Plat Du Jour - Plat Du Jour (1977)
The one and only album from this French band.
The band was quintet with a lineup of saxophone, guitars, bass, drums, percussion, keyboards and vocals.
Two guest musicians supplied percussion and vocals.
This album is an obscure album indeed. It is also regarded as a lost gem and is highly rated.
It is thirty-five minutes long.
The music is also very, very eclectic.
Take Soft Machine at their album Four, add a lot of King Crimson and some jazzy avant-garde prog. Add the normal French weirdness too and their disregard for the anglo-american music standard rules.
The music is really weird with some half-acoustic guitars and saxophones. It is also pretty compelling listening and this album is a kind of a one-off.
It is also a good album because the quality is good and the originality is high. Check out this album.
