Best Of Vox Populi! + Ethnyc (seven previously unreleased tracks)

  The band Vox Populi! was created at the begining of the 80's in Paris by Axel Kyrou. Together with his friend Pierre Jolivet (aka Pacific 231), he created VP231, an independant music label. In 1983, 7" 'Ectoplasmie' has been edited. At first his music registers in a synthetic, cold and minimal vein, representative of this period. But, after he mets vocalist Mitra (his future wife) and her brother Arash (percussions), coming from Iran, Vox Populi! gets a very unique tint, melting post-industrial, psychedelic and ethnic...

Vox PoPuLi!, Sucre de Pastèque, Unlikely Rcds, C45, 1986

  With Axel, we thought that it would be great to share the ultimate official Vox Populi! release still unvailable on the web : "Sucre de Pastèque" (water-melon sugar), produced in 1986 by english cassette label Unlikely Records (URT101) ran by Robert Cox. That's a pretty idea because it's a very very good one, extremely rare and very brillant experimental/ethnic/psychedelic trip that only VP! can do, that's nobody else. A pure delight, the second recording with Mitra. Axel retrieves a tape and remastered it especialy for us,... [Lire la suite]

Vox Populi!, Live, Excalibur - Paris, 29 March 1988

Today I share an extraordinary document, a live recording of VP! Axel offers me this tape last summer, when this blog doesn't exist yet. He told me that nearly all tracks appear on tapes or compilations, but you've never heard an entire live of VP! don't you ? It's all the interest of this recording as a token of what was Vox Populi! on stage in 1988. It's as if you were there, only few cuts. The sound quality is very good, it's recorded directely from the mixing desk outputs, and digitalisation has been checked by Axel himself. They... [Lire la suite]
