Grunblatt was a member of Heldon in their earlier days and here on his 1980 solo, he's helped out by the entirety of Heldon's late model line-up (albeit not always at the same time), meaning, Pinhas, Patrick Gauthier and Heldon's ace rhythm section of Francois Auger and Didier Batard as well as Weidorje guitarist Michel Ettori. For Heldon fiends, this makes this something of a holy grail, but there are reasons beyond just K-Priss' line-up to bestow upon it such wild praise. The other principal reason is that this is not just great French electronic prog, it's great *cheese* as well. I wouldn't necessarily call this disco-prog, but it's got all sorts of highly winning and amusing period details that really sends this over the top for me on multiple levels.

re k-priss: thanks so much for posting this, this is definitely one album I've been itching to hear for ages, but could never find a copy anywhere! On first listen it vaguely reminds me of 'ose', but that's probably pinhas's signature gtr work and programming at hand... let's see what happens after a few more listens
cheers again

If you ever felt like shouting "encore" as side 2 of Heldon's "Interface" ends, get this. Awesome. Great guitar on the second cut.
