Red Noise (3)

Red Noise (3)

Formed by Patrick Vian (son of the writer Boris Vian) in May 1968, and launched at a 5 day festival "L'Open" (January 1969) they were quoted as "...hardly academic, with an undignified black humour. Red Noise are the premier French underground group, a theatre of the absurd..." Legendary French "pre-punk" collective, said one contributor here on Discogs!
Red Noise were indeed one of the most outrageously creative of early French bands, as evidenced on their sole LP "Sarcelles-Lochères" which is a riotous trip beyond psychedelia, via free-jazz, Pythonesque humour and the unfathomable.
Red Noise went through many line-up changes, and existed through to 1971. Serge Catalano & Francis Lemonnier formed Komintern. Band leader Patrick Vian carried on with another (undocumented) project afterwards and then went solo.
