12” released 1985 on Repli Strategic (Picture Wave Records)
Théatre Commercial was a french quatuor including Catherine Rimbaud, Guillaume Loizillon, Antoine Campo and Jean-Pierre Chalbos. This 12” is the music to a theater performance. The sound is certainly typical from french new-wave (think Art & Technique, for instance), but this is almost a concept album, with on-going narration throughout. Antoine Campo is now a full-time stage director. He’s said to have written and directed ‘Théatre Commercial’ [+]. Guillaume Loizillon was already mentioned before on Continuo [+]. Jean-Pierre Chalbos is a famous parisian producer running a reknowned recording studio, and occasional member of Patrick Muller’s improv big band: L’Orchestre Inachevé, along Loizillon. Delightful hommage to The Residents on track #9.
