Vox Populi! - Aither +

Label : Nostalgie De La Boue [ndlb#36], Ivory Coast, 2013

Last months have been a prolific period for Vox Populi! re-releases, as will be next ones. After "La Cathédrale Morte" (net-release), "Ébats Spirituels" (net-release), "Half Dead Ganja Music" (LP), here is the net-re-release of "Aither", the second Vox Populi! LP from 1989, with 3 unreleased tracks from the same period, all remastered by Axel Kyrou in 2013. "Aither" sounds like a synthesis of the different music styles the band has developed during the 1980s. It was originally released by Visa, a famous french independant label, and some of the tracks were included on the "1987-1990" CD released by Infrastition in 2008, but the entire album is available again for the first time.
More is coming. Very soon will be released "Funk Off" (CD), a compilation of early 80s tracks by Vox Populi! and Pacific 231. And finally, in the fall of 2014, Vinyl-on-demand will release a Vox Populi! vinyl boxset (2LP + 7" for members) with 130 minutes of music from the 1982-1988 period, including their complete first LP "Myscitismes" from 1985.
Again I want to warmly thank Axel and Mitra for their inspiring music and their generous politics of sharing.
