grew more and more interested in the connection between dream world and “reality”, ancient and modern mysteries that failed to fit in the standards of the western culture, the study and spiritual use of shamanic plants, anthropology, quantum mechanics, cognitive science, magical thinking (causal reasoning that often includes such ideas as the ability of the mind to affect the physical world ), synchronicity, quantum physics, brain chemistry, and…oh well, comedy.

The Mayan calendar and prophecies, the Egyptian pyramids, the findings in the Sumerian cities, crop circles found all around the world and other singularities, force us to consider that its rather unlikely that we are alone in such a vast universe (dah!) and that the notions of creation with which we were brought up put together a dreadful tale full of gaps and conceptual lack of sense… (and taste).
