Following Jim's post of the first and second Catalogue albums "Antwerpen Live" and "Penetration" a while back, here's the utterly fantastic third album from this brilliantly anarchic supergroup of stalwart iconoclasts. While their debut featured a largely improvised live dialogue between Jac Berrocal and Jean-Francois Pauvros, their two follow-up releases would find them a radically conceptually altered three piece with the inclusion of one of the greatest and most radical artists to ever emerge from the French musical underground: Gilbert Artman (Lard Free, Urban Sax). At this point, their music veers off into the most wonderful of no-mans-lands between smirkily arch post punk gesture and improv rupture in a way that aligns them in many ways with Alesia Cosmos, this swan song a masterpiece of intuitive weirdness and jovial post punk song structure molestation.

I heard a track by this group on late-nite radio back in '85/'86 and it has stuck in my mind ever since, though I have never seen any release by them. Until now that is! Thanks loads.
