Something Went Wrong is Louis Jucker’s most exhaustive work to date. Simple and direct folk and rock songs played with unaltered love for lo-fi sounds, by an artist that has become through the years a very unique and prolific figure of the swiss alternative music scene. A self-portrait in 10 songs, to face his own aging with humility, as depicted in the bittersweet home-made video “31 Years of Waiting for This”.
