Cat. No. : FFL036
In 1979, when Stand By, was released, was released, the press had already labelled Heldon as the first electric punk group. There is nothing silly in that, Heldon having quickly moved away from the spacey German influences which were not to Richard Pinhas’ taste. This can be heard on Stand By, the lynchpin of which is the twenty minutes of sound and fury of "Boléro", something of a high point of a group not lacking in memorable moments and which owes much to the sequencers of the "technician" Didier Badez. As on the two previous releases, the ever–faithful Patrick Gauthier, François Auger and Didier Batard were present – and how! For one track, Klaus Blasquiz (a very special guest) sings and highlights the underlying links between Heldon, Magma and Weidorje, but also a shared past experience in Blues Convention with Richard Pinhas.
