- Je Sus Vivant, Mais J'Ai Peur De Gilbert Deflez by Gilbert Deflez
8/10 Brett Staff review, 12 August 2010
Finders Keepers have served up a bit of treat with this one. Without the time to fully figure it all out, I'm getting the impression that this was a studio-based project initiated in the early/mid 1970s by Gilbert Deflez, a radio personality known for his sci-fi readings, who got a group of musicians together to jam some backing tunes to suit his tones before then cutting, splicing, speeding up and slowing it all down in the studio until the result started to resemble something of a spacey, experimental lounge-prog opus. The first track is a particular beauty with its bassy repetition calling to mind everyone from Magma to King Crimson to Om and it's no surprise that it continues to pop up throughout the record (in part or in full) as a sort of anchor point around which everything else revolves. Often I find that the stuff on the label's a little bit too kitsch for me but this one really hits a sweet spot between exotic weirdness and darker-toned musical invention.. I wish I knew what they were all talking about but then again, sometimes it's best not to know! Tres bon!
