Jean-Pierre Graziani, France

Jean-Pierre Graziani - A Dumane. 1979 Disques Vendémiaire.

As mentioned a couple of days ago, I have quite a few new items for the CDRWL that I need to report on. So I'll put away the archives for awhile. This one comes courtesy of SF, one of the CDRWL's folk and electronic specialists.

Graziani sole work offers an interesting electronic oriented album with New Wave / Synth-Pop structure, piano, guitar, and male/female narration and semi-singing. Probably telling a story of some sort, but spoken all in French, it's mostly lost on me. References include Christian Boule, Hydravion, Kennlisch, La Saga de Ragnar Lodbrock, and the second album by Images. Great album cover art. Label is owned by Graziani, who managed to sign a few other artists that I'm completely unfamiliar with.

Priority: none

Thank you Tom,
I really enjoy the album. The back cover says it's the meeting of the texts with the synthesizers, of a Corsican Nationalist and two French musicians...
The lyrics are quite engaging and you are right to assume you would get more out of the record if you understood them.
