Biography

France (1982 – present)

Shub-Niggurath was a / band, formed in France in 1982 and consisted of six musicians: Allan Ballaud (bass), Franck Coulaud (percussion), Frank W. Fromy (guitar/percussion), Jean-Luc Hervé (harmonium/piano/organ), Ann Stewart (vocals), and Véronique Verdier (trombone).

Their debut, Les morts vont vite, was released on the Musea label in 1987. The album received good reviews and is considered by many to be their finest moment. Musea reissued the album on CD in 1997, including two rare bonus tracks. The debut sold well and later, in 1987, one song appeared on a Musea compilation “Enneade”, a tribute to the zeuhl founders Magma. After its release percussionist Franck Couland left, as did Franc Fromy. Jean-Luc Herve, also being a guitarist, took Fromy’s spot. In 1988, Shub-Niggurath collaborated with Slease Art on a compilation called Dithrambe. 1989 brought another compilation, Douze Pour In 2 followed by a live tape with the new line up: Allan Ballaud (bass), Jean-Luc Herve (electric guitar), Veronuque Verdier (bass trombone/percussion), new singers Sylvette Claudet and Jean-Pierre Lourdeau, and new drummer Michel Kervinio.

Prior to the release of their second studio album, C’étaient de très grands vents in 1991, also on the Musea label, Jean Pierre left the band to become a painter and a new percussionist, Edward Perraud, was added.

    Absolutely fantastic prog - and slightly annoyed I was not aware of them at the time! Even more remarkable is that their first album was released during the musical desert of the 80s - at least in the UK!

    I love rio/avant prog/zeuhl and so on, but this is one of the few bands that just didn't do anything for me. There are songs I liked here and there but I dunno.. gonna keep listening, maybe it'll take a while for them to sink in.

    With the Introduction remaster released last year, does this mean they're active again?

    The vocals aren't technical and powerful enough in my opinion.
