NOA-S/T, LP, 1980, FRANCE




Another thoroughly awesome zeuhl album from 80's France, albeit one with a somewhat more intimate sound than their peers in the French zeuhl scene of that era. Lead chateuse Claudie Nicolas' vocals (remiscent of Pascal Son of Cos) give Noa's sound a rather different charge, fronting an ensemble who's approach seems closer to the more open sounding early-Magma-influenced side of the zeuhl canon, something that aligns them most closely to a group like Honeyelk.

Thank you for continuing to provide these fringe zeuhl gems. I'm a great admirer of your blog.

Holy crap! It's going to take years for me to listen to all these postings!

Plus I feel sorry for my own record collection which I've been ignoring since I discovered this blog in January.

I think I'll go listen to my "Bert Sings" record, just to let my collection know I still love it.

A good release with some hits and misses. I found "Pellerin" somewhat dragged out but "L'oseau Fou" is the album's highlight, very clever and successful use of vocals-as-instrument there.
