OPHIUCUS - S/T (1971)

French band Ophiucus was formed back in 1971, consisting of brothers Alain and Bernard Labacci, Jean-Pierre Pouret and Michel Bonnecarrere. This quartet opted to have their base of operations in the small town of Flagy, where they wrote material that was deemed interesting enough to land them a deal with Barclay Records. Their debut album Ophiucus was issued the same year, but a planned English version of this album was shelved. These alternate language versions would later surface as bonus tracks on reissues.

Ophiucus issued one more album, Salade Chinoise, in 1973. There are no records of activities from them after this point, and it is assumed that they disbanded soon after. (Source).

A few days ago, Cameleon Records reissued 300 copies of this excellent and very hard to find 7", originally out in 1982 on Le Kiosque D'Orphée (KO/82.0702). Repulse was a band from Quimper (Cardiff in fact), and played a fuzzy low-fi garage psych punk (what else ?)... More infos here.
