NPTOLPQSIVRT (Not in PA database)

NPTOLPQSIVRT (1987)
Imprint: Musea


Track list:
1. Hyafil de pute
2. A fond la caisse
3. Trois saucisses et deux moules
4. A bas la France
5. Rendez-vous sur la Pont-Neuf
6. Comme des fous (Blues en 6/8)
7. Rick Tuhh

Label info:
TRX5, XZV3, SLP3.35 and 3KR2 are several of the ex-members of the brassy jazz band NPTOLPQSIVRT. The pseudonyms chosen by the musicians might tell you something...Very weird at first listen, their work actually turns out to be a little more conventional (not that that's saying much). All sorts of instruments rub cheeks with a happy (but controlled) delirium of noisy percussion, off-kilter rhythms and thunderous solos, all of which gives the group's music a genuinely iconoclastic cachet.

Samples:
None available. Issued on vinyl only.

Troll (Not in PA database)

Volume Deux (1987)
Imprint: Musea Records

Label info:
The original lineup of TROLL included a certain Jean-Pascal BOFFO among its ranks. "Volume Deux" also included prestigious guests such as Bernard PAGANOTTI, Francis MOZE, Klaus BLASQUIZ, Stella VANDER, Guy KHALIFA and the GUILLARD brothers (Alain and Yvon). Of course one would never be reminded of MAGMA by this list, right ? This group, led by drummer-keyboardist-singer Michel ALTMAYER, shows the BARTOK and COLTRANE influences typical of the Zeuhl genre, mixing them together with unfailing skill.

Note:
While Musea sort this one as a production by Troll, this album is most commonly sorted under Michel Altmayer, with the album name being "Troll Vol. 2"

Zantic Le Jazzman (1988)

Mandragore (Not in PA database)

A Revivre Le Futur... (1990)
Imprint: Musea

Label info:
Drummer Michel ALTMAYER worked with Jean-Pascal BOFFO in MANDRAGORE during 1976, not long before the group changed its name to GEHEB-RE and then to TROLL. It evokes a rested MAGMA and a masterly mixture between GENESIS and EDHELS. Originally "A Revivre Le Futur..." was recorded by Musea on LP in 1990.

In "Trio(s)" (1989), our man presents a more jazzy music but always crossed with exotic perfumes and lightened by a luminous guitar playing. It creates a refreshing music, full of inventivity and punch.

I tried to get Changing Images included in PA some years ago because I think this band is cool.......ehh, make that progressive. 

Suggest them again, Olav, and you will get my backing. 

Btw. Grime too sounds cool to me. Suggest them too.

Both have been suggested. Going through that massive list back on page 2 of this thread, step by step, and suggesting those I can find any kind of samples for that I think may have a chance. Also linking the rest to the PA database along the way. A -massive- project....

Artist: BaG (Not in PA database)

Soudain L'éléphant (1993)
Imprint: Musea



Track list:
1 - Snerte - (4'16)
2 - Anasha - (4'43)
3 - Sonlaille - (4'36)
4 - Le Kri De La Reine - (4'35)
5 - Gesme - (4'45)
6 - Moon Is Dead - (4'49)
7 - Abéné - (5'15)
8 - Udaï - (4'14)
9 - Elle Se Promène - (3'54)
10 - Little Desert Hotel - (7'23)
11 - Le Chat Noir - (5'54)

Label info:
Here's a real novelty in the world of Progressive rock ! BaG is an original French group (From Britanny) that draws on ethnic and folk elements, to give its brand of Progressive rock its own special character. Of course, one could say that Peter GABRIEL and OZRIC TENTACLES have done similar things, but their instrumental concoction integrates magical guitar, unflagging rhythmic support from drums and bass, and the wind instruments used (Saxophone, flute, bombarde, crumhorn...) give each piece its own unique atmosphere. A jazz-rock atmosphere is very pregnant, thanks to the fretless bass (Yannick HARDOUIN) ala Jaco PASTORIUS or guitar soli (Nicolas Van MINGOT) close to Allan HOLDSWORTH's. "Soudain L'Eléphant..." (1992) got the blessing from famous French composer Gabriel YACOUB. He offered one of his compositions. Not to be missed at any price !!!

Artist: Zabu (Not in PA database)

My Coffin's Ready (1972/1993)
Imprint: Musea

Track list:
1 - Yellow Girl - (3'58)
2 - Doctor Moonshine - (3'42)
3 - Coffin's Ready - (8'27)
4 - Subversion Blues - (5'26)
5 - Informer Blues - (4'10)
6 - Silent Angel - (5'10)
7 - Ice-Pick Blues - (1'39)

Label info:
ZABU, also known under the name Lucien ZABUSKI, was the first MAGMA's first singer. A part of the Thélème label, so dear to Laurent THIBAUT, "My Coffin's Ready" (1972) proves to be very different from anything we could expect, given that it is actually a French blues album. Without any pretence, this masterpiece manages to captivate the listener all along. The singer's rough and energetic voice dominates the music with great ease. We'll also notice the participation of such prestigious musicians as Christian VANDER, Francis MOZE, Teddy LASRY, Yochk'o SEFFER and Marc PERRU. As you already know, most of them are obviously part of the Zeuhl universe. Here is then a definite historic document !

Schwarzarbeit (Not in PA database)

James Gordon's Story (1994)
Imprint: Musea



Track list:
1 - Non-Stop Movies - (6'59)
2 - The Chamber - (5'10)
3 - The Open Window's Scenario - (5'41)
4 - A Summer Holiday Film - (3'43)
5 - The Change Of An Internal Idea - (4'21)
6 - The Outburst - (4'18)
7 - The Silent Fields After - (5'19)
8 - The Finale - (7'11)
9 - Klavierstunde - (1'38)
10 - Fata Morgana - (5'12)
11 - Purple Shadow-Like Faces - (4'00)

Label info:
SCHWARZARBEIT is an "old" German group that has been existing since the Seventies. But the group has considerably matured since the self-titled album recorded in 1979 and "Traum Oder Wirklichkeit", the second opus released three years later. The comeback album is now hosted by the Musea label: "James Gordon's Story" (1994). The tracks of this album are often instrumental and develop brilliant guitar parts close to Steve HACKETT, especially when there are acoustic sequences. Full of delicacy and sensitivity, compositions alternate energy and melancholy with talent and conviction. Here is an excellent Progressive rock album, well composed and played. Not to be missed !

Jean-Philippe Goude (Not in PA database)

Drones (1979/1994)
Imprint: Musea

Track list:
1 - Les Saturnales - (5'16)
2 - Sicilienne - (0'57)
3 - Machine - (3'55)
4 - Drôle D'Ere - (5'02)
5 - Coma - (2'40)
6 - Trepidanse - (3'06)
7 - Duo - (1'13)
8 - Dies Irae - (3'26)
9 - Tintinnabulum - (6'54)
10 - Cantilene - (3'08)
11 - Trio De Mini-Moogs - (4'59)

Label info:
Jean-Philippe GOUDE chose an all-star cast of musicians to record his album "Drônes" in 1979, today reissued by the Musea label. With the help of some famous guests such as violinist David ROSE (TRANSIT-EXPRESS), singer Klaus BLASQUIZ (MAGMA), drummer Manu KATCHE (Peter GABRIEL), François OVIDE, bass player Bernard PAGANOTTI (WEIDORJE), American drummer Kirt RUST (VOLKOR) and violinist Patrick TILLEMAN (Almost thirty musicians in total !), the former keyboards player of WEIDORJE continues his original fusion influenced as much by Zeuhl than by neo-classiscal music. He performs a dreamy but still very strong music that still owes a little something to the violence of WEIDORJE. Let's note, for instance, that four guitar players may play simultaneously ! Let's also mention the feverish sequences of HELDON, and you'll have a pretty good idea of what's all that about.

Album registered under the name Clearlight and reviewed by myself. Check Clearlight, Olav. 

Our friend used both his own name and Clearlight as his vehicle, but agreed with me that it can be labelled under Clearlight.

Aha. I really didn't think to check a solo album under a band name, but guess it avoids adding the rest of his solo efforts to the database...?

Edit:
Hmmm, now this looks like a database problem. Clearlight might have been his band, but the musical escapades of band and solo artist are at times vastly different. And as the solo career by now dwarfs the band efforts in sheer numbers, this is misinforming to anyone but those who are aware of this band being the former creative vehicle of that artist.
Did Ivan OK this solution?

Ah, never mind. At some point these entries should be separated, but not a priority case.

WLUD (Not in PA database)

Carrycrotch' (1978/1995)
Imprint: Musea

Track list:
1 - Amazone - (5'15)
2 - Carrycroch' - (8'05)
3 - Holiday Maker - (5'05)
4 - Remember Song - (6'10)
5 - Sweet Bridge - (9'45)
6 - Spitfire - (7'50)

Label info:
French band from the late Seventies, WLUD is made of the initials of its four musician's name. Philippe WENDLING, Bernard LABROCHE, Gigi UNTERSINGER and Gianni DRAGO play instrumental Progressive rock music full of fineness and contrast. Its compositions are very well constructed, including many themes full of detours and surprises as well as rich harmonies. The first album "Carrycroch'" (1978) can be compared with works by CAMEL or Bo HANSSON.



------

Second (1979/1997)
Imprint: Musea

Track list:
1 - Rocky - (6'42)
2 - Fire - (6'15)
3 - Nemausus - (4'08)
4 - Ay - (4'05)
5 - Sismique - (5'30)
6 - Le Tigre - (6'58)
7 - Le Poète Des Interdits - (6'00)
8 - Alias Circus - (4'45)
9 - Vivisection-Assassination - (4'47)
10 - La Souris - (3'38)
11 - Phoque Rescapé - (3'25)



Label info:
On "Second" (1979), WLUD evolves towards a mixing of Progressive rock with some jazz-rock accents. The musician display melodious themes, full of nuances and marriage of sounds. Keyboards and guitar weave serene, tormented or ethereal and romantic climates. Though less ambitious, this can be considered as a great meeting between CAMEL and BRAND X. Both Musea reissues include bonus-tracks, essentially from two singles recorded later on (With French lyrics). To be rediscovered

Ilous & Decuyper (Not in PA database)

Ilous & Decuyper (1971/1996)
Imprint: Musea

Track list:
1 - Indifférents - (1'22)
2 - Vous Mourrez Demain - (4'03)
3 - Cor Bucolique - (2'56)
4 - Eleanor Rigby - (4'39)
5 - Non - (3'42)

13 - Indifférents - (1'22)
14 - Aime-Toi Toi-Même - (3'25)
15 - L'Espoir - (4'00)



Label info:
In the early Seventies, French musicians Bernard ILOUS & Patrice DECUYPER released in a complete indifference an eponymous album, gem of refinement, melodic beauty and arrangments subtelty. Both guitarist-singers deliver superb vocal harmonies, rarely found in French rock, in a spirit and a technical perfection close to THE BEATLES or CROSBY, STILLS, NASH & YOUNG. A great instrumental variety (Acoustic and electric guitar, organ, piano...), lyrics in French full of serenity and poetry, clever and delicate instrumental parts made this album a timeless classic. Only title sung in English, THE BEATLES' "Eleanor Rigby" benefits from a great electric guitar solo, courtesy of the great Jean-Pierre ALARCEN (SANDROSE). A perfect success, which is worth discovering even now !
