3 stars A two-track EP lasting just under 20 minutes, the Cd reissue had a third track thrown in there, a remastered track that can also be found on Les Explositionnistes. While this theatrical and experimental Post Punk might certainly be progressive in terms of musical adventures, it won't hold much interest for progheads, unless into extreme form of RIO, Math and Noise Rock and eventually free jazz. Lyrically denouncing Yougoslavian massacres and probably being leftist militants, this type of project makes little sense unless you adhere and concentrate solly on it, and even then, full comprehension of such projects is still not garanteed.

The lyrics are mostly spoken, taken from a multi-discipline project, and the monologue is interesting once, gets semi-amusing with the bruitages done by musicians behind the speaker. The track overstays its welcome by the time it gets to the end of the first Expriences De Survie, and one can only cringe at the thought of two more to come. Fortunately the the second is fairly short and the third benefits from a Cello background, which makes it bearable. Markale 2 is thankfully short, while the "bonus" track is the better one on the Les Explositionnistes album, so it gets favourable reviews here as well. Hardly essential, but worth a listen to those that might find their thrills on this thing. I'll personally stick to the full-length album.
