CRO MAGNON-ZAPP!, CD, 1992, BELGIUM


Maneuvering within somewhat similar R.I.O. parameters to those heard on the Zypressen album that I recent posted, the work on this Belgian unit's debut album is sublimely lovely chamber rock with a strong whiff of both Birdsongs Of The Mesozoic via the tight as a drum pointillistic/systemic arrangements and the aspect of late model Urban Sax and late model Art Zoyd that's focused around eerily chiming key themes, though with a pronounced counter tendency toward folkloric merriment of a vaguely East Euro stripe thats common to a lot of R.I.O and some fantastic sax work with overtones of ROVA styled hocketing call and response.

Second album "Bull?" is better than this one. BTW, it's Cro Magnon and not Cro-Magnon (which is a Japanese band)

I can't find the links to download the actual music for either Cro Magnon release on that blog. Can anyone help?

anonymous-That's because all the content on The Undercover Man Blog was deleted long ago.
It's a ghost ship now with just the text remaining.

Oozlum silently hawks above theundercoverman ghost ship and flies closer and saves two little Cro Magnon boxes that has a signature Bull and Brosella Suite. Available now. Dry and full of chamber absurdia here

Thank you very much!. Both for original Zapp album, as well as the two other albums provided in comments.
This band is very weirdly interesting, and very unique
