LES RUMEURS DE LA VILLE



RUNE 114

Guigou is one of rock's great unsung drummers, performing with Volapük and Etron Fou for many years. This album grew out of a workshop Guigou held in his home of Avignon. He composed music for saxes, clarinets, cellos, keyboards, guitar, bass & drums, to be played by professional musicians [with all of Volapük as part of the band]. Then he added tapes he had made of "amateur" musicians performing in impromptu situations. This work is a mixture of the compositions for septet plus taped fragments of the amateurs. Neither aspect stands alone, as each - the professional & the enthusiastic amateur - is assimilated into the whole. Great compositions, great playing & a beautiful cover; basically this is a Guigou-led, big-band Volapük record. A brilliant & unique presentation.

Guigou is also a member of Volapük
