Bortek invented Jad Wio at the dawn of the eighties. From a projected novel he retained the main character – Jad Wiolensky – whose name he abbreviated and whose mask he assumed. A first, very confidential and self produced cassette, "L'un Seul", was distributed before the group found the right balance with Kbye entering the lists: Jad Wio would be a two-headed hydra. As of the first concerts – 1983, 1984: guitars, vocals, tapes and machines – the duo established its exceptional style and stirred up batcave hordes and electric birds of all feathers. Obsessions for the bizarre and the marginal from the outset: Jad Wio couldn't be categorised. Between 1985 and 1986 three EPs were released – "The ballad of Candy Valentine", "Colours in my dreams" and "Aubade à Simbad" – which were brought together on "Cellar Dreams", an anthology of Jad Wio phase one. Were mixed, with of a touch of the cold and dark tones of yore, rock and roll fascination and oriental reminiscences. Without letting up, Jad Wio flaunted it on stages in France and singing mainly in English throughout Europe. Experiences which would inform the atmospheres and themes of the next album to come: "Contact". more @ Here
