Apres Les Traces Des Loups Blancs

L to R: Richard, Meillier, Chenevier

Today's post presents some outfits formed by ETRON FOU LELOUBLAN musicians: Bruno Meillier, Guigou Chenevier, Ferdinard Richard.

Saxophonist Bruno Meillier, founding member of LES I (1979-85), played with Etron Fou the period 1981 - 83. In 1984 he formed along with Etron Fou`s bassist FERDINARD RICHARD the duo BRUNIFERD, active up to 1998.
Bruno's collaboration with Curlew's guitarist Martin Howell created, under moniker ZERO POP, an interesting combination of songforms and mild free/experimental ways influenced by both european prog/ jazz and NY's avant-art atmosphere.
Meillier has also released solo works and participated to numerous projects and collaborations (with Pierre Bastien, Toshimaru Nakamura and others).

Etron Fou's co-founder Guigou Chenevier (composition, drums, voice, saxophone) has released many solo works and among his most significant contributions are those with VIDEO AVENTURES, LES BATTERIES (with Rick Brown, Charles Hayward...)... and most recently with VOLAPUK.

Thanks a lot for these extraordinary albums, Paramo. Hope someday you can post Bruniferd´s first(and unavailable) album, "Bruniferd"(1986)and some of Meillier´s, too ("Recueil", "Onze Bonbons" or "Rapt").
