Review by Windhawk
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars Multinational ensemble LES BATTERIES was assembled by Guigou Chenevier in 1985, consisting of himself and fellow drummers Rick Brown and Charles Hayward. Hayward decided to move on to other pastures in 1987, but the project continued on as a duo utilizing various guest musicians as needed. "Noisy Champs" was the only album recorded by the initial version of the band, and was originally issued back in 1986. Largely unavailable for many years, Musea Records decided to reissue this production on their Gazul imprint in 2010. Adding a total of six bonus tracks, all of them efforts of a more recent date.

If you have a more than passing interest in rhythm dominated efforts, find experimental and minimalistic music to be generally intriguing and adhere to the philosophy that the best and most interesting music is of a non-conformative nature, Les Batteries is a band that warrants your attention. And while it may not be an example of sheer perfection from start to finish there's a fair deal of interesting material to be found, with personal tastes and interests limiting or expanding the scope of this creation as far as enjoyable experiences go.
