7 - HELDON - HELDON IV: AGNETA NILSSON - (LP) 
BUREAU B


Agneta Nilsson opens with a mind-paralyzing track that proves stillness can have a pulse. "Perspective I" spends ten minutes poring through tectonic layers of heavy sound, piling everything so thick that the song becomes like quicksand for your brain. Its one of the most daunting works in the Heldon catalog, made all the more impressive by how simple it is. Its just sounds put together and turned up. Its the vital alchemy of Pinhass wizardry, deployed with maximum force.As on other early Heldon albums, the rest of Agneta Nilsson is diverse in a nearly contrarian way. Each track refuses to mimic its predecessor in a way that feels rebellious, like a child running away from home. This is true despite the fact that three of the four pieces are actually chapters of "Perspective," partners in a thematic whole. "Each one is a different point of view on the same field," explains Pinhas. "Different parts, different arrangements, but with a full concept in place." Its not easy to divine that concept in these pieces, but their sibling nature has a subconscious effect.Pinhas parlayed Heldons change of direction into three more adventurous albums in the 70s, and simultaneously spurred himself toward a solo career that continues to prod and probe the sonic universe today, over 40 years since he began. It would be wrong to say this album was the big bang of this singular career; the seeds of were planted years before, and every work Pinhas has been involved with sprouts more sounds and ideas that can grow into their own branches. But Agneta Nilsson is one of the most convincing pieces of evidence that Pinhas in incapable of sitting still.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Perspective I (10:26) 02. Perspective Ii (3:13) 03. Perspective Iii (10:48) 04. Intermède & Bassong (2:59) 05. Perspective Iv (21:46)

9 - HELDON - LIVE IN METZ '77 - (LP) 
BAMBALAM


RSD 2018 release. Richard Pinhas, the founder of '70s legends Heldon, is one of France's best known experimental musicians and is a key figure in development of rock music fusing with electronic music. During the 1977 tour Heldon played 3 never released tracks. These titles have also never been recorded since and were thought to be lost forever. But luckily they were found recently. The sound is rough, but it's a rare document, so here's the chance to finally hear them.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Postlife (unreleased) 02. Antelife (unreleased) 03. Prelife (unreleased) 04. Marie Virginie C (final) 05. Rhizosphère

10 - HELDON - STAND BY - (LP) 
SOUFFLE CONTINU


In 1979 when 'Stand By' was released, the press had already labeled Heldon as the first electric punk group. There is nothing silly in that, Heldon having quickly moved away from the spacey German influences which were not to Richard Pinhas' taste. Limited to 700 copies on sea blue vinyl.

11 - HELDON - UN REVE SANS CONSEQUENCE SPECIALE - (LP) 
SOUFFLE CONTINU


Reissue of Heldon's fifth album, originally released in 1976 on the Cobra label. Intense, violent, bitter, abrasive, uncompromising: this recording is in keeping with the four predecessors, prefiguring both industrial- and post-rock, showing once again that the early references to "guerrilla electronics" (and to William S. Burroughs) were not in vain! Listening to this album it is easy to understand why Merzbow, Wolf Eyes and Oren Ambarchi, in the 2000s wanted to record with Richard Pinhas! It must also be noted that the often-made comparison between Heldon/Richard Pinhas and King Crimson/Robert Fripp, while still pertinent, is insufficient, as 'Un Rêve Sans Consquence Spciale' breaks much new ground beyond those horizons. Limited to 700 copies on clear purple vinyl.
