:Zoviet:France: ‎– "Eostre" (Red Rhino Records ‎– REDLP 45) 1984





As is fitting in the week that France was attacked by Daesh Terrorists,killing 129+ persons, we bring you a double album of somber dark ambient doomscapes by a group with 'France' in their moniker;and I will type with a blood red font. The harsh industrial tribalism has largely disappeared by 1984,and the emphasis is far more on foggy black oceans of radio interference,accidentally tuning in to various middle eastern transmissions,of the non-violent variety. This is ethnological simulation under the false flag of dark ambient tinged Industrialism. Not unlike the regular suspicions that every so-called Terror attack is sponsored,or allowed to happen, by certain dark forces with a sinister agenda. To spread the Fear, to continue the constant cycle of War, and to erode liberty in the name of 'security'. The totalitarian tiptoe into a dark Orwellian future, as we voluntarily allow the remaining meager freedoms to be filed away, never to be recycled.

Tracklist:

A1 Shout The Storm
A2 Cirice
B1 Hymen
B2 Gustr
B3 Kirke
C1 Pearroc
C2 Regn
C3 Bell
C4 Cad Goddeau
D1 Wajis
D2 Angelus
D3 Neptune

Definitely an appropriate week to be posting these albums, sadly. Keep up coming.

Zoviet France and Muslimgauze were two groups I always heard about in passing, but never really knew. Now I know! Thank you for posting, there's a lot of good stuff here.

So another link to another illegal download, abusing our rights and stealing our work. Please remove it.

Jonny Zchivago said...

Fair enough,though i suppose you'll want your excellent review left up? I'll remove the legal share,its the file hosting site who are doing the illegal stuff. If you don't want any new fans that's your right.Abused or not.

you'd think they'd be glad anyone was still interested...back in the day the second hand record shops of newcastle were choked with their output...now you've got to pay stupid money...the vast majority of which the 'band' won't see anyway...bad motor scooter indeed.

das boot

Jonny Zchivago said...

Yes Das boot, the vast majority of artists featured on here fully appreciate the service Blogs do for their reputation/profiles.Its rather akin to refusing Johm Peel permission to play your single back in the day. The only way one makes money from music these days is playing live....the bigger your rep/profile, the more dosh you get. Anyway, whatever,there's plenty out there who do appreciate the service.

it's always a great pleasure to read your reviews and listen to the music you share. Thank you very much.

Zoviet France is a favorite. I'm sorry to see them react this way. They obviously have the right, but considering they're on nearly every bit tracker on the planet at this point, they should indeed be grateful that you give their work some positive, interesting context. I'm not crazy about MP3s and lossy sharing, but I doubt that has any role in this request to remove the material. This is old world clashing with new world, and ignorance is one of the released particles from the explosion. Not only isn't it a good look for them, but it more than likely works against their favor from a business perspective as well. In other words, shutting you down serves no good purpose...other than declaring control. Hey, great. You're in control. Enjoy watching your work disappear into obscurity.

Well, I couldn't have put it better myself. definitely a case of no adapting to the new age involved here. The same cannot be said for all ex-members of ZF however.I suspect the complainers involve at least one original member,who wants to remain so obscure that i can't even remember his name...without scanning the information super-highway. File sharing is infact responsible for the resurgence of Live performance (ie Work), and the resurrection of many lost and forgotten artists. Something i think the "Reformed faction of Zoviet France" and "Dead Voices on Air"(both including later members of ZF) appreciates as they are constantly playing live including a US Tour.

Mason Wills said...

Funny ZF are getting pissed, no one knows who they are anyways. Jonny's just sharing them with the world, they should just be glad anyone even cares about them.

Mason Wills said...

I'd take it as a compliment for someone to take time out of their day to share my music.

Jonny Zchivago said...

Most artists on here do,they are usually delighted.Only had trouble from Cabaret Voltaire, Hal McGee,Crawling Chaos( check this out lol...(http://crawlingchaos.co.uk/879/goat-die-or-diy/),Psyclones,and ZF.
If you want the zf stuff i can e-mail you the links.

Mason Wills said...

Jesus... is Crawling Chaos 12 years old? What an asshole.

Mason Wills said...

Thanks, but I already got the ZF links. Downloaded them before this whole situation.

Mason Wills said...

BTW, a lot of artists are actually helped by this blog. There are quite a few people I ended up buying from because I liked what I heard on Die or DIY.

Jonny Zchivago said...

You said it. Some people have to wake up to the reality of 'Market Forces' in a capitalist plutocracy, and get up to speed with a modern and evolving world.Beethoven never got paid if some orchestra in Gdansk played his work, he had to write new ones,or perform. No records back then...in fact they were only really around as a viable proposition for a few decades.Things are changing again....thats life.

Andy the Fag said...

Ha Ha. You live for these takedown requests don't you? I know I do anyways. It's always fun to read on here and I get to hate a band instead of needlessly downloading and labeling and archiving and storing their pissings to insure it has a better chance at surviving under the mountain of pure shit that is always piling higher than anyone will ever be able to wade through in one lifetime. We know at best a band will get a handful of purchasers at best by denying it and looking like assholes. But whats better a few sales or few hundred new fans with your music being a part of their life now? thousands of fans with this blog growing exponentially. somebody needs to bitch slap his old funky ass and tell him to wake the fuck up. i'm pissed because i thought i liked them too. i learn so much from your blog man that i never expected to learn. this blog will be a part of some college course someday in music history i have no doubt. cited for references etc. :O ...i have some posts to erase actually. oh and thanks for nothing this time asshole. (talking to zf not u thug jonny) ♥

Oh man that Hal McGee post is a classic man. Ha ha. I only wished I didn't spend the time to write him something only to have it rejected in error. You think he isn't accepting comments anymore on purpose? You should make a new place for them to be collected somewhere. I'm sure it would be worth the trouble for the shit show is everyone's favorite as you know. Viva la schadenfreude! I've been taking French if you can tell. ☻i.

Jonny Zchivago said...

y'KNOOWW WOT?.....i'm gonna re-up this fooker!.....it's good to hate.
As for that twat hal McGee,i only put his shit on here because it fit the remit....its crap,so i don't mind taking that shit down.
