Reissue on 180 gram vinyl of this French progressive rock gem.
This band was founded by Francis Lemonnier (sax and vocals) and Serge Catalano (drums and percussions) in May 1970 after they left Red Noise due to musical and political disagreements. They released one album called 'Le Bal Du Rat Mort' in 1971 and one single 'Fou, Roi, Pantin' and were active until 1975. At first they were less focused on composing only music but more on mixing it along with satiric theater - a sort of "cabaret satirique", in order to express their extreme left views. They used their music to enhance their message, and they did it in a manner that mixed several styles of music that would fit their show and the message to be passed on to the crowd/listeners. They were related to extreme left movements such as the Ligue Communiste Révolutionnaire and they toured in the summer of 1970 in, among other places, universities and factories that were in strike.
