LES BATTERIES "Noisy Champs" (FRA, 1986)


First LP from LES BATTERIES, an improvisation outfit, initially trio of master percussion-man GUIGOU CHENEVIER (Etron Fou Leloublan) with other two drummers, CHARLES HAYWARD ( This Heat) and RICK BROWN (V-Effect, Curlew).
Apart from drums'n'drums'n'drums, a little saxophone is played sporadically by Guigou, while Charles, recalling his "songwriting" side, sings some lyrics with that delightful "untalented" style, found also in his solo works of that era.

RICK BROWN - drums, vocals
GUIGOU CHENEVIER - drums, sax
CHARLES HAYWARD - drums, keyboard, vocals, lyrics

produced by Ferdinand Richard,
released by AYAA disques, Reims, France


tracks:
A. Noisy Champs, Sunday & Dimanche, Identity Parade, Polar, Post-polar, Dernier Solo Avant L 'Autoroute, White Elegance
B. The Letter, Dernier Rendez-Vous Au Gord, Flintstone, Maksymenko, 3 Hommes Et Un Mouchoir, 3 Legs For Two Birds, Supply And Demand, Stop Those Ideas.
