Small Hits : unreleased versions

Small Hits : unreleased versions

A new single by Alesia Cosmos. On Small Hits, two unreleased versions of the most famous titles of the group : The Last Line and Pat’lin de Merde.

The Last Line was the first title on the second album Aeroproducts (1985). A high energy rock song with a distorted electric guitar riff. In 2019, Pascal Holtzer remixed the original tracks and produced this yet unreleased extended version.

Pat’lin d’Merde was the most famous title on the first album Exclusivo! (1983). This quirky pseudo punk anthem united all generations of listeners in a great burst of laughter. When Bruno de Chénerilles composed this bomb in his studio, he himself sang the very first version of it. This yet unreleased sketch has a nice spontaneous energy.

Small Hits is a CD single in a limited edition of 100 copies slipped into a simple cardboard sleeve designed by Bruno de Chénerilles.

VAVAVOOM ! a new cd

VAVAVOOM ! a new cd

A brand new CD on record label Audiorama. Composed by Pascal Holtzer, Pierre Zeidler and Bruno de Chénerilles, 3 members of Alesia Cosmos who met for this trio side-project.

Recorded in May 2021 at studio Audiorama, it was mixed and mastered during that summer. VAVAVOOM ! Is available : you can order it on the Audiorama Record Shop.

Starting with original tracks composed and proposed by Pascal Holtzer, the 3 fellows met in 2 recording sessions. Pierre Zeidler (clarinet, saxophone) and Bruno de Chénerilles (live electronics, moogs, theremin) played freely with these tracks avec ces pistes during 2 sessions. The whole material was then remixed by Pascal Holtzer.

This creative process led to VAVAVOOM ! All along the 11 tracks, the album creates a very special sound universe, sometimes groovy, even creepy, but always humoristic, not very far from Alesia Cosmos.

You can be among the firsts to support this artistic enterprise on label Audiorama : Order now the album on the Record Shop !
