HERBE ROUGE-COTE COUR, COTE JARDIN, LP, 1978, FRANCE



Wonderful but capital "W" wacky French jazzy prog with distinct tendencies toward both the post-Canterbury-isms of their countrymen in Moving Gelatine Plates and Rhesus O and the mutant circus jazz of Komintern and Mahjun, but always with the zaniness (particularly vocal zaniness) to the fore, their campy shrill falsetto vocal schtick in particular seemingly genetically grafted from Germany's Nine Days Wonder. Note: this is taken from the CD reissue, which included many bonus cuts and has been divided into two parts.

THanks for all these gems.
Just a question:
this record is the same record of Herbe rouge sometimes called "herbe Rouge"?
Thanks again
bye

Thanks very much for the Herbe Rouge album, I love it! Very much of a Nine Days Wonder influence here [plus a bit of Zappa, vague Canterbury styles and some tango... yes, tango! Or something like that...] Lots of fun :-)
