EL-G - Tout Ploie LP

$ 10.00

el-g is Laurent Gérard, a French musician living in Brussels. Tout Ploie is his first album on vinyl. Using electronics - but sounding very analog, el-g through plunders French pop styles to piece togther great dreamy psychedelia.  David Keenan of Volcanic Tongue called it “Ass-flatteningly great” and said it “combines the decadent French ballad style of Serge Gainsbourg with warped acid folk settings, Industrial electronics and the kinda schizophrenic approach to genre that defines much of Thierry Muller and Philippe Doray’s work.” Clive Bell at the Wire said él-g’s”freak flag is exhilarating”. And the few people who got the record from me, wrote and asked for more. After spin number 50, I said to myself, “Damn, there’s a whole lotta people on this side of the Atlantic that are gonna miss out on this demon, one of the best records of the last five years, me thinks.” So I wrote él-g and Kraak and asked if I could do an American pressing and they said “Sure good thing” and here it is. So what you get is all the above – with guest performances by the lovely Charlene Darling and Ignatz and Phil Todd of Ashtray Navigations. Besides being el-g, Laurent is in Opéra Mort, Naked Hug, and the Reines d'Angleterre trio with  Ghédalia Tazartès. (SS046)
