Biography

France (1973 – 1986)

Etron Fou Leloublan (literally, “Mad Shit Thewhitewolf”) is a mythic seventies underground band from France formed in 1973 by Chris Chanet (aka Eulalie Ruynat, saxophone and vocals), Guigou Chenevier (Drums) and Ferdinand Richard (Bass & guitar),. This leader of the French underground shows his sense of humour and derision on a deliciously weird music. This incredible trio happily destroys all rock structures and performs a delirious music, full of humour and rhythm, similar to Captain Beefheart, Albert Marcoeur, Bourvil and ZNR. It is not surprising that Etron Fou Leloublan became the French representative in Chris Cutler’s “Rock In Opposition” movement.

Debut album “Batelages” was originally issued in November 1976, and “Les Trois Fou’s Perdégagnent - Au Pays Des…” a year later. Francis Grand (Saxophone) replaced Chris Chanet at this occasion. “Les Poumons Gonflés” dates back from 1982, and was produced by Fred Frith (Henry Cow). “Les Sillons De La Terre” (1984) and “Face Aux Elements Déchaînés” (1986) conclude the band’s discography. Musea issued the 3CD compilation “43 Songs” in 1993 which gathered the complete studio works of Etron Fou Leloublan. The live album “En Public Aux Etats-Unis D’Amérique” (1979) has recently been published on the Gazul label and gives another chance to hear their tongue-in-cheek music made of subversive parodies, musical courage and weird parts.
