BERNARD C




































"Les chants Révolutionnaires"
Year:    1982
Country:    France
City:    Paris
Label:    DDAA
Format:    cassette
Tracks:    9
Time:    45 min.
Genre:           Industrial           Experimental













Originally as cassette recorded in 1982, released a year later on Illusion Productions, by two theatrical French weirdos from within the DDAA orbit. Bernard C's side features his lopsided song-like wanderings, some of which make half-hearted nods toward melody and others (or, some within a single track) lose whatever form they started out with and disintegrate into little fragments of filthy iron dust. Cough! Prince Emile, in his/their (?) only recorded appearance, sound like a classical chamber group that fell into a tree chipper then got out the other side and attempted to play viola with the remnants of their shredded stumps. There is a big what-the-heck-is-this-supposed-to-be factor to this tape, so if you think squinting your eyes and glancing around nervously is fun, then prepare for some entertainment. Everybody else, just wait a minute. Your bus will arrive shortly. In this link here before you to listen to the cassette plus his first single dated from 1981. Some people consider this work nowadays as a true gemm.
