Chok Rock, Big City Loser

EP, Warp
re-release 2 May 05

The story of Gael Baillier involves a one gig band, an homicidal
ex business partner, Paris by night, and mutant electronica. 

There seems to be a French tradition of funky, inventive electronica
that doesn't attempt to squeeze itself into some existing genre in
order to get radio play or whatever. This isn't all electronica
though which just goes to illustrate the point further. The last
track on this EP is actually a mixture of soft balladic singing
and a melodic discourse.

It's all pretty nice.
