Deja Voodoo !

Somewhere in the late 80's, there was a band called Deja Voodoo. I was a huge fan of their sludgeabilly swamp music. Every time they played in Montreal, I was there. They were Gerard Van Herk and Tony Dewald and played a very stripped down type of rockabilly.They dressed very simply; short hair, suits and bow ties or maybe a plastic spider instead of a tie ? At some point Van Herk decided to publish a comic book with short stories about music. When I heard about it I jumped on the opportunity. That was my first "comic book".
Here's a Youtube where you can hear them play.
They were my favorite band from my arrival in Montreal at 17 up to when they stopped playing in the very early 90s, so that little thing is my tribute to them for the fun they gave me and for publishing me.
Eventually, i'll put a scan of the cover of this comic.They have a MySpace page here.

it would be great if you could scan the comic. I'm a fan of the band from spain and their stuff is almost impossible to find here... I'm also looking for a videoclip they made.

I do have that comic in a box somewhere in my appartment...I'll see if I can find it but I wont scan more than the cover. The artwork in there is not really mine, except my few pages.But maybe I could list the content and the names of the artists. A few of them where also musicians.
