Dominique Grimaud was a member of an historical French underground group called Camizole. This group of mainly self-taught musicians started in the seventies as a vocal ensemble progressively introducing a growing number of instruments that gave them the possibility to create an unique anarchic musical chaos. Their original sound could be juxtaposed with Faust , Lard Free or even Urban Sax . Well, you will find the original spirit of Camizole in this work. The title “Broken Saxophones” gives you a correct clue of what you will find inside: "King Sax" declined in a big variety of moods, sometimes raw, sometimes filtered, sometimes groaning, sometimes subtle and harmonic but always obstinately broken. Very important is also the work of Veronique Vilhet with her percussions giving an unconventional rhythmical support to the evolution of all wind instruments. The two hosts are also quite important : Jacky Dupety (saxophones on one track) who was one of the original members of Camizole and David Fenech (guitar on one track and pre-master work on the LP) who played with nearly all the fathers of French underground of the seventies (Jacques Berrocal, Pascal Comelade, Ghedalia Tazartes, Pierre Bastien…). The past and the present of French out of standard music. This Lp is a proof of how you can produce a real new unconventional sound nowadays without following the alternative music mainstream.
