☼ Charles De Goal - Ici L'Ombre / 3 (orig. vers.) [April 2009 re-post]

Charles de Goal started in 1980 by Patrick Blain who released his first album 'Algorythmes' as a one-man project. The cross between post-punk, synth-pop and coldwave showed influences of influential experimental post-punk and new wave groups such as Devo and Wire. The album sold more than 15,000 copies and is today considered a cult classic inside and outside France. With the third album the inaccessible sound of Charles de Goal became more pop oriented. After the fourth album 'Double Face,' Charles de Goal called it quits. Recently, Patrick Blain started doing concerts again, with now a complete band. 20+ years after the release of the latest album, a new self-produced album, titled 'Restructuration' is out and it presents an energetic band with tight and fresh sounding songs that hold the middle between post-punk, electro and coldwave. Very much '80s with a cold dark minimalist approach, yet fully into the present as well with the modern electro influences.
