Eric Delaunay biography
Eric DELAUNAY was a French drummer/percussionist that very little is known about. He was an early member of a band called ASIA MINOR, but left the band before they recorded anything. Somehow, he was able to find a label that would market his very non-commercial music and released one album in 1980 called "Antagonisme!" with himself providing the drums, Paul AMAR on bass, Philippe BAMBUK on guitar and Jean-Marc THIEBAUD on keyboards.

Unfortunately, after this album, the band basically disappeared and none of them was hear of again except for DELAUNAY, who went on to form the mostly instrumental fusion band called TIEMKO (also in the Archives) in the 1980's. When that band was disbanded in the mid-1990's, he joined another band named DEBOCO, but sadly, he died from an illness in 1996 before that band's album was finished, and he only appears on a couple of tracks.

The one example of his solo efforts is an excellent specimen of complex instrumental music, mostly energetic with his driving percussion work and some atmospheric and short piano passages. Influences include KING CRIMSON, GENESIS, GENTLE GIANT, ART ZOYD, Frank ZAPPA, VARESE, STRAVINSKY, Charles YVES, DEEP PURPLE and QUEEN. Also, fans of these bands along with MAGMA will find plenty to love here.
