Since their first CD, "Los Locos", SLANG have already made a great name for themselves. With each concert, their music and their audience grow.

With "Save the chilis", they pursue their relentless drive and add a much wider range of sounds to their own, very personal -sound-. This is purely their own, and has created its own genre, -REC-, (the French acronym for Ethno-Coltranian Rock), an exquisite blend of rock, ethnic music and jazz (particularly the music of John Coltrane).

The pieces on the CD voyage in all directions, ranging from the funk on -Small Steps- to Arab music on -Bazar-. There is also an allusion to Arno on -Oude Fox- (François Garny was for a long time Arno's bass player). And the beautiful -La trilogie d'Apu- has strong Indian influences.-Hombre Feli- takes us into South-American dance steps, while the rock element is present on several pieces, with Jimi Hendrix's shadow hovering over most, but particularly over -Own Wings-.

One of the big surprises in relation to their first CD is that Slang sing on several pieces, and this is certainly going to open up a few new doors ... With "Save the chilis", Slang pushes out the frontiers of REC - wider, deeper and defintely hotter !
