Review by Windhawk
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
5 stars French quartet JACK DUPON was formed in 2004, and has since its earliest days been a band subscribing to the Rock In Opposition and avant-garde approach. An active live unit from the onset, but in between concerts and tours one self-released and two label distributed studio albums have been issued too, the most recent of these "Demon Hardi" from 2011. "Bascule a Vif" is their fourth production, a double CD that documents their qualities as a live band.

If you can imagine a vital brew with ingredients provided by the likes of King Crimson, Gong and Frank Zappa given a rather typical French dramatic flavoring, then you're pretty close to what Jack Dupon is all about, enticing on their studio albums, but this double live CD documents rather thoroughly that this is a band that has its very best moments on stage, adding an energy and intensity to their creations that elevates them to a higher level. A production that most likely will have its strongest appeal among followers of avant-garde rock and the Rock In Opposition interested audience, and in particular by those who appreciate strong and well recorded live performances of that nature.
