Do Den Haag Church (LP)
"A french trio called France, using drums, bass and amplified hurdy-gurdy. They perform only live, in the middle of the audience - turned in to face each other - full on smoke machines and strobes. And they play only one ‘song’ for the duration of their hour-long set. And it’s the most transfixing live experience of intense physical and mental focus. The distorted hurdy gurdy plugs France’s sound into the country’s history of folk music and popular festivities, of communal trance and immersive p…

Meltdown of Planet Earth (LP)
Tip! France is a trio from the Occitane region in France. The trio consists of Jeremie Sauvage on electric bass, Mathieu Tilly on drums, and Yann Gourdon on amplified hurdy-gurdy.  The sound of "Meltdown Earth" is akin to the aural experiments done by Tony Conrad and Faust with their "Outside the Dream Syndicate" LP released in the mid-70's.  It's long form drone music that has more in common with the DIY brunt of Cromagnon (ESP-Disk) than a more academic monocle stance of museum minimalism. Thi…

Far Out Far West (LP, single sided)
The sickest French band, a trio called France, drums, bass and amplified hurdy-gurdy. They only performs live, in the middle of the audience - turned in to face each other - full on smoke machines and strobes. And they play only one ‘song’ for the duration of their hour-long set. And it’s the most transfixing live experience of intense physical and mental focus, and there is something of early rave too, the togetherness, the energy, the euphory.

Ott (2LP)
Limited to 300 vinyl version live at Ottfest 2014. France set out for a wild mesmerizing revelry of sound. The result is one of their best recordings to date. Imagine Tony Conrad & Faust reincarnated as a french trio in 2014, using only a minimal drum kit, bass and hurdy-gurdy to drone you into another dimension. The music of France is built around the idea that a circular rhythm section combined with the trance-inducing riffs of the hurdy-gurdy can generate an endless series of (micro)tonals va…

Creatively recycled influences result in intense shows with pounding overtones and repetitive pulsing rhythm…

Electric Zoi
A new Cdr from the legendary France recorded at the Bourse du Travail in Saint Etienne in March 2013. This live set is more than 70 minutes long and truly spaced out! France's massive sound bleats mournfully, endlessly; rising, breathing, sighing, screaming, but without ceasing: relentless. A must!!!

Deux lives
Europe’s best kept secret comes from south of France, somewhere between the Rhone Alpes region and the Massif Central. Now, If you are wondering how the traditionnal music from there could meet La Monte Young’s “Theatre of ethernal music” in a very abnormal ‘rock’ band, you must hear the sound of France, the incredible project of Jeremie Sauvage (bass), Mathieu Tilly (drums) and Yann Gourdon (electrified hurdy-gurdy).The music of France is built around the idea that a circular rhythm section com…
