This "group" was the gathering of numerous inclassable musicians (Gilbert ARTMANN from LARD FREE, Cyril LEFEBVRE) under the direction of Dominique GRIMAUD (author of the book "A Certain French rock).

They offer a music full of references and winks to Erik SATIE, CAPTAIN BEEFHEART, ZNR or the RESIDENTS.
Reissue of debut album by innovative band from ea;ry 80's collecting the creme dela creme of french AVANT GARDE like members from CATALOQUE adn ETRON FOU.

The album was produced by GILBERT ARTMAN (LARD FREE).

 

Reissue of debut album by innovative band from ea;ry 80's collecting the creme dela creme of french AVANT GARDE like members from CATALOQUE adn ETRON FOU.

A strange avant cult-classic, largely unknown outside of a few very small circles, that lives up to the hype.

"Originally released in 1984, Video Aventures was the brain-child of Dominique Grimaud and Monique Alba. After releasing an EP, Musiques Pour Garcons et Filles, to much critical acclaim, they decided to record their first full length record...by collecting together the cream of French avant-garde, this album features Jac Berrocal (Catalogue), Cyril Lefebvre, Guigou Chennevier (Etron Fou) and Sophie Jausserand. To top it all off, the album was sculpted, arranged and produced by Gilbert Artman (Lard Free, Uban Sax). A musical triumph in all respects, this record is extreme, electronic, experimental, above all intelligent and just absolutely stunning."
