Christelle Ou La Decouverte Du Mal
Reissue of a rare, 250 copy private press progressive rock album from France, rated 5 stars in the Pokora Books. Christelle is a 6 year old girl. She is happy. One day she meets an Evil Genius who makes her have bad hallucinations. Each song is one of her hallucinations. Check! Recorded on a 4 track Akai in the small town of Luxueil-les-Bains, this album was only sold at a few shows and in one local shop. Pressed at the small Le Kiosque DOrphee pressing plant, this was truly a private offering with the band having made and glued the covers themselves. A long album, including the 14+ minute progressive gem Theme Guerre, the music spans from lo-fi fuzz laden numbers to strong progressive songs with numerous bridges and changes. Conceptually a Rock Opera, but plays like a full length progressive album that could rival anything from France at the time.
