More Info

Material der lange vergriffenen CTHULHU RECORDS - Tapes "Ebats Spirtuels" und "Half Dead Ganja Music", sowie einige unverffentlichte Stcke aus der gleichen Periode, als die bemerkenswerten VOX POPULI mit P.231 zusammenarbeiteten... ein ganz neues Stck schliesst diese Compilation ab.
Was VOX POPULI so besonders gemacht hat, war die gelugene Mischung aus Elektronik und Ethno-Instrumentarium, sowie der betrende Gesang von MITRA KYROU KHALATBARI!

"Extra-ordinary, mystic journey into musical world of these two long-running, legendary french projects. This album was composed from the old, but also completely new material (1986-2007), it includes both studio and live recordings, re-arranged and reworked for your listening pleasure. The first ever Vox Populi! CD after many vinyls and tapes produced in 80-90s. Acoustics and electronics, lyricism and dramatics, traditions and avantgarde. Pacific 231 is the project of Pierre Jolivet, a French musician now residing in Ireland. It came into existence in the early 80s and belonged to the first wave of industrial groups. Recently Pierre got interested in ethnic music finds its extension in the most recent album"Palestine" recorded for Old Europa Cafe in collaboration with Rapoon. Vox Populi! was founded in 1981 by Axel Kyrou and released some remarkable LPs in the 80s, including the collaborations with HNAS and Pacific 231. Also interested in experiments with ethnic and industrial instrumentation, improvising and collages, Vox Populi! creates very rich pieces, drawing on psychedelic and traditional music, but avantgarde and mystical approach as well."
