Le Gong Du Balayeur biography
Obscure French band Le Gong Du Balayeur released one album in 1981 that mixes several elements, namely some folk with a whimsy and humorous Zappaesque style reminiscent of fellow countrymen Komintern and Ma Banlieue Flasque. The musicians are Michel PUYAU and Sylvain RICHARDOT. They met when Sylvain wrote a poem book called Le Gong Du Balayeur and was looking for an illustrator for it and thus met Michel who was one. This encounter lead to them teaming up to write music and songs together and to form the group. In 1985 they merged with another band, Le Mécanophone, to form Chanson Plus Bifluorée.

Le Gong Du Balayeur Crossover Prog

Review by Marty McFly
Special Collaborator Errors and Omissions Team

4 stars Let's face it, Prog is usually serious business (same as internet as some say). This is not. And not in a bad way, where this would be completely rubbish-type of work, but rather in "let's make good music, while having some fun" way.

Whimsical, that's perfect word to describe it. Quirky and Zappa-esque can also work. It also reminds me band that emerges 2 decades later, Cartoon (from Brazil). Except track Le Soleil, which is quite normal, symphonic ballad.

French language works perfectly here, making deserved theatrical effect. Changing of styles, from wild folk ballad to pure Symphonic Prog makes it fine Crossover addition (if you don't embrace consistency that much).

But if works for me, it works very well, so

4(+) from me, for original approach and for enjoyability.
