"This is the volume I of UNWORKS & RARITIES, a new serie compiling unreleased and miscelleanous pieces by OISEAUX-TEMPETE. Following their two acclaimed first albums on Sub Rosa, UNWORKS & RARITIES is putting up more than a collection of outtakes. Since 2012, French 'free-rockers' OISEAUX-TEMPETE have been making instrumental and experimental rock that's heavy, provocative, and in no way intended for just a casual listen. The band, formed in Paris, is the core duo Frederic D. Oberland & Stephane Pigneul beside drummers Sylvain Joasson, Ben McConnell & Jean-Michel Pires. Their music was initially made alongside photographer Stephane C. in order to document the existential conflict caused by the political and economic upheavals in Greece. For ÜTOPIYA? the travels moved to Istanbul and Sicily, the group expanded with the addition of G.W.Sok (The Ex's former vocalist) narrating Nazim Hikmet's poems and Gareth Davis on bass clarinet, providing the food for its urgent energy and indomitable drive; still free, more punk, pursuing their sonic odyssey around the Mediterranean Sea. Including the same previous guests, UNWORKS & RARITIES features also unreleased cosmic sessions with ondes martenot's virtuoso Christine Ott." (label info) gold vinyl, with insert
