News: Patrick Vian's Egg album to be reissued on CD!

Thanks to a tip from reader Achim, we learned that a label called Staubgold will be reissuing Patrick Vian's "Bruits et Temps Analogues" on CD as well as on LP. I had this title in the main list, and just never got around to featuring it. Vian's solo album is a fine 70s electronic styled album that's always been relatively easy to find on vinyl here in the States. I'll probably pick this one up, as I'm sure the CD will add much to the sound. This is our first encounter with the Staubgold label, though they've been around since the late 90's, having been based in both Koln and Berlin, Germany. Currently they've set up shop in the southern French town of Perpignan. Hopefully they'll dig around and release more French obscurities for us!

The label writes: "Staubgold is proud to reissue the one and only solo album of Patrick Vian (Red Noise), originally released in 1976 on the Egg label. The album is available on vinyl in a strictly limited edition of 500 copies and for the first time ever on CD and as a download.

A wonderful and obscure gem of electronic music certain to please the fans of Krautrock, French 70s electronic music and Kosmische Musik. Patrick Vian plays Moog 2C, ARP 2600, Moog Sequencer and piano and gets help from jazz musician Mino Cinelu (who had played with the likes of Gong, Weather Report and Miles Davis) on drums and percussion. Georges Granier adds Fender Rhodes, marimba, noise and scissors. Bernard Lavialle (Ame Son) plays guitar. Together they create a unique hybrid of experimental electronic, jazz and world music. This highly original sound made Steven Stapleton include Patrick Vian to the famous Nurse With Wound list of adventurous music."

Staubgold is one of the oldest and more reliable electronica labels. I think it's managed by those behind the band KLANGWART. So I'm guessing they'll do a nice job with the Vian album.

Yes, I'm thinking you're right about the high quality. Looks to be a really fine label. Thanks Spyros for the comment!
