Cat. No. : FFL035
At this period the group’s music, as Gérard N’Guyen wrote in the fanzine Atem, was like "a guided tour through the ruins of a civilisation".
In the middle of the punk wave, the universe of Heldon indeed became more threatening and heavy, echoing the novel by Norman Spinrad from which the group took their name, The Iron Dream. This was also the point at which Heldon became a genuine group, centred around Patrick Gauthier (synthesizers), Didier Batard (bass) and François Auger (drums), which allowed Richard Pinhas to focus on the real motivation behind this audacious undertaking.
Like its’ predecessor Un Rêve sans conséquence spéciale, and then Stand By, which followed, Interface, the second album of the "trilogy" recorded at studios Davout, represents a sonic culmination, even a climax, its’ violence coming from the machines and delving into notions of repetition and scansion, prefiguring a lot of the music that was to follow, whether it be electro and industrial or post–rock and noise. It goes without saying: seminal and always innovative!
