The Llamps

The Llamps

    The debut album by Perpignan's finest, featuring Pascal Comelade on piano. The Llamps' members met each other in the surroundings of Perpignan a few years ago. Moved by The Velvet Underground, Ennio Morricone, Noir Desir and L'Agram, the four of them created an alliance between heritage and modernity, pop and hip hop, country and psychedelics, all of it in Catalan, French and English.

    Their debut album is a resolutely modern version of 60s garage rock: simultaneously psychedelic and acidic, it introduces the listener to a sombre and poetic universe of fuzz guitars, tortured keyboards, bursting trumpets and tattered pianos, while a beguiling female voice sings in English, French or Catalan.

    Pascal Comelade

    Les Mémoires D'un Ventriloque (Chansons 1981 / 2018)

      "Les Mémoires d'un Ventriloque" ("memories of a ventriloquist") is the long-awaited anthology of Comelade's collaborations with singers, recorded between 1981 and 2018, and featuring Robert Wyatt, PJ Harvey and Jac Berrocal among many others.

      Almost all tracks are rare, have only been released on cds or compilations, have been re-worked by Pascal Comelade for this release, or have never been released before.


      Barry says: This treasure trove of rarities and unheard gems from Pascal Comelade sees PC and a whole host of legendary collaborators work through a varied set of percussive numbers, richly evocative synthwork and gorgeous plaintive piano in equal measure. Brilliant avant pop and instrumental oddness.

      Ever since she migrated from pitching editors on the little-known music of Robert Nesta Marley to becoming one of the foremost chroniclers of the perfect storm of reggae, punk, hip hop and afro-beat, the London-born, New York-based Goldman has made documenting music her primary life work. But between 1979-82, Goldman was also a working musician, creating songs that, years later, would be sampled by The Roots and Madlib. These rare grooves are now collected for the first time on 'Resolutionary', courtesy of Staubgold Records.

      'Resolutionary' takes us through Vivien's first three musical formations: first as a member of experimental new wavers The Flying Lizards; next as a solo artist, with her single "Launderette," featuring post-punk luminaries; and then as half of the Parisian duo Chantage, with Afro-Parisian chanteuse Eve Blouin. Goldman's synthesis of post-colonial rhythms and experimental sounds are threaded together by her canary vocal tones and female-centred themes. Her eclectic musical crew included PiL's John Lydon, Keith Levene and Bruce Smith; avantgardists Steve Beresford and David Toop; Aswad's George Oban: The Raincoats' Vicky Aspinall; the mighty Robert Wyatt; Zaire's Jerry Malekani; Manu Dibango's guitarist; and Viv Albertine, then of her good friends, the Slits. The majority of the tracks were produced by dubmaster Adrian Sherwood, and 'Resolutionary' channels the history of a time when the bon-vivant voice of music was in the air, and Vivien Goldman was its eyes, ears, and mouth. When she wasn't writing, broadcasting or filming - or even when she was - Vivien always sang. She sang in a lilting, clear-toned soprano honed during childhood, when she and her two sisters would harmonize with their violinist father. Spend even a little time with Vivien, and she is likely to burst into song.

      "The Punk Professor" began her singing career in the late '70s, doing backup with Neneh Cherry and Ari-Up (the Slits) on Sherwood records by reggae artists, including Prince Far I. It was a time of musical fermentation, collaboration, and experimentation - and of post-punk boundary breaking.
