The Diabolique siblings were born in France but taken from each other at an early age. They grew up and lived separately around the world, but in 2004 Didier, Dominique, Jean-Luc, and Solange reunited in North Carolina to make music that they send out into the world with the hope that it will reach their missing sister and the band's namesake: Veronique Diabolique. “Painted up and feeling down, VD temper high-concept, gothy indulgence with chicly low-rent, dirty song craft. Sure, they cite dead philosophers, filmmakers, and long-lost sisters as influences, but the band's songs are never excessively brainy or overcooked, their guitars are reeled in, and their vocals are sexily in check.” – Independent Weekly The Wigg Report are Christine Fantini, Stephen Mullaney and Ben Riseling. Armed with a guitar, the remains of a drum set and a saxophone The Wigg Report has been setting up on street corners, in clubs and anywhere that lets them play. Their guerrilla approach to playing has started to earn them recognition in their small town of Durham, North Carolina. Started as a side project, The Wigg Report has become the main focus for Fantini and Mullaney. They constantly practice and record in the tiny laundry room of their house in Durham. This is where their first self-titled release was spawned and also where their once-neighbor, Ben Riseling, must have heard them and started stalking them. This unavoidable collaboration has led not only to innovative uses of laundry equipment as acoustic devices but also to their first full length album, Seltzer.
