Meltdown Of Planet Earth (LP)

Label: Standard In-Fi

Format: LP

Genre: Experimental

Preorder: due on/around October 15th


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. This band conjures more Stooges (L.A. Blues) than Theater of Eternal Music.  One could say, it's the logical extension of what Spacemen 3 were doing with their "extended nod music", but France seem to bring the dirt, earth, and mineral of the Occitane region to their sound
Originally meant to be a 150 copies run destined for wholesale to distributors and shops. 75 copies were lost in shipping somewhere in France... never to be found. This edition (300 copies) rescues this significant LP for the new wave of French savant garde
