Biography

Opera Multi Steel was born during the winter 1983-1984 in Bourges, a city in the centre of France. In the beginning, the band was first set up by Franck Lopez, his brother Patrick L. Robin and Catherine Marie. A four track 45 RPM recorded in 1984, was the first essay of the group in studio work. The following year saw the releasing of « Cathedrale », a 10 track album dedicated to this famous gothic building of Bourges. The band gave numerous concerts and played in several french festivals. It also contributed to many K7 and record compilations on french and european independant labels. In parallel to its official discographic work, Opera Multi Steel recorded with lighter sound material several K7s containing many unreleased tracks: « Autres Appels » (1985), « Eternelle Tourmente » (1986), « OMS/Modern Art » (1987), « Je Regarde la Pluie »(1987), « Regret qui s’écaille » (1987), « OMS in Concert » (1987). These different limited edition tapes are nowadays deleted and are considered as real collector’s items.

Xavier Martin, an electric guitar player joined the band in 1987 for the studio session of « Personne ne dort », a 2 track 45 RPM with a sleeve designed by the famous french painter Speedy Graphito. Xavier, above all very fond of Hard Rock (!?) did not stay a long time; he left the group after one year of activity. It was really difficult for him to fit with the peculiar musical style of Opera Multi Steel.

In 1988, Eric Milhiet (bass guitar, recorders, keyboards… ), an old friend who had already played with Franck in other bands before OMS, joined the band for the recording session of the 8 track album « A Contresens ».
