* Special edition with bonus 7". Long out of print, few copies available * Hinterzimmer Records is extremely proud to release one of Ghédalia Tazartès' major works of the last 20 years, Ante-Mortem. Although simply named 1 to 23, the album bears a collection of very diverse tracks, a couple of them connected in a thematical frame, others simply standing for themselves. What holds them all together is first and all Tazartès’ archetypical voice. One could say that Ante-Mortem contains some of his harshest ever tracks as well as a couple of his most humorous ones. Generally it is more than exciting to hear that some parts of Ante-Mortem could as well have been created around the same time as his masterpiece Une Eclipse Totale De Soleil – his music sounds as timeless as it did 30 years ago. Nobody else ever sounded like Tazartès. Ante-Mortem sounds like Tazartès at its best.
