Souffle Continu is very excited to present two special vinyl editions of live recordings of French heavy space prog band Heldon -- this 1976 recording and Live in Paris 1975 (FFL 007LP). Heldon took rock music and mixed it with analog synthesizers in a very special and unique way. Recorded live at Le Palace, Paris, 1976, this two-track recording documents the raw, acidic, psychedelic sound of Heldon, consisting at the time of Richard Pinhas, Patrick Gauthier, and François Auger. The fantastic second track, "Distribution Deterritorialisation,'' based on a repetitive synth-line, even deserves to become an instant classic. Plays at 45 RPM. Never before released on vinyl. Pressed on mixed purple and white vinyl; presented in 350g sleeve with obi strip. Limited to 1000 copies.
"Like an inhuman mix of Tangerine Dream's otherworldly journeys into space and time and the finely tuned brawn of The Mahavishnu Orchestra, not to mention featuring practically orgasmic guitar solos that would make Makoto Kawabata blush... building blocks for whole schools of experimental rock music, and one of the few who rarely fail to deliver on the hype." --Pitchfork
