In 1970, when Swiss garage-beat band Les Sauterelles split, their leader, Toni Vescoli, decided to start a solo career. At first, inspired by Dylan, he thought of going strictly acoustic, but he soon changed his mind and, influenced by bands like King Crimson and Pink Floyd, he started incorporating psychedelic & electric elements to his sound: feedback, primitive drum machines, guitars and vocals filtered through Leslie speakers etc. He also incorporated to his repertoire some of the songs he had written for the never recorded Sauterelles concept album, “Seven Deadly Sins”.

In 1971, Toni released his debut solo album, “Information”. A folk-rock / psychedelic gem which reflected his influences at the time: folk, rock, psychedelia, progressive-rock…From fragile acoustic numbers to dark, wigged-out psychedelic tracks, this is highly recommended to anyone into “CQ” era Outsiders or Frank Nuyen’s “Rainman” album.

Stunning mastertape sound, original gatefold sleeve, repro of the rare poster and insert with detailed liner notes by Mike Stax.

“A masterpiece of European folk-psych”
