Noa - Noa (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU Soleil Zeuhl 26-mbs
"Reissue of an obscure underground French album from 1980. NOA features a histrionic female vocalist, piping the French language and enunciating syllables just like another instrument. The music of Noa is of the jazzy Zeuhl variety, with plenty of sax...soaring flute and the expected rhythms of the genre."-Tom Hayes.

"Although the general mood of the album is Zeuhl-influenced (the dark vibe & the female voice that reminds of Eskaton), the main influences claimed by the band are Henry Cow & Art Zoyd. The fact is that the use of the female voice has something musically to do with HC's Dagmar Krause era. Line-up includes guitar, bass, flute, sax, drums, percussions & female vocals. This album, sadly the sole recording of the band, is a real curiosity, a pretty experimental record that could have only come out in France during this period, at the turn of the 70s."

"A music which follows in the footsteps of Jacques Thollot in the intermediate areas between jazz, rock and improvised music. The same liking for a strange atmosphere, obsessional rhythms and refined sounds."-La Discographie du Rock Francais
