Prog Reviewer
3 stars Fille Qui Mousse (Frothing Girl) was supposedly recorded in just one day in July '71. One of the more mysterious experimental underground French acts, this didn't actually see the light of day until 2001 due to their 'Futura' label going into financial meltdown in the early 70's.

Bizarrely 'Se Taire Pour Une Femme Trop Belle' translates into English as 'Shutting up for a Woman Too Pretty'. What the??!...

Partly tape experiment, psychedelia and Krautrock. Barking dogs and field recordings emerge at varying points amidst a maelstrom of noise, alien pipes, horns and chopped up nonsense. A strange experimental free rock recording which at times is beautiful and at others downright annoying. All in all, a very unique recording for 1971.

All eight of these guys were clearly mashed and sky high at the time of pulling this monster together. I don't think they could have done it otherwise.

Strangest of all, Steve Stapleton of 'Nurse With Wound' fame included this on the famous 'Nurse with Wound List' in 1980 and named his daughter 'Trixie'. Trixie Stapleton... What's the chances? Talking of 'Nurse With Wound' - there's plenty of snippets 'borrowed' from this recording that made it on to some of their recordings.

Quite similar to what a French "Faust" would have sounded like, and only recommended to those of a more experimental disposition.

Dobermensch | 3/5 |
