This band was part of the late '70s - '80s Zeuhl bands from France, with vast Jazzy touches. There was a brief name droped in the Zeuhl 5 thread abotu this band. So I though I would fill people in a little more about this band.

The quatrieme mouvement

*Pierrejean Gaucher/guitar
*Eric Bono/keyboard
*Laurent Kzrewina/sax
*Pascal Gaillard/bass
*Alain Mourey/drums
*Sylvie Voise/vocal
*Catriona Walsia/vocal
*Dan Ken/vibraphone
*Arnaud Jarlan/percussion
*Nigel Warren Green/cello

recorded in December 1979
released in 1980

To make it from landladies in in the record debut of this band French it is just that typical progressive Jazz of oltralpe that a lot must to the English school (Canterbury is not then therefore far…) but that the acts of band like MAGMA, GONG or ZAO have contributed to render absolutely personal and meaningfully it originates them. ABUS DANGEREUX is however one creature (10 musicians!!!) that it sees to its inside to shine the compositiva star of PierreJean Gaucher, chitarristico talent in large I dust also in the organization of the general sound of the group. Its complex partiture totally characterize for their continuous cangianti atmospheres, previewing for the listener one necessary attention and concentration, rewarded but with interesting sonorous elements to the height of the situation. It goes moreover noticed with particular appreciation the fact that Caucher relatively remains however “defiladed” in the general sound, privileging the chisel, the “particular one” to the eventual solistiche exposures, left instead the talent of Laurent Kzrewina (sax) and Eric Bono (keyboards). One chosen evidently dictated more from reasons than sonorous effectiveness that do not give a shape of performantica shyness. Gaucher is evidently one that it knows to listen to the band and it knows when it is the moment of porsi in light with discretion and measure. In short a great beautiful disc of jazz-prog of the end of years seventy, one of the little last blows of tail of a musical intelligence that them little will lose every contact with the juvenile musical market supplanted from attitudes and “worthy appearances” more of the display windows than a whichever center trades them rather than not of a disc store.
Absolutely advised!!!

yes worthy of inclusion to me
let's just stay above the moral melee
prefer the sink to the gutter
keep our sand-castle virtues
content to be a doer
as well as a thinker,
prefer lifting our pen
rather than un-sheath our sword
