Verto – Krig/Volubilis

Verto-frontVerto-rear

LP, Pôle, 1976

Delerious lysergic guitar-centred freakery from the mid-70s, sounding sometimes like a more prog-influenced Chrome. Lead man Jean-Pierre Grasset is backed on this by members of Potemkine, who veer closer to Magma/Zeuhl sounds on their own equally twisty trio of albums from 76-78 (another day, kids). One of only two Verto records (we’ll rip Reel 19.36 another day too – only so many hours etc etc), they could both do with a remastered reissue and far wider attention. Yes, we do say that frequently.
