Soleil Zeuhl

BBI is Philippe Bussonet on bass (Magma's magnificent bassist since 1995, as well as one of the powers behind One Shot), Jean-Claude Buire on drums (drummer for Offering in the late 1980s) and Laurent Imperato on guitar (a founding member of Xaal, although he had left by the time they started recording.
This was Philippe's side-band before co-forming One Shot and this studio work was recorded in 1996, but never released until now. They are a power trio that mixes the most 'rock' aspects of One Shot...

The release of this great jazz/rock/Zeuhl album on CD is a cause of great joy for me personally. This is one of the albums I've long waited to appear on CD and also one of the ones that I most wanted Soleil Zeuhl to tackle. This is a nonet of vibes, trumpet, saxes, trombone, violin, flute, bass, drums and female vocals. Originally a double lp set that was recorded in 1980, this has obvious influences from Magma, especially circa 1001 Centigrades, Tony Williams, Soft Machine and European jazz/rock. Serge....

Limited quantity available at this special price. When these copies are gone, it goes back to $16.00!!!

A great, Los Angeles five piece who always tear the house down in performance, Corima take their cues from the mighty Magma and are unabashedly a very Magmoid zeuhl band.
They take that and give it a youthful energy and make it into something their own. Something borrowed, yes, bu

A great 5 piece, who simply tore the house down at ProgDay in 2013 and were one of the stunning highlights of the festival. This is the music they played there. Hugely recommended!

I saw Corima about in 2008, but at the time, they were a duo and...

“A band singing in their created own language (named “Kolöniel”), does that remind you another band ? Yes, you’re right THAT Kobaïan band led by a famous French drummer! DAI KAHT story begins in Finland when

Meriadec Gouriou – diatonic accordion, vocals, percussion
Rudy Blas – guitar
‘Teddy Bear – trumpet, bugle

This is a weird one; it’s definitely influenced by Magma, although it isn’t in any way a copy; not with diatonic accordion, trumpet and guitar!

“By mixing the sounds of his diatonic accordion, his voice, his percussions with those of the electric guitar of Rudy Blas (guitarist of Magma) and the trumpet of Teddy bear, Mériadec Gouriou has created a musical universe apart and.

“Loomings was born under the impetus of Jacopo Costa, an Italian musician living in Strasbourg, France. Thanks to the vitality of the local music scene, he has the opportunity to realize his creations with the help of several musicians with varied artistic backgrounds.
The voices of Maria Denami and Clara Weil - one from the lyric repertoire, the other rooted in contemporary music - add to the jazzy groove of Nicolas Klee (electric bass) and Nils Boyny (keyboards), as well as to the percussion and...

First-ever reissue of this obscure & rare jazz/rock album, includes a bonus live track that's nearly 20' long!

"Reissue of the band's sole album, recorded in 1977. This a jazz-rock album with few zeuhl elements, references are more likely to...

"First CD of this French band that has recently opened for Magma at Bourg les Valence. A superb recording, heavily influenced by Magma (sound, compositions & spirit). Very much recommended...

"Olive Mess is a band from Latvia (ex-USSR) that plays a very original progressive music. The line-up features guitar ( electric, classic, baroque ), bass, keyboards, drums, occasional sax, and a superb soprano female singer. Olive Mess was founded by...

"Reissue of a rare as hell lp from 1978 (reaches $1,000 + on eBay) issued in micro quantity only in Corsica (a French Island located between France & Italy). Strongly rooted into mediterranean culture, Rialzu's sole recording is a highly original fusion of progressive, Corsican songs & zeuhl sounds (track 1 starts with a glimpse at Magma by playing briefly the opening section of Kohntarkhosz!).
Both music & vocals evoke the classic Italian progressive school. The original lp had 3 tracks, this...

"This is the band's 7th full album - they have been around for nearly 30 years now and have always been difficult to classify, playing a weird mix of electronics, 80's RIO & post-punk music. Just like Ptose, another French band of the era, they have...
