The Inspector Cluzo – Rockin’ The Farm

We are extremely excited to introduce all of you to Mathieu of The Inspector Cluzo as our guest on No Simple Road this week!

THE INSPECTOR CLUZO are a rock-blues guitar/drums duo formed in 2008 in Mont-de-Marsan by Laurent (Guitars, Vocals) and Mathieu (Drums). They have been playing together for more than 30 years, are multi-instrumentalists (Tenor sax for Laurent & Trumpet for Mathieu) and started music at the age of 7. Since 2008, TIC has played more than 1200 dates in more than 67 countries, in a completely self-produced way visiting festivals like Lollapalooza Chile and Brazil, Oppikopi festival (South Africa) or Fujirock (Japan), Pentaport (South Korea) but also India, China, Peru or Madagascar.

For 10 years now they are also farmers & peasants in the farm “LOU CASSE” near Mont-de-Marsan in the Landes de Gascogne.

We talk with Mathieu about:

  • Starting The Inspector Cluzo 15 years ago.
  • The blessing of losing a bass player.
  • Their first-hand experience of seeing the damaging effects of Economic Globalization and what they decided to go home and do about it.
  • How the message of the music comes directly from the richness of tending to the land.
  • What their lives look like tour for 6months of the year around the world and spending the other half of the year running a family farm.
  • How they learned regenerative farming practices from a disappearing generation and revitalized a community.
  • How and where they recorded the album ‘HORIZON’.
  • Some of the challenges they have faced and overcome learning to farm.
  • What their experiences have been like playing music in places like Madagascar and Asia.

… and much more!
