50 видео Воспроизвести все Микс Ame Son - Catalyse 1970 Full AlbumYouTube. Comparisons with Gong are appropriate since a couple members of Ame Son toured with Daevid Allen prior to his forming Gong. Many tracks begin in an avant free-form jam that eventually develops into more structured song and rhythm, with lyrics in either French or English, and then slips back into another wild free-form freak-out. In fact, each of the six tracks from the album are actually two or three pieces that are segued seamlessly together. Songs in album Ame Son - Catalyse 1970. Ame Son - Hein, Quant A Toi.

I guess comparing Ame Son to Gong is no surprise as they backed Daevid Allen's Bananamoon not the lineup that recorded the Bananamoon album from 1971, that one was more or less an all-star recording, but the original Bananamoon, the band he was in after being denied reentry into England. Helps that the vocals sound unmistakably like Daevid Allen too. The group consisted of vocalistdrummer Marc Blanc, guitarist Bernard Lavialle, bassist Patrick Fontaine, and flautistvocalist Francois Garrel

Discussions of the Ame Son - Catalyse Album

Why notice 1970 as pressing year instead of nothing if you don't know. Everybody knows in France SACEM logo appears only during 1972...? Before this year it's notice BIEM, and you can check original press on centre label. So please, just leave it empty. I already saw this mistake many times for example on some New Rose Rds press. Even there is had 3 or 4 different NR centre logo during life of the record label, sellers notify original issue year. Something wrong!
Ame Son was once Daevid Allen's when he was denied entry back into England. The band was, from my understanding called Bananamoon at the time, and had nothing to do with the all-star lineup that recorded the album by that name in 1971 (aside from Daevid Allen, naturally). The band was changed to Ame Son after the departure of Allen, and they struck a deal with BYG/Actuel. Unsurprisingly, the music isn't too different from that of Gong. Similar type of psychedelia, with vocals that sound just like Allen, except the vocals are in French and English, and nothing sung about Pot Head Pixies and the like. Plus flute is dominate, no sax. It seems that BYG/Actuel wasn't the most reputable of record labels. The vinyl isn't the best of pressing, and they had a habit of mistyping names and song titles. Plus my pressing, a first pressing with the "BIEM" rights was missing "Reborn This Morning On the Way Of.../Unity", although both the album and label states the song is there, meaning side two actually starts with "A Coup de Hache/Le Sable Mouvants". I have no idea if later pressings (with the "SACEM" rights) or the German pressing on Metronome included it (turns out the German pressing on Metronome actually features the track in question, meaning I should seek out that one). Regardless it's still a decent example of psychedelia, although it's obvious to anyone the production isn't that great. Still I recommend this album, particularly to Gong fans.Update: looks like the later orange label pressing still is missing "Reborn This Morning...".
Rollers from Abdun
The only way to get the album complete on 1970's vinyl is the Metronome issue, which I have. In fact I recorded the extra / extended tracks for Gabriel Ibos for his Spalax CD issue! The reason for the mess-up on the BYG issue was that the cutting engineer said "no way that we can fit all that on" to Marc Blanc (great guy, we interviewed him for Audion magazine) - the cheap manual mastering lathe used by the French pressing plant just wasn't up to coping with the wide frequencies - so they edited it but couldn't change the cover, as it was already being printed.By the way, no "apparently" - it is all true, and well-documented in the official Daevid Allen book.A bit of the Audion interview...A: When did Ame Son start?M: It started in June '69, because at that time I was playing in a band with Daevid Allen: Bananamoon, we were playing in the south of France. And I'd been to a concert in Paris, Soft Machine were the big stars, but there was also top groups from Paris, and in each of these groups I knew someone, there was Triangle with Alain Renaud, there was We Three which was the first incarnation of Alice, and I knew Bruno Besse, and people like that, there was Jacques Dudon who was known at that time as Guilain, and so that concert gave me the feeling that something was going to happen in France with rock. But before playing with Daevid Allen there was two groups, there was Les Primitiv's who played for two years, then there was a six month experience with the group Expression with whom we did only psychedelic things, freak-outs and really crazy things.S: These two bands never recorded anything?M: There were some recordings, because we made the music for a show. But I don't know where the music is. With that group, that's how we were introduced to Daevid Allen. The soloist from Expression and Les Primitiv's was joining the army, and we were introduced to Jérôme Lapérousaz, he was the guy who set up the Amougies festival. At that time I was really crazy about The Soft Machine, I was a fan you know, and suddenly one morning he called me and said 'Do you want to play with Daevid Allen?' I said 'Are you joking or what?' and he said 'Well he's in Paris, he's got no group and you've got no soloist, so let's try it!' So, then Daevid came here, we had a big freak-out, it was a good feeling, and so that was that.A: Daevid Allen so often talked about Deya, what was so special about this place?M: Deya is on the island of Palma (Majorca), it's a little village, about an hour's bus ride from Palma the town, and a fantastic place. It's a magic place. We first went there with Daevid, but it's a really long story and you can read all about that in Daevid's book. There was a lot of artists there you know, we met Didier Malherbe there, actors, painters, lots of people. And everyone knew each other, or got to know each other. We would rehearse at Daevid and Gilli's house in the mornings, go to the beach in the afternoon, it was magic. There was one time, when we were all broke, we needed to pay off the bill at the shop for our food, so we played a concert busking for the artists, we played all night until we almost collapsed.S: But back to Ame Son...M: We'd been playing for about sixteen months with Daevid, and then I saw that concert with all those French groups, and I thought we were going to miss something because it was the first time I saw something like that in France, with French groups trying to do their own music, and there was quite an audience. At this time the guitarist was about to leave the army, we were rehearsing for Daevid's MAGIC BROTHER MYSTIC SISTER, and I wasn't really too enthusiastic about the music. We thought, we've got to do something, we've got to start our own group again and do what we were doing two years before, because we had songs of our own. So, we had a conversation with Daevid, and I said 'We want to do our own thing now' and he told me he had the same feeling, because he had the dream of Gong at that time. A mystical concept. So we split.
I do own the original, and I'm looking at the lyrics, and for some reason, I thought they were including lyrics to a song not included on the record. But it's all there. That's what happens when some of these titles were in small print on the track listing. My mistake, but it's strange, yours is a later pressing and still missing "Reborn This Morning...". So I'm going to have to edit. But to have a song mentioned on both record and label, but it's not actually there shows that BYG was not the most reputable of labels (they were a rather shady label, I understood the many American expat jazz musicians on the label who didn't speak much French were especially taken advantage of).
I just got a copy, an orange label 2nd pressing (bummer) and it indeed does look like the record is completely mislabeled. It appears the actually track listing is correct but is just completely missing "Reborn This Morning On the Way Of.../Unity"......just curious though which track you have the lyrics to that does not appear on the album. My album has all 3 tracks that have the lyrics printed.
