LP version. Krishna Goineau was born in Sri Lanka in 1963. He spent his youth in the 1970s in Barcelona, where he met Javier Hernando in 1978 to found the post-punk group Xeerox. In 1981 Goinau moved to Düsseldorf, where he met Christo Haas and Beate Bartel. He became the singer of the joint project Liaisons Dangereuses and lent his unmistakable voice to the band's big hit ("Los Niños Del Parque"). At the end of the 1980s Krishna Goineau lived in Brussels and became the singer and keyboardist of the groups Metropakt and Veldorome, together with Jodie Guber. Meanwhile, Goineau lives very secluded in the south of France and concentrates mainly on his painting. In 2007-2008, he worked at home with analog synthesizers on a series of songs that to this day have never been released. Electronic cut-ups and haunting compositions that sound as contemporary as they are detached from any zeitgeist. Bureau B make a selection of these lost recordings available with this collection I Need A Slow.

Krishna Goineau (February 2022): "... My first influence was punk; in attitude and in music with Xeerox/Javier Hernando & Co at Barcelona where we lived at the time. It was in 1978 just after Franco's regime. Later on in Düsseldorf I met Chrislo Haas (former DAF-member) and Beate Bartel (founding member of Einstürzende Neubauten and of Mania D.) who recorded several tapes under the moniker CHBB, which later turned to be Liaisons Dangereuses. The crystallization of us as a trio was strange and remarkable and comet fast. I remember clearly the amazing approach to sound in Conny Plank's studio. Since that point my interest switched from image to sound, infinite intelligence without frontiers. After working for a long time with a Tascam 4-track-tape-recorder I later, in Brussels around 1987, discovered Atari, Steinberg, and synth software while working with Jordi Guber (Lineas Aereas, Velodrome) which was a new big experience. All these years were simply music and painting. When I lived in France, I studied at the Narbonne Conservatory in the jazz section and learned the guitar; it's system, spirit, knowledge, fluency and the pleasure in playing a real acoustic instrument. I was also working and recording with Victor Sol (Lars Müller) in Barcelona on a project we had together from 1998 . . . All recordings on this album were made in the south of France (au bord de la mer) during the years 2007-2008. Home works with analog synths and a home computer system. Songwriting and recordings all by myself..."
