Giant Folk Eyeball (inactive) Anyone like Malicorne? (67* d) Anyone like Malicorne? 09 Feb 08


The great French folk rock band, Malicorne, came up in a discussion (over noodles rather than over the net) with Mudcatters Sedayne and Rapunzel this week, causing me to dig out my copy of their masterpiece, 'Almanach', which I'm playing now and getting utterly bowled over by. Anyone else in Mudcatland like 'em? I personally believe they leave the UK folk rock bands of the late sixties and early seventies standing - they took the possibilities of folk rock much further, and don't sound dated in the way that most English folk rock, from Fairport to the Oyster Band and everything in between, does (with the honourable exception of the stellar Mr Fox). Almananch is almost a concept album and has a song for evey month of the year - as far as I know, nearly all traditional french folk songs (my understanding of the sleevenotes is patchy).

Anyone else a Malicorne enthusiast or am I alone, sad and deluded?

Cheers,

Nigel
