“Avec pas d’casque, c’est comme une belle fille mal habillée” … Avec pas d’casque is like a beautiful unkempt girl. These are approximately the words used by columnist Catherine Perrin to define the music of the band’s third album, released in the Fall of 2008 and entitled “Dans la nature jusqu’au cou”. Offering a combination of bare folk/country music enhanced by colorful and rich verbal imagery, “Avec pas d’casque” favors a small-scale, home-made approach when it comes down to recording. In 2006, APDC took away the Quebec City Summer Festival’s Miroir for Best Canadian Artist and in 2009, the band harvested 2 nominations at the Gala de l’ADISQ, one of which in the Author-Compositor of the Year’s category. The band is now working on their next album which is to be released in the fall of 2011.
