BERROCAL, JAC - 1973-1976-1979
"This luxurious pink Cadillac color box set, 1973-1976-1979, brings together the first three albums of Jac Berrocal -- Musiq Musik (1973), Paralleles (1976), and Catalogue (1979) -- in which countless personalities of the crossover music of the hexagon participate. Musiq Musik (1973): Berrocal's first album, recorded in 1973 with the excessive reverberations of the crypt of the church Saint-Savinien in Sens, is a real notebook of sound travels, of instruments reported by Jac Berrocal and Roger Ferlet during their numerous journeys: Pakistan, Afghanistan, Nepal, India, Jordan, Iraq, Syria, including various instruments such as bells, muezzins, conches, shenaïs, cymbals, and gongs embellished with urban and incongruous sounds: horns, whistles, chickens, harmonium, and washing machine. The idea? Make music together, Jac Berrocal, Roger Ferlet, Dominique Coster. Paralleles (1976): Vince Taylor, the Black Archangel of rock n' roll, agrees to come and record "Rock n' Roll Station", a piece of futuristic clinking of a bicycle wheel. Other sessions contrary to custom, a pigsty with microphones mired in the middle of unruly pigs, towels shaken by Pierre Bastien in the middle of this is a noisy piece "Bric-à-Brac" made in homage to Luigi Russolo's repertoire reorganized by bonuses and unpublished from the same period. Catalogue (1979): Jac Berrocal and his "Marquises of Disorder" make the guitars rattle in primrose-sprayed vomit, patchwork of uncontrollable slows, furious accordion (Claude Parle) and martial rocks. Kind of "Micro-cinemas put end-to-end", a maelstrom of cries and saturation which, paradoxically, an album that is worth the respect of the punks and the contempt of jazz purists. Berrocal is certainly the only French cousin of New York's no wave. Deluxe, rigid box set with three metallic covers and an impressive booklet of photos and unpublished documents; 200 gram vinyl." - Rotorelief .
