Artist: LARD FREE
Title: Gilbert Artmans Lard Free
Format: LP
Label: Wah Wah
Country: Spain
Price: $29.00
"The first album by Lard Free, simply titled Gilbert Artmans Lard Free, is released in 1973 on the Vamp label. It has been recorded and mixed in April that year, the recording session taking place for only 36 hours in a London studio. But thats enough time for the band to showcase the adventurous spirit of Gilbert & Co. Theres drums and sax of jazzy, repetitive inspiration, free-rock guitar licks and an always present AKS synthesizer that produce one of the essential works of Europes musical avant-garde on its time. After this brilliant recorded legacy, Lard Free split in 1978, with Artman dedicating his time to his more successful project Urban Sax. Featuring : Gilbert Artman (drums, piano steinway, vibes), Herve Eyhani (bass guitar, arp synthetizer), Philippe Bolliet (all saxes), Francois Mativet (guitars). Gatefold sleeve." -Wah Wah

Title: III
Format: LP
Label: Wah Wah
Country: Spain
Price: $29.00
"The third and last Lard Free LP is released in 1977 on the Cobra label recorded in two different studios between January and March that same year. Besides some new musicians, another step forward in Artmans constant evolution is the use of the recording studio as an additional instrument that offers a whole lot of possibilities to creative expansion. The results are amazing : under an apparently lineal structure theres thousands of sound brushtrokes that feed themselves back to create a strange and provocative post-industrial picture. Gilbert Artman (orgue, piano, arp synthesizer, vibraphone, drums premier), Xavier Baulleret (guitares), Yves Lanes (synthy-ems), Jean-Pierre Thiraut (clarinette). Includes a 4-page insert of liner notes and a poster on the other side." -Wah Wah

Title: Im Around About Midnight
Format: LP
Label: Wah Wah
Country: Spain
Price: $29.00
"Lard Frees second LP, Im Around About Midnight, was recorded in Paris in a three day session and released in 1975, also on Vamp. There is a totally different line-up from that of the first LP and it features long time friend Richard Pinhas, with whom Artman explores (in his own way) some sound passages of strong Heldon inspiration, although in a less immediate register, building an organic layered sound that emanates a certain shadowy formal beauty. The strong Artman-Pinhas connection is also confirmed by the inclusion on Heldons Third of the track Pale violence under a reverbere, on a different mix and different title, Méchamment rock. Featuring : Gilbert Artman (drums, percussions, vibes, hammond organ, steinway piano, tenor sax), Richard Pinhas (guitars, bass guitar, arp synthetisers, synthi vks 3), Alain Audat (synthi vks 3, tenor sax, clb), Antoine Duvernot (alto sax, flute). Gatefold sleeve." -Wah Wah

Price: $29.00
"Issued on vinyl format for the first time ever, Unnamed is a collection of 1971/1972 Lard Free lost recordings that documents an interesting, primitive period of the band and shows Artman & Co. moving freely in different directions : jazz, noise and the most radical musical improvisation.
