Album Review

Les Goths – “Reve De Silence” – [Shadoks]

surferrosa   4/25/2012   A Library, CD

A three piece from Normandy France, 1968. These guys were young factory workers (two of them brothers) turned long haired hippie psych rockers after having seen the Animals play live in the mid 60s. This experience was apparently so life altering and inspiring, that it moved them to pick up the psychedelic, crunched out, garage rock style we all know and love so well. This record is dripping with wha wha, sticky with fuzz and not lacking in bluesy, string savvy freak outs. Vocals are delivered in both French and English, instrumental tracks (5, 8, 9, 10) jam particularly hard and are among my favorites. If you dig the 60s, this will fix your fix. – Surfer Rosa
