First official vinyl reissue of original cassette ' Fondation - Le Vaisseau Blanc '.
 
Fantastic cosmic, space, ambient and experimental music from mysterious French duo Annanka Raghel and Ivan Coaquette (formerly of Spacecraft and Musica Elettronica Viva). Originally released in 1983 as a limited edition cassette of only 500 copies on Camouflage label; this ranks up there with anything by Ash Ra Tempel, Agitation Free, Heldon or Richard Pinhas. Incredibly evocative and highly recommended.

Historic moment - a lost piece of the puzzle of the wondrous french avant-garde. This official reissue comes in a double album gatefold sleeve with archives from Ivan Coaquette collages.
 
Limited to 500 copies.
Bonus : comes also with an insert with trippy photo by France Annanka Raghel herself and brief description of Fondation band.

The words are taken from the short story "Le Vaisseau Blanc", (original title: "The Mysterious Ship"), written by Lovecraft and translated in french.
