Out of stock

Obscure 1970's French underground band cantered around Robert Diaz and Florence Leroy. Other members have included Armand Miralles and Kristof Temple. Feeling like a mix of Etron Fou Leloublan and Faust (in acoustic mode that is), with hints of Albert Marcoeur, Red Noise, it is full of invention and typically French eccentric touches. It was also much touted by Chris Cutler (of Henry Cow fame) at the time as the French Faust.

Double CD retrospective of this amazing « mysterious » underground French band including 3 complete full albums + bonus material !!! Booklet 16 pages, liner notes (Heratius-Armand Mirallès story) + rare photos. A superb remastered editon, it sounds fantastic !!!ù

Disc 1 : Heratius complete 70s recordings with their 2 albums : «Gwendolyne» the legendary and cult 1978 album, scarce and a true lost jewel of the French rock which has never been reissued until today after more than 35 years  + the unreleased rare second album «Les Boniments», their best so far and Heratius masterpiece! Very recommended for fans of French 70s, Red Noise, Fille Qui Mousse, Znr, ETRON FOU LELOUBLANC, Henry Cow, Faust, Residents, Henri Chopin

Disc 2 : Armand Mirallès solo album « L'APRES-MIDI CHAUD »  (complete version) : Cold Wave Synth Pop gem from FRANCE 1984/1985 ! Unique. Original sound source : cassette tape (never published) : this is 30 years after the first official edition, new remaster (Available also on Vinyl LP !)

Cat. number: Fractal 800
Year: 2014
