Ada Le Fol - Les Années D'Errance (1980)
The one and only album from this French band.
The band was a quintet with a lineup of guitars, harmonica, bass, percussion, keyboards, drums and French vocals.
I know absolute nothing about this band. This album showed up in my to-do review list and reviewed it will be.
..... Which is easier said than done.....
What hits the listener first is this manic French vocals. Vocals which is a mix of shouting and singing. I do not speak French so everything here is lost on me.
The music is a mix of pop, vaudeville, French symph prog and avant-garde rock.
These forty minutes is very varied and feels like a lunatic asylum for those of us not speaking French. The music is that esoteric.
The quality is not good at all and it is struggling to get up to decent. A couple of songs are decent....
.... But do not bother about finding this album somewhere. It is close to being a turkey.
