7” ep in oversized cover, released by A.A.A., ref# S01, France, 1982
Germain Hubert Ales was the duo of A.Y.A.A. label founder Etienne Himalaya and Dorian Feller, aka Brodé Tango aka Bruno Chapoutot (see previous post), who both would later be members of Look De Bouk, 1984-91. Their unique disc was the first release on A.A.A., as it was then known, followed, also in 1982, by the Rock Feller ep and the legendary ‘Douze Pour Un’ compilation LP, including one other track by Germain Hubert Ales. The label was also very active with a Festival and a weekly radio show in Reims, the Notes music magazine and a mail order business. GHA’s music is inspired by Der Plan and Renaldo and the Loaf, while the group’s name is itself a pun on the famous Deutschland Über Alles hymn and Dead Kennedys 1979’s parody on their first single. The duo’s instrumentation includes: drums, castanets, guitar, synth, vocals, sped-up instruments and voices. The first track, for instance, is for bass and multi-tracked kazoo. Ripped at 320kbps though the music is rather lo-fi and the pressing quality is unimpressive.
