Ma Banlieue Flasque - 1979 France

Ma Banlieue Flasque sole album is an excellent work that draws from a variety of early 70s sources such as Moving Gelatine Plates, Komintern, and Frank Zappa. The music is complex, yet still melodic, with a bit of a wacky sense of humor thrown in. I'd submit that Ma Banlieue Flasque is perhaps more jazz influenced than the references above, but it I think would go down a storm with the avant prog crowd, plus those who like that European Continental fusion sound, as first pioneered and influenced by Zappa's Hot Rats.

Personal collection
LP: 1979 Celluloid

Originals come in a somewhat nondescript single sleeve cover. No legit reissues exist.
