VIDEO LISZT-EKTAKROM KILLER, LP, 1981, FRANCE




The first in a series of Richard Pinhas-related rarities that I'll be posting in the coming days, Video Liszt were a mucho ridiculous and super fun vocoder synth cheese unit that featured an appearance by Messr. Pinhas and were much talked up by him back in the day. Coming in a cover that speaks volumes about the contents therein, this is bordering on the Dr. Who rock territory of the Visitors album I posted a short while back.

Richard Pinhas huh? Sounds like something I need to give a listen to.

Thanks (cause I'd never heard of it before now)!

re videoliszt, This is a really cool album, and I've always wondered what the artwork was like, "Pictures of machine men" is a fave track,

thanks!

This one's OK... certainly the track "The Tube" with Pinhas's guitar is by far the highlight, sounding like an outtake from Heldon's "Interface" album.
Not a mindblower, but thanks for giving me the chance to hear it...!

Super late to note, but Jean-Louis Rizet of Pôle & Besombes / Rizet engineered this record.

+1 super late... I think Xol (http://www.discogs.com/Video-Liszt-Ektakr%C3%B6m-Killer/release/166220) is without doubt Bernard Xolotl.
Interesting project.

Never heard of this before. The whole album is really fun to listen to and has some great tunes. A keeper, thank you very much!

The (terrible) cover reminds me Heldon Stand By. Could be from the same photograph, I don't know. Quite a strange (but nice) record, mixing electropop (Shutter's Shudders / Fade In Hong Kong, my 2 favorite tracks) and progressive music (The Tube). Another obscure french production, released on a major label (Epic Records). Thanks. Cheers !
