Release:1972 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
In 1970 Barney Wilen assembled a team of filmmakers, technicians and musicians to travel to Africa in order to record the music of the native pygmy tribes. Upon returning to Paris, two years later, he created 'Moshi', a dark, eccentric effort fusing avant-jazz sensibilities with African rhythms, ambient sound effects and melodies rooted in American blues traditions. Cut with French and African players, including guitarist Pierre Chaze, pianist Michel Graillier and percussionist Didier Leon, this is music with few precedents or followers, spanning from extraterrestrial dissonance to earthbound, streetlegal funk. The set includes a 20-page booklet with rare pictures, sheet music and original liner notes. The DVD includes Caroline de Bendern's movie 'A L'Intention De Mlle Issoufou A Bilma', documenting this incredible African journey.

Jean-Francois Pauvros & Gaby Bizien
No Man's Land
LP | 1976 | FR | Reissue (Souffle Continu)
20,99 €*
Release:1976 / FR – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Recorded by Jean-François Pauvros (guitar, but not only...) alongside Gaby Bizien (drums, percussion, aquatic trombone, marimba, bird calls), and, of course, produced by the audacious Jef Gilson, the appropriately named 'No Man's Land' had virtually no equivalent in France (nor worldwide) when it came out in 1976. Radical, free, primitive, timeless: in the image of the musicians, it is not for nothing that it appears in the famous Nurse With Wound list of major influences concocted in 1979. No label can be placed on this vertiginous sensory adventure: an explosive flow of shrapnel and tearing intensity, full of mystery and life.

Mahjun (1973) Orange Vinyl Edition
LP | 1973 | EU | Reissue (Souffle Continu)
21,99 €*
Release:1973 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
Mahjun, one of the most innovative progressive underground bands from the French 70s scene, released its eponymous classic debut-album through the Saravah label in 1973. The group's music, as heard on such tracks as 'Les Enfants Sauvages' or 'Chez Planos', is a subtle mix of spiritual jazz, pop, folk and avant-garde, reminding of Full Moon Ensemble, Brigitte Fontaine or Le Théatre Du Chêne Noir. Now reissued on vinyl for the first time.

Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
When the second Nu Creative Methods album was released, New And Rediscovered Musical Instruments by Max Eastley and David Toop had already been available for almost three years. Without being able to say that there was a direct, real-time influence, the direction taken by the British and French duos was however the same, combining research and tradition in a quest for a new imaginary folklore.The name chosen by the pair was anything but innocent, linking them to both the track «Nu Creative Love» by Don Cherry (from Symphony For Improvisers) and the book My Creative Method by Francis Ponge. Because the first outlines the route of a free jazz the boundaries of which have constantly been demolished and through which Pierre Bastien and Bernard Pruvost traced their own path, while the second, an anarchist creating a bomb with the irrational as gunpowder, is close to providing an intellectual method. Close, because even this is undermined by other essential routes taken by Nu Creative Methods. The Oulipo, for example, encouraged all sorts of creativity; or perhaps pataphysics, according to which a banal saucepan is equivalent to the Mona Lisa! To get closer to the source of their imagination, the following names would have to be added to the list, Locus Solus by Raymond Roussel, the Art Ensemble of Chicago, Harry Partch, New Phonic Art and «Zwei Mann Orchester» by Maurizio Kagel. That shows, in broad strokes, the creative wheels in motion behind Nu Creative Methods and Nu Jungle Dances offers a taste of the pathways offered by chance, following improvisations using instruments from the five continents.By proceeding thus, that is to say entering an esthetic zone where popular and esoteric music come together at last, an infinite palette of sounds opens up, offering fantastic perspectives. Between free jazz and ancestral music, Nu Jungle Dances makes it happen without pretence but with a rare and luminous extravagance. But also with the willingness to take on board unexpected surprises, and with a natural charm combating for the craft of sound creation.500 copies - 4 page booklet - Obi StripLicenced from Nu Creative Methods

Camizole & Lard Free

Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
The ranks of Camizole included some of the most essential personalities of the French underground, notably Dominique Grimaud (Vidéo-Aventures), Chris Chanet (Etron Fou Leloublan) and Bernard Filipetti (Art & Technique). Their idea of music, if we look further than the pair Dominique Grimaud – Bernard Filipetti and a style of music influenced by Klaus Schulze, is inspired by the liberty of free jazz. This is nonetheless modified by a cathartic approach close to the esthetic preoccupations of Julian Beckand Judith Malina's Living Theatre. The result is a musical happening, where the important thing is to improvise in the urgency of the moment in front of a not-always receptive public.Before exploring constructed repetitive forms which would be perfected by Urban Sax, Lard Free were more in the domain of noise improvisation, or even a kind of jazz rock similar to that of Soft Machine, as can be heard on a late retrospective album, from which the track "À chacun son Boulez" emerged.There was logically great complicity between Camizole and Lard Free, which would lead to the two groups finally merging. This was the case for four concerts in May before the two groups disbanded in order to finally get to grips with the free rock in the style of Faust that they liked so much. As an ode to anarchy, a record now bears witness to those communal experiences. 500 copies made. Obi Strip. 8 Page Booklet. Licensed from Camizole.

Is freedom worth more than mastery, construction and achievement? In replying yes, the utopians of Camizole clear show which side they are on. For them, musical creation must be as spontaneous as possible. To achieve this, it is better to put egos to one side to concentrate on collective experimentation, to be tried and tested in front of a live audience. Playing the card of unlimited and unhindered improvisation is Camizole's crédo, having decided to get a taste of the urgent game-playing already established by the Nihilist Spasm Band and the Living Theatre research of Julian Beck and Judith Malina.At the time, that is to say when punk was exploding, this concept, itself inherited from the May 68 events, made an impact on Chris Cutler of Henry Cow, but also Lindsay Cooper, who invited Camizole member Françoise Crublé to join the Feminist Improvising Group. Also, the Tapioca label run by Jean Georgakarakos (co-founder of BYG Records), considered producing an album, from a live recording made at the Théâtre de Chartres in November 1977. Unfortunately the label rapidly ceased all activities and the recording was left in a drawer, which was a real shame.Today, after extracts and other live bits and pieces came out via Spalax at the end of the 1990s, an integral double-album is finally being released to do justice to the collective created by Jacky Dupéty, and which included, amongst others Dominique Grimaud(Vidéo-Aventures), Chris Chanet (Etron Fou Leloublan, Urban Sax), Xavier Jouvelet (notably heard alongside Lol Coxhill) and Bernard Filipetti (Art & Technique).

Jean-Francois Pauvros & Gaby Bizien
Pays Noir
LP | 2017 | FR | Original (Souffle Continu)
19,99 €*
Release:2017 / FR – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Previously unreleased, the three tracks on 'Pays Noir' come from recording sessions held at the same time as those for the cult album 'No Man's Land' produced by Jef Gilson in 1976. Brimming with the same fervour as 'No Man's Land', Jean-François Pauvros and Gaby Bizien invent an amazing unbridled chaos of instinctive combinations, which are the fruit of their immense complicity, born of days on end playing together, trying to transform the rebelliousness of rock into free-form sparks unlike anything heard before.
Jac Berrocal - La Nuit Est Au Courant
Jac Berrocal
La Nuit Est Au Courant
LP | 2017 | FR | Original (Souffle Continu)
22,99 €*
Release:2017 / FR – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
When he published 'La Nuit Est Au Courant' in the early '90s, Jac Berrocal had already recorded his famous 'Rock'n'Roll Station' and collaborated three times with Nurse With Wound. Backed by two bassists (including jazz critic Francis Marmande) and a drummer (Jacques Thollot), Jac Berrocal does here what he does best: defy labels and slalom between genres. The result sounds a bit like Don Cherry jamming with David Bowie and Brian Eno in Berlin. The LP includes a 4-page booklet.

Release:1972 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Next' (originally from 1972) is even more audacious than its 1971 predecessor 'Hippotigris Zebra Zebra'. Relatively brief tracks follow hot on the heels of one another, bolstered by a poly-instrumentality which stands out even more than in the past, giving the album the feel of a contrasting suite. Limited to 700 copies in a gatefold sleeve with an obi.

Hippotigris Zebra Zebra
LP | 1971 | EU | Reissue (Souffle Continu)
22,99 €*
Release:1971 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Fitting together like hand in glove, the five musicians of the Cohelmec Ensemle build something together, rather than trying to destroy an established order, as was the done thing at the start of the 1970s. In France there was a tendency to explore an imaginary folklore which allowed certain elements of free jazz to be circumvented without being ignored. Which is why we can be reminded of, in the melody of 'Hippotigris Zebra Zebra' when played with collective intensity, the best of American cosmic jazz, while also occasionally hearing McCoy Tyner or even Cecil Taylor under the fingers of Dominique Elbaz, or the vibraphone of Walt Dickerson evoked by Jean-Louis Méchali. Limited to 700 copies in a gatefold sleeve with an obi. The LP was originally released in 1971.

Genre:Organic Grooves
For their third and final album, the Cohelmec Ensemble chose to record a live performance, since it were those live shows on which the ensemble's reputation was based. Here including trumpeter Jean-François Canape, the group lost none of its subtlety in moving from studio to stage. On the contrary; the situation galvanised the musicians on to higher energy levels, without leaving behind the typically complex structures.Limited to 500 copies in a gatefold sleeve with obi. Originally released in 1974.

The second eponymous album by this exceptional French prog band dates from 1974. Percussionist Nana Vasconcellos joined Mahjun's line up on the almost 14-minute track 'La Ville Pue' and 'Fin Janvier'. In some tracks the group's politico folk prog sound shifted towards an ethnic flavoured psychedelic fusion. Now reissued on vinyl for the first time.
