Les Goths - Reve de Silence. 1968 France

Les Goths - Reve de Silence. 2011 Shadoks (Germany). Archival recordings from 1968

Packaging: This fine archival package was released on both vinyl and CD by Shadoks. Features full liner notes regarding the history, and plenty of photos. I currently own only the CD.

Notes: Here we have an insane psychedelic blues archival album from France, not a country normally known for such things - at least not in the late 60s. There's not a whole lot in the way of song craft here, but who cares really when you have this kind of insane fuzz guitar coupled with the frenetic drumming. Not to mention the spaced out vocals in English, French, and Mitterrand's personal burden: Franglais. Had Chico Magnetic Band released their album in 1968 rather than 1971, then this would have been a reasonable facsimile of such a fantasy. Quite an incredible find from the good folks at Shadoks. Highly recommended.
