Biography

Ange is a legendary progressive rock band from France created in 1970.

Story and biography:
Christian Décamps was born in Héricourt (Haute Saône) on August 11th, 1946. At a very young age he is possessed by this irresistible envy to look like Orson Welles at the end of his life rather than Alain Delon at the beginning of his. Quickly attracted by music and the scene, he found, at the end of 1969, the band ANGE (which means, in French, Analyse Naturelle des Grands Esprits) who is going to assert itself throughout the 70s as being N°1 of the French rock scene, with 6 golden disks and more than 3 million albums sold. On scene, Christian DECAMPS propels every title of the group in real life, served by his vocal power and highly-rated gestural together with a very particular sound.

1970: First real concert of the group with a satiric opera-rock “La fantastique épopée du Géneral Machin” January 31st.
First concert at the Golf Drouot, the temple of the Parisian rock scene of the time, on April 5th, 1970.
ANGE becomes very fast the whooping cough of this Mecca… ANGE takes away the annual finale of the Golf Drouot and signs with PHILIPS its first single “Tout feu tout flamme”.
1972, June 7th: Presentation of the 1st album “CARICATURES”. ANGE plays the first part of “Johnny HALLYDAY Circus”, a three month tour of France.
1973: First English tour before the release of the “LE CIMETIERE DES ARLEQUINS”, the second album, in which is recorded Jacque Brel’s famous “Ces gens-là”. ANGE triumphs in England and more particularly at the Festival of Reading starring GENESIS…
1974, January 10th. Parisian concert in the Mutuality in front of more than 2.000 spectators for the first time in ten years.

    я так понимаю, для лягушатников группа - просто "наше все". если мыслить трезво, то я нахожу этот коллектив достаточно банальным для прог-рока мирового уровня начала 70-х, вот группа komintern - это уже не для детей

    Фу. Ну надо же. Самая прослушиваемая композиция - какой-то ремикс.

    Muito boa a banda! Realmente muito boa! Fazia tempo que eu não conhecia uma banda de prog que me prendesse tanto. Destaque pras faixas "Tels Quels", "L'Espionne Lesbienne", "Godevin le Vilain" e "Ballade pour une Orgie". Vou atrás dos álbuns após o 3o.

    J'ai eu la chance de voir Ange dans les 70's très souvent ! TRES ! J'adorais tellement ce groupe ! On était jeunes ! Eux (les zicos) et nous (le "public") Après , j'ai délaissé un peu ! 4 décennies après , je dois dire que c'est quand même magnifique , non ? Pour la vie , on aimera ce groupe !
