  • Description

    The first reissue on vinyl of Aksak Maboul's classic 1980 LP. It includes a booklet with various documents, as well as previously-unreleased recordings (available via a digital download code).

    Originally released in January 1980, the second album from (Crammed founder) Marc Hollander's band was the first record bearing the Crammed logo (although the label only really started to exist at the end of that year). More intense and experimental than the first Aksak Maboul album (yet often as playful), containing complex written section, free improv, and a wild variety of elements, "Un peu…" was recorded with a band comprising revered UK musicians Fred Frith & Chris Cutler, and is described by All Music Guide as a pinnacle of the RIO movement (RIO being Rock In Opposition, the late-'70s radical, pan-European coalition of bands, of which Aksak Maboul was part).

    "Un peu de l'âme des bandits" reached #3 in the NME's top ten European albums of 1980 (after Yello and The Nits, before Steve Reich and Faust!).
