Aksak Maboul - Onze Danses Pour Combattre La Migraine CD

SKU 28-CRDC101.2
This original generation Rock In Opposition classic has been unavailable for some time. A MUST own.

This is one of the albums that headed many, many people's 'please issue this on CD' list, including mine. This was the first album of two by Aksak Maboul (later changed to Aqsak Maboul, just to fool people and now changed by to Aksak for its CD reissue), which really wasn't a band, but just a studio project, mostly consisting of Mark Hollander-piano, Farfisa organ, Fender Rhodes piano, alto sax, bass clarinet, clarinets, circa 1977 primitive drum machine, etc. with Vincent Kenis-guitars, bass, piano, accordion and a few other guests on voice, guitars, etc.

This is a completely tuneful and charming mixture of European folk music, Canterbury tendencies, proto-R.I.O., minimalism, the early 20th century French composers such as Satie translated into progressive rock, and much much more.

This 1977 album comes extremely highly recommended by me personally and I am the guy who grabbed the first copy that came in the door...

A thoroughly fantastic album. I can't even describe it because it is so much fun but at the same time it is cerebral as hell due to the extreme musicianship of everyone involved. My highest recommendation.
