ASPRO 5000 - S/T (1993)

I quote (that's easier !) : "Founded at college time, at the end of 1986 in Bordeaux by Bruno Lacaussague (drums), Bruno Aymar (guitar) and Pierre Poirier (voice), ASPRO 5000 is considered to be the first hardcore band of the city. Influenced by the international punk hardcore of the Eighties and the beginning of grindcore, DRI, DISCHARGE, NAPALM DEATH, scandinavian punk, French of KROMOZOM 4, RAPT, etc… The band makes some noisy and chaotic appearances for confidential gigs (the countryside of Angouleme, celebrates music, pubs and rotten festivals of Bordeaux) with the will to hit hard and fast, to saturate the amplifiers, to radically dissociate with the useless rock local scene of the time and without being caught either with serious in the lyrics. With the arrival of Romain Quinsac (guitar) and the departure of Bruno (guitar), the band temporarily changes name into A.C.M.E and takes more structured orientation. Followed by several gigs at the Jimmy, Blueberry, Tonneau, l’Ecume des jours for the first parts of BRAINDEATH, HOAX, PLEUM, RWA, PLAIES MOBILES, SUFFOCATION, etc…

The band records its second demo tape in 1989 and sold it at fifty copies. A title for compilation EP vinyl Panx will follow. After a change in pastiche grindcore (CLIMAXIZATOR), the band split up in 1990, due to musical divergences. Pierre (voice) will join ESCARE, Romain (guitar) will found DROWNED and Bruno (drums) will begin a new project with Yvon (Corbeaux du Reichstag) who will become GLU, Pierre will join project later. In 1993, a posthumous EP was produced including tracks of the two demo’s tapes and a live recorded anyhow which will be sold-out in 6 months. The band has been never reformed and will be it probably never." Source...

Another obscure artist, from Antibes, who leaves us a unique 7'. The A side is a cover version (in the style of Plastic Bertrand), of Gaston Ouvrard's "Je ne suis pas bien portant" (I'm not in good health), written in 1932.

I quote : "Super rare french private funky rock with heavy drums, growling organ and dirty guitars, pressed on the Kiosque D’Orphée label, which was a kind of make yr own label vinyl service, pressings rarely exceeded 100 copies, usually much less. Be sure to check the audio till the end for the freakout. [...] Very rare and obscure item." Source... More infos welcome !
