Permanent Fatal Error (PFE) is a project by Olivier Manchion, Ulan Bator founder member,[1] and long time Faust collaborator.[2] PFE first album is entitled Law Speed and was released in 2004 by Wallace Records,[3] Klangbad [4] -the label of Faust core member Hans-Joachim Irmler - and Ruminance.[5] The musician defines this music as "deaf-blues". The project turns into solo (Santarcangelo festival,[6] London Scala[7]) or duo performances with Giulio Vetrone like the Pop Montreal festival in 2006,[8] while Manchion joins again Ulan Bator[9] and Faust[10] in 2005 and 2006, touring also again[11] with Damo Suzuki of Can (band) in France part of the "French Doctors" collective,[12] and then disappears for years. In november 2014 Manchion announced[13] the relaunch of the project and a new release entitled "Deaf sun / Deaf blues"[14] on the italian "microlabel" Secret furry hole.[15]
