When I wrote Axel Kyrou that I wished to post the debut Vox Populi! cassette, "Introduction À La Théorie De La Subjectivité Relative", he answered that before I do so, he would like to offer earlier VP! recordings for sharing. He also sent the visual above and wrote the following statement to introduce these recordings :
'The Teen Recordings' were recorded between 1979 and 1981. These are the first and, yet, unreleased recordings by Vox Populi! As the title suggests, I made them during my teens (I'm from 1964), with some help from my elder brother Ariel on vocals, jaw's harp and percussion. I play synth, radio waves, video games, tapes, bass, guitar, jaw's harp and voices. I must say that we had a very encouraging family environment. Our father Ado was a great fan of any kind of unusual and extreme forms of music. I remember very well my father's PA being blown out by one of the first Whitehouse recordings ! He was a TV/film director and a writer. My mother Mireille is a musician and she had worked under Pierre Schaeffer's direction for a few years at the institution that became soon after the IRCAM. For sure, they were on our side and they did help in many ways. A big Thank is due to them. I hope you'll enjoy these goofy DIY recordings made with very little means. Wishing to you music lovers all the best, Axel, for Vox Populi!
