A classic cut of outsider French disco from the ‘70s cult hero Bernard Fevre. Cosmos 2043 brings to mind the ‘90s techno of the Rephlex lot. Funny that, since they were the ones to rediscover the work of this Parisian pioneer. Get to the source of their plunder here. Out on vinyl LP from Sound Obsession.

7/10 Laurie Staff review, 03 June 2015

Some extreme space fantasy electronic things here. Apparently these are forgotten 70s space disco tunes from the hand and brain of pioneer Bernard Fevre, but they’re more like the soundtrack to a spaghetti western space opera or something. Music of the future that’s actually from the past and all that crap.

Ghost Box fans will be all over this one, as well as fans of library music and obscure synth soundtracks. There’s drama, there’s cheese, there’s wonder and standoffs. Imagine Jean Michel Jarre and Vangelis being conducted by Listening Center. Sweeping jupiter string sounds collide with abrupt key changes and imitations of plucked and pizzicato violins. If Ian heard this, he would be unsure as to imagine his beloved shiny ships of Star Wars or the ‘silly’ Lord of the Rings goblin tunnels, which is a conundrum we would all love to observe. Apparently space slug mafia bosses are OK, but wizards are not. Hmm.

This isn’t as huge a leap as the press seems to be making out; there were plenty of synth things exploding around 1977. Tangerine Dream would have a thing or two to say about this, it being incredibly likely that they let Fevre borrow their synths to make this. So yeah I think you get the picture by now, old-school melodic synth music melding fantastic wonder and absurdity.
