Vos Voisins - Holocauste A Montreal vinyl lp (due to size and weight, this price for the USA only. Outside of the USA, the price will be adjusted as needed)

This includes the original lp jacket (the one that got them in trouble with them on the cover of a faked "Allo Police" (Quebec's tatty scandal rag, ala National Enquirer, but a lot worse).

"Keyboardist/composer Jacques Perron, drummer Pierre Ringuet, guitarist Serges Vallieres and bassist Andre Parenteau met while accompanying Robert Charlebois, Louise Forestier and Yvon Deschamps. In 1970, they formed VOS VOISINS in collaboration with lyricist Marcel Sabourin.
In 1971, the group released their only album. The music is an eclectic mix of hard rock and ballads full of humoristic lyrics, and progressive instrumentals. A real masterpiece ! One of the songs, “The Main Monster”, became a local radio hit. Louise Forestier sings on three tracks.”

"Keyboardist J Perron and drummer P Ringuet had worked together with local celebrities and then with Les Enzymes (L Forestier and Y Deschamps) before hooking up with Guitarist Vallieres and bassist Parenteau and making Vos Voisins (your neighbours).
The group made a huge scandal with the releases of their debut (and sole album) with its artwork depicting the scandal paper Allo Police (one of the trashiest ever "newspapers" to ever exist on Earth) and their album had to be taken away from the record shelves after a week or so, after lawsuits...
Well the group survived it by changing their artwork and album name, as soon as they could, but failing to capitalize on their "coup", even though one track Monstre De La Main got quite a bit of radio airplay. Needless this original artwork album is worth a small fortune.
Musically the standard prog quartet developed an organ-driven hard prog laced in with plenty other influences, with drummer Ringuet and keyboardist Perron writing all the music, but getting extra help for the lyrics." - Progarchives.com
