Ptôse - The Official Guide To P.P. 1979-1982




The original Official Guide was a tape released on Flowmotion in 1981. Ostensibly lost to the world until Frank re-released this as an LP (the members' edition came with a bonus 7" ... hence the 1982 component). The track list for this on Discogs just follows the tape but misses the last two tracks on Side A, and gets the title wrong ... but, hey whatcha gonna do?

Flowmotion was a good choice for the label given the motorik glimpses but it could only have been imagined in France. This is more akin to the sound of embracing your psychosis.

LP and 7" released on Vinyl-on-demand in 2014.

Listen to the voices inside your head...
