Mahjun - Happy French Band (1977)

This French group, adept at first of a revolutionnary rock in the style of KOMINTERN, turned then to burlesque, humoristic rock full of parody and mixing pop tunes and rock themes with a truly provocative spirit evoking GONG. The instrumental developments, the dialogues between the violin, Jean-Pierre THIRAULT's saxophone and the guitar remind of the delirium and audacious music of GONG, MOVING GELATINE PLATES, EAST OF EDEN, Kevin AYERS...

Oohh!

Thank you! One of the eight? seven? nine? albums of MAHJUN. I knew ALBERT MARCOEUR and ETRON FOU LELOU BLANC as French genious weirdos, but this Mahjun is really funny!

For those who can't understand French, the first song celebrates a very common French sandwich...
