And share these good news with your friends.

Josh Cheon held to achieve this reissue alike and in collaboration with the members of the group. The music is in its original condition without any remix and the cover is exactly the same.
Why change as this nugget of the french underground has retained all its freshness. Nothing to throw, or even edit in this music that continues to fascinate several generations of fans. Since June 2016, the original pressing was sold out and Josh’s proposal came at time to revive the flame in this summer.

In this blog we tell you little by little the true story of Alésia Cosmos from the premises to the last concerts, we will publish press extracts, unpublished audio archives, flyers, programs, pictures , testimonials
