Not much are known about this cult progressive rock band from France.The band came from Lyon and had been active since the 70's,as reportedly they had released a short-LP entitled ''Reves/Terre des vilains'' in 1976.Their official debut was published in 1981 under the title ''Vie''.ANGIPATCH's style have been compared to ANGE and MONA LISA,that means a keyboard-driven theatrical Symphonic Rock with emphasis on poetic vocal lines.But,while ANGE had chosen the commercial path around the same time,the musicianship of ANGIPATCH is still rooted in the 70's despite the heavy use of synthesizers.Their sound is a mix of synthesizers-based Symphonic Progressive Rock with New Qave/Synth-Pop music and poetic/lyrical rock.Balanced between the pop attack of early 80's and the sophisticated sound of the 70's Symphonic Rock movement,''Vie'' is a very interesting album and ANGIPATCH were a band,who didn't sell themselves to the time's music industry.A rare album with a delicate sound!
