This meeting of the French avant-garde (which I’ve been told is a pretty big deal) sees composer and experimenter Pascal Comelade meet Les Liminanas, a group who punctuate the difficult and chilling fuzz of No Wave with irresistible rhythm and the unyielding belief that abstract sounds should be fun first, interesting later. ‘Traite De Guitarres Triole Ctiques’ sounds like it could belong in about a hundred different places in history: it’s noted as being somewhere between cool dude France and cool dude New York, but bits of it could also appear on ‘Doolittle’, and sometimes it sounds sarcastic and silly enough to be the work of a Magnetic Fields side-project.
Mostly though, this is just a bright record of silly, mostly instrumental compositions for whatever you like: the warm basslines and gloopy, old school keyboards of “(They Call Me) Black Sabata” sound like they belong among a high definition version of ‘70s prog, while “You’re Never Alone With A Schizo” uses a bedrock of psychedelia to present folksy banjos and seductive pop vocals. If you’re looking for an unexpected journey that runs as smoothly as possible, then this is the one: at times it’s post-punk, at others adult contemporary, and sometimes it’s as twee as Shugo Tokumaru -- but it never loses its inherent warmness. The ease and joy of Comelade and Les Liminanas’ work is always accentuated -- take “El Vici Birra-Crucis for instance, which is made up of a nonsense keyboard solo and some burning fuzz, but is navigated by a nice bit of bass -- while the noise is just there to do cartwheels. As it should be: weird is wonderful.
