Third in a series of ten reissues of the cult French underground Futura label. Semool were the trio of Philippe Martineau, Olivier Cauquil and Rémy Dédé Dreano. They recorded “Essais” between 1969 and 1971. Under the underground, it’s a foggy lo-fi psychedelic alien with echoes of Pink Floyd and Black Sabbath drowned in oceans of heavy delay and acid guitars. This high quality reissue is fully licenced by Gerard Terrones.
