Michel Potage Collective - Occupé LP 21551
[Alga Marghen]

Michel Potage Collective - Occupé LP 21551
alga marghen presents one of the treasures of the French avant scene of the 1970s, published now for the first time. An ideal parallel to Jac Berrocal cult LP 'Paralleles', the realization of these pieces recorded by Daniel Deshays and produced by d'Avantage in 1977 that also conceived a very elaborated sleeve design, was mysteriously discontinued making this record one of the lost jewels of the French underground.

Together with Michel Potage (voice and various instruments) and Jac Berrocal (trumpet, valve trombone, tibetal oboe, percussions), the same ensemble that recorded Berrocal's 'Paralleles', or Pierre Bastien of Nu Creative Methods fame (bass, tibetan reed instruments, trumpet, voice), the father of French free jazz Bernard Vitet (bugle, trumpet, reed instruments, violin, voice), Roger Ferlet (trumpet, slide trombone, voice), Claude Parle (accordion, reed instruments, voice), Francoise Achard (voice, chant, lao mouth organ, balano, rainstick), the legendary produced and sound engineer Daniel Deshays (voice), poet Jean-Marie Gibbal (voice) and a Ford Break (engine, speed, brakes, light, etc.), everyone is here following Michel Potage vision and enters into a magic sound territory.

Edition limited to 385 copies including an LP-size 8-page booklet with complete lyrics and photos from the recording session.
