An intriguing admixture of fragmented and/or harmonically distended guitar figures of a vaguely Frith-like demeanor, whispery Japanese vocalese (often recitative), sudden applications of miles deep reverb and sundry other small improvised shadings, all possessing that ineffable x-factor that somehow gels these nebulous probings into an evocatively seamless cohesive entity. Mysterious and frequently beautiful work from this long time French improvisor and one-time member of Gilbert Artman's post-Lard Free art punk outfit Catalogue, perhaps best known nowadays for his collaborations with Keiji Haino. Note: this lengthy CD has been divided into two parts.

Only one comment so far? It must just be me then. This sounds to me like someone who’s invented music over from scratch (and done a really top-flight job of it too). I immediately went into the city try to buy a copy. After pushing pushing pushing I finally found a listing on a database and got a sympathetic store clerk who must have seen the look of desperation in my eyes to try to order it for me. I’m waiting to see if it ever turns up. I've downloaded all the other related stuff from your site (Catalogue etc) and it’s all been great. How can I have never heard of this guy?

Requests are superfluous, whatever you post will be great, but: Pauvros apparently made a record with Arto Lindsay, is that a possibility?
