French pioneer experimental rock band (trio) founded in the early 90's, Sister Iodine made themselves known with 2 albums recorded on the R.I.P French label 'Semantic'; ADN 115 (1994) & Pause (1997), collision between the savage energy of No wave, the game of collage tapes and exploration of their instruments inspired by concrete music, their primitive love of Noise, and a primal free rock approach. From 1992 to 97 they did some wicked concerts in company of bands like Sonic Youth, Faust, US Mapple, Circle X, Keiji Haino, Flaming Demonics, Bästard, Krackhouse, Melt Banana, Tone Rec, amongst others..
Geographically separated since 1997 Sister Iodine began to play sporadically for some scattered events like some dates w/ Sonic Youth french tour 1999, Phonotaktik Festival, Vienna/1998, PS1 Contemporary Art Center NY/1998, each members focused then more on their own new electronic projets (Discom, duos w/ Tujiko Noriko, Evil Moisture) touring around the world. And still running...
