ADN’ Ckrystall- Jazz’ Mad LP

Before I begin today, my apologies for the dead massmirror links…I have no idea what happened with those, but I’m currently switching everything back to zshare. I have about four more posts to reupload (Clint Ruin, Boytronic, Mary Goes Round, and Baroque Bordello), and that should all be sorted out within the evening…

Secondly, thanks for all the requests that have been pouring in this weekend! I’m aiming to upload all I can get my hands on, but stay tuned soon for Siglo XX, Babel 17, Camera Obscura, Pavillon 7B, etc. and some local treats. I’ll attack all that as soon as I can.

Otherwise, today’s post is on ADN’ Ckyrstall, a French minimal artist who’s given name is Erick Moncollin. Erick took on his moniker as early as 1977, playing an experimental brand of rock music infused with primitive synthesizers. Throughout the late seventies, he developed his craft alongside members of the like-minded act GonG. The first ADN’ Ckryrstall release appeared in 1982, and until 2005 it was the lone full-length, though one other single followed in 1984. Afterwards, Erick added other members to the project, renamed ADN’ La Catastrophe,. Both outfits dropped off the radar in 1992 as Erick would delve into the techno/ambient scene under the name Dr. Strange, only to reappear in 2005 with a new LP, entitled Synthesizers And Other Electronic Masturbators.

I’ve uploaded ADN’ Ckrystall’s debut record Jazz’ Mad for your listening pleasure.

  1. I love this band. I have only known of them for about a year now. The music reminds of fantasy type stuff that could have fit somewhere on the Lord of the rings cartoons, the ones that came out oh so long ago. I saw a mention on the internet once about a two cd collective of this bands work. I have yet been able to find it, nor any of -la’catastrophe’s work. Great Band.Strange enough I was just looking at the myspace page of theirs right before I saw your post.Coincidence? I think not.

    Erick- glad to hear about the new record! should be dropping any day now, n’est pas? all the new releases sound rather choice, so i shall keep my eyes and ears posted- thanks!

  5. Erick gets around. Everywhere I have seen a post of even one of his songs, there he was makeing cordial hello or commentary. Trully interesting band and equally mystical majestrate. I just wish Vinyl-on-Demand wasn’t shipping from Germany. I recently discovered how expensive it is to ship alone within our own country. Oh, well. The music is awesome enough to order it. It worries me to ship stuff from over blue seas It took me two months to receive green tea and dates from a good friend in Singapore. Great band though.Definitely. That was my point;)
