Pop Electronique by Cecil Leuter

Remarkable record of 1960’s French electronic library music, of a somewhat experimental bent. Cecil Leuter (whose birth name, implausibly, is Roger Roger) was a busy, ‘proper’ bandleader at the time, but it turns out he had a real knack for crafting wildly unusual electronic miniatures. Pop Electronique is full of them! Reissued on Fifth Dimension.

Cecil Leuter is Roger Roger. Yes Roger's music is hard to come by so this reissue is very welcome. This record is a DJ samplers dream. Some of the songs are just weird electronic sounds and others are a mix of strange moog and reverb sounds mixed with a 60's intrumental garage band sound. He also wrote some interesting material for the theremin. It came out in 1969 and is considered a pioneer recording in the history of electronic music. This wacky early synthesizer music is somewhat an acquired taste.
