Boomkat Product Review:
Immersive, transporting and deeply arresting music from the revered autodidact and audio oddity.
If you've never encountered Ghédalia before, this is an excellent place to start, welcoming you to a whole other world of exotic, electro and acoustic sounds, composed according to a genuinely far reaching and individual agenda. The five bonus tracks opens to a comedic, exuberant vocal set to crackly 78 backing on "Whatever" and turns blind corners into ethno-noise trance-outs on "Singing", hyper-rhythmic experiments on "Wild" and a jarring hardcore punk-out in "My Rock Ghédalia".
Also included is the first CD edition of "Whatever Works Singing Wild My Rock Ghédalia" (previously issued as side B of "Granny Awards" LP), created in the early '80s in his anhydridic Paris.
