Absolutely excellent, though totally ignored, no-wave-disco stuff from France in the early eighties. Hector Zazou (famous for his work in Z.N.R. or under his own name) with Mader (Band Apart) did this hillarious collage of speech from Valery Giscard d'Estaing (then president of french republic, matching on elections with François Mitterand… the cover is actualy V.G.E. poster and slogan of this 1981 elections, nothing more nothing left !). Out of the context the words are absurd and surrealistic, on the post-punk disco beat with nasty guitar and some girls on the chorus singing with english accent "Oh tous, oui tous nous sommes giscardiens" (Oh we are all giscardians), gives a great funny musical UFO ! The kling-klong guitar solo at the end, in a typical Arto Lindsay style is the cherry on the top of this excellent side A.
Side B "Thoughts and Maxime of V.G.E" is a blank side, silence…
The whole stuff is loads of fun to say the least, and an excellent "political song" to dance to… A must have !
(Please excuse my horrible non-native english writting, thanks :)
