About this item

Originally released in January 1980, the second album from (Crammed founder) Marc Hollander’s band was the first record bearing the Crammed logo (although the label only really started to exist at the end of that year). More intense and experimental than the first Aksak Maboul album (yet often as playful), “Un peu...” was recorded with a band comprising revered UK musicians Fred Frith & Chris Cutler and contains complex written section, free improv, and a wild variety of elements. If you're looking for a post-punk experience as abstract as it is angular, then you're in luck. Boasting free-jazz horns, stuttering rhythms, abrasive guitar and the occasional thrash moment, "Un Peu" is far from an easy listen, and that's a very good thing. The first reissue on vinyl of Aksak Maboul’s classic 1980 LP. It includes a booklet with various documents, as well as previously-unreleased recordings (available via a digital download code).
