Release Info: BASILE AND ZE PECH'NOUZ GROUPE-MA CHARETTE EST MALADE; MON CHEVAL EST CASSE, 7" EP, 1968, FRANCE
One of the earliest shots over the bow for both the French underground music scene and one of it's most formidable movers, the Gallic grand old man of the outwardly bound Jean-Pierre Massiera, whose subsequent releases from the late 60's to the early 80's have marked this producer/arranger/conceptualist as one of the cornerstone figures within the history of French musical radicalism; Massiera having been the driving force behind legendary left field acts like Les Maledictus Sound, Horrific Child, Visitors and Venus Gang. This little known unit's sole outing was issued during the same year as his far better known Les Maledictus Sound LP and offers up a similarly dada-detourned incursion into pop psychedelic song arrangement, only with barnyard antics replacing the grand prix and haunted house settings of Les Maledictus Sound, as buzzsaw fuzz beat psych tendencies compete with mooing cows, chansons and episodes of spluttering gibberish.
