Dedicated to Peter Gabriel (!). Released with André Viaud, of Pataphonie fame, ‘Video Screens Control’ was issued on Luc Marianni’s own label, Delphes Records. Part of a planned trilogy called Between Light And Sound Waves of which this 2LP was the first and last ever released. Sarcastic excerpts from french commercials and news programs are juxtaposed with cheap robotic electronic rythms, cynical frippian guitar and (very) concrete sounds. Marianni’s masterpiece is probably ‘Souvenirs du futur’, 1980, his album with the band Rock Critics being a good release too. None of them are availaible in CD format. ‘Video Screens Control’ is a favorite, radical and funny at the same time.
