KOMINTERN-LE BAL DU RAT MORT, LP, 1971, FRANCE, NWW LIST




One of the most legendary of French underground rock bands, Komintern were part of that post-May of '68 armada of arch
iconoclasts that first established French rock of the era as an unsurpassed force for radicalism, a lineage that would include the likes of Red Noise, Fille Qui Mousse, Martin Circus, Magma, and Moving Gelatine Plates amongst others. Komintern's particular breed of sonic malarky comes couched in a frothy effervescence and jolliness that can initially mask just how extraordinary their achievement is, at one time or another musically touching on everything from early Gong-like whimsy to chanson and from Moving Gelatine Plates-style post-Canterbury motion to Red Noise-like Dadaist piss-takery. A work of timeless genius.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you. The Red Noise post some while back gave me what has become one of my absolute favorite albums of all fucking time, and now this! More revolutionary French insanity, pleeeeeaaase.

Thanks a lot ! I had the vinyl in the seventies but lost it, and here you come with that !
Now le Maire de Tours is dead, but we've got much worse politicians in France, and nothing like KOMINTERN to spit on their faces ...Merci beaucoup !
