Yog Sothoth, France


Yog Sothoth - s/t. 1984 Cryonic.

Still on track for our announcement tomorrow. In the meantime, I'll need to pull in a "gap filler" from the main list to cover today's post. Now this is an album where my mediocre rating is in the minority. Many of my friends and peers seem to enjoy it. My notes upon hearing Yog Sothoth were "Like a more free jazz version of the 80s Zeuhl based efforts by Yoch'ko Seffer or Bernard Paganotti. Can get a bit annoying in places." I've seen comparisons to that most dark of Zeuhl adopters Shub Niggurath, but I just don't hear it myself. They share an affinity for Lovecraft and that's about it.

There are a handful of Cryonic albums that didn't make the transition to Musea. Most notably the Komintern LP reissue. The more radical the album, the less likely it saw a CD on Musea.

All the same, many folks want to see this on CD. Probably would make sense to see it reissued on a label like Soleil Zeuhl (though I personally could think of many other albums in the genre that are more deserving).

Priority: none
