YOG SOTHOTH "Yog Sothoth" LP 1984 (France)



From the land of MAGMA, VORTEX and ART ZOYD, comes YOG SOTHOTH, revisiting classic styled jazz and giving it a darkened treatment baptized in the new music stylisms. YOG SOTHOTH owes inspiration to the above mentioned bands, though giving a lighter, more playful approach to their grim, outwardly treatment of jazz or classical music.

The album opener "Nekrosis", sets the mood in a jazzy Rock In Opposition style that evolves into a playful be-bop to conclude in an early VORTEX gone electronic twist. "Maint Reve Vesperal" that closes the first side is a creepy UNIVERS ZERO turning free jazz hybrid that ends in a calming respite. All second side is taken by the crescendo of "Fou: L' Art Noir" shifting endlessly from MAGMAoid intensity, to jazzy outbursts of pure controlled chaos, then to introspective ART ZOYD influenced progressivisms and all with a unique French sense of humor. A fresh and vital potpourri of eclecticism.

Get it here.

Along these lines, there is also an album by a band called Human. Would you happen to have this one?

You are talking of "Un Certain Pays" from 1985? I do have it and I shall seek my vinyl in my chaotic basement, to rip it and upload it in the near future.

A request: The 12" of The Russians Are Coming by Berlin Express... specifically with the track "The 4-08 to Paris"... Thanks for all of the amazing discoveries and keep it up!

Thanks, Spacefreak. Yes, it's Un Certain Pays. I also tried ripping my copy a few years ago, but I am ceratinly no expert in converting LP to digital.

It's a good disc that people who come to this blog would enjoy.
