Les Aus was meaning that everything was valid already. Any element could interact with the rest as it happened in fact. Les Aus included in their repertory acoustic guitars, contact microphones, damaged instruments, electronic modified instruments, pieces found in the garbage, cassette tapes, radios… and their style became much more sincere. 100% sincerity. The music of Les Aus is fed by accidentalism in every moment and the group gets to release some tracks in compilations, CD-Rs and cassettes before January 2006, when "Hanna Hanne", their first long play under the name of Les Aus, is released. The disc was edited by their own label (www.ozonokids.com) and by the American Simple Social Graces label (www.simplesocialgraces.com) and was followed by a long American tour together with two other groups, ‘Ted Leo and The Pharmacists’ and ‘The Duke Spirit’, that brought them all over the country, performing in places such as the South by Southwest festival. On June 2007 Les Aus performed as well in the Sónar festival in Barcelona. Les Aus have already recorded the material for three Eps that will be edited by various American labels (www.gravityrec.com / www.truepanther.com) as well as European ones (www.gafferrecords.com). At the moment the group is planning a performance with Lydia Lynch in the role as second guitar.
