iwm(4) : " Los Paranos "
This is the sound of the cassette !


Recorded with 2 cassette recorders. Félix Faure Avenue (Lyon). Casio times, remember Luc Le Masne, " Moi et mon Casio ". The 80's. The synthesizer must be a Yamaha, but what model ? … really suitable track for a "Klimperish treatment" regarding the use of the synthesizer, mainly solo (listen near 2:05), I acknowledge a strong influence of both Keith Emerson (ELP) and Manfred Mann. Most tracks didn't have any still title … it had to be decided then ...reinvented somehow.

Dedicated to Patrick Ravella
Recorded rue Juiverie, in the 90's, on a digital Alexis XT 8 tracks, medium : some kind of big video tape (VHS). Dedicated to Patrick Ravella, both poet and psychiatrist, co-founder of the Collège de Physiologie Subjective Appliquée (PSA, cf. klimperei.free.fr) who was very fond of this track. Alesis KS32 keyboard, lead vocal by Françoise Lefebvre. In the new version, the (extended) coda is an ironical wink to Moby.
Lyrics
 


Dedicated to GNG
Recorded with 2 cassette recorders. Félix Faure av.. Casio, TR 606, low-price electric guitar. Yamaha synthesizer. Mainly dedicated to GNG because of its title. In the 80's.

 

 

Recorded with 2 cassette recorders. Félix Faure av. Casio, TR 606. Yamaha synthesizer. Slightly influenced, in particular for its bridge, by " l'histoire du loup dans la bergerie " by Charlélie Couture on his " Poèmes Rock " album, 1981. This gives you some rather sharp time clues. Lyrics
 

Recorded with 2 cassette recorders. Félix Faure av. Casio, Yamaha synthesizer, bad guitar. Has become instrumental, pointless lyrics. In the 80's.
 


Recorded with 2 analogical tape recorders. Caluire, end of the 70's. Kawaï 100 F synthesizer (vintage ! still used by Sylvain Santelli), bad guitar. With that kind of title, Los Paranos finds its way… lyrics slightly modified.
Please note : a cover version of this track, very different (and in English), in the Definitive Cuts cassette, by Deleted, 1994, Echtzeit (Germany) under the title " Paranoiac Elephants ". The title refers to one of the (many) graffitis upon my bedroom walls in Annecy-le-Vieux (70's) : " éléphants noires paranoïaques ". Author unknown. Lyrics


Recorded with 2 cassette recorders. Félix Faure av. There are new strings on the electric guitar, you can hear it (a bit). The Kawaï as a pseudo beatbox. At the time, not a very interesting track but for its introductive theme.

 
 

Dedicated to Laurent Prot (IAV)
Recorded with 2 cassette recorders. Félix Faure av.. Synthesizers : Yamaha and Kawaï. Laurent Prot (IAV - In Aeternam Vale, www.myspace.com/inaeternamvale) loved this track like I loved his track " Potin ", amongst others. Please note : a cover version of this song, in the Definitive Cuts tape, by Deleted, 1994, Echtzeit (Germany) under the title " The ceiling ". In the new version, the samba outro is a wink to Roberto Cavalcante who was my mestre de Batucada for 7 years. Lyrics
 

Recorded with 2 cassette recorders. Félix Faure av. Casio, TR 606. Yamaha synthesizer I suppose. For the new version, Denis asked me to remove the ending (vocals Brian Eno style, Taking Tiger Mountain period…). A few melodical weaknesses in the original version, with guitar solos slightly influenced by The Durutti Column. Lola took part in the new version (listen near 1:16).
 
 

Dedicated to Sébastien Morlighem
Recorded (improvised for fun) with 2 cassette recorders while playing with the speed (there was a button for that). Félix Faure av. Kawaï, TR 606, electric guitar. The weird sound appearances are due to defects in the tape. Sébastien and a few others have a crush on this track. Lyrics
 

Recorded with 2 cassette recorders. Félix Faure av. Piano, flute, metallophone and other little stuff lent by Laurent Fauconnet. One of the first tracks that sound like " Klimperei ", before it ever existed and in the end, it seems to me, was included in When memories began to fade, first Klimperei tape, released on Underground Production, in 1987.
 

Recorded with 2 cassette recorders. Félix Faure av. TR 606 and Yamaha synthesizer. The sequencer, not synchronized with the TR was hand played (a big square button gave the tempo). " New Wave " period. A cover version of this track (in English) in the Definitive Cuts tape, by Deleted, 1994, Echtzeit (Germany) under the title " evidence ". Lyrics
 

Recorded with 2 cassette recorders. Caluire, end of the 70's. Kawaï 100 F synthesizer, bad guitar. A few melodical drawbacks (these useless solos) but easy and enjoyable to play again.
 
 

Dedicated to Lola Petchanatz
Recorded rue Juiverie, in the 90's, on an XT Alesis. Françoise Lefebvre : backing vocals and spoken voice. This track was played again by the band Lapin Gris in 2002 (line up : Christophe Petchanatz, electric guitar & voice, Fred Jalabert, electric guitar, Sophie Peyron, bass guitar, Éric Issartelle, drums). For the new version, Claire and Lola joined the game … This song was part, with " un system pas banal " and a few others, of a serie of silly tracks made with Françoise in a " plus fort de Costes ! " mood. Lyrics
 

Recorded with 2 cassette recorders. Félix Faure av. Casio, Kawaï and Yamaha keyboards. This melody is very moving to me. Listen near 1:10, in the new version, a modest tribute to Phil Manzanera.
 
 

Recorded with 2 cassette recorders. Caluire, end of the 70's. Kawaï 100 F synthesizer, bad guitar (always played in bar chords, always).
 

Recorded with 2 cassette recorders. Félix Faure av. Casio, Yamaha and Kawaï keyboards.
In the new version, listen near 2:20, shy appearance of Lola.
 

Recorded with 2 cassette recorders. Félix Faure av. TR 606, bad guitar and Yamaha synthesizer. New Wave period, influences : Tubeway Army / Gary Numan… A cover version of this track is on Système Nerveux, cassette then CD on Vuzh (USA), 2001. In the new version lays an allusion to the Velvet Underground. Lyrics
 


Recorded with 2 cassette recorders. Félix Faure av. Casio and Kawaï keyboards. I very much like this melody too. Inspired by Claude Seyve , " Une piote et une poule d'eau " : A piote is a moorhen…

Translation from french to english : Sylvain Santelli
