DEAD LINKS

NOTE : DEAD LINKS
We'd like to thank everyone for preventing us of dead links. For the moment, we are note able to re-up them.

Feel free to keep on preventing us of those dead links. We will update them when we (I and Jeb-E-Diah) have more time to (understand : from september). Some of them will be partially or completely repacked considering albums which would have been issued thereafter and surely with new and improved artworks.

Stay tuned !

BELL OEIL (ABO#094)


BELL OEIL
L'ECORCHE
(1999-2008)


Bell Oeil come from my home town Angers, France. But they have never gone further than a local starship although his concerts have always been great moments. For having seen them twice, I can only say that (at least) France has lost one of the biggest french chanson talents. Indeed, that band fronted by Christophe Bell Oeil has never had the chance to national exposition, except twice in 2002 ion french radio France Inter to promote their second album "Cabossé". Then perhaps because of too close sounding-like Mano Solo compositions, they were taken aside from any label catalogue. Maybe also because of a nowadays mood which prefer light and fun songs, those sad ones were not desired... Sad affair for a band I really enjoy to listen to, and which I really wanted to share with you.
Now Christophe Bell Oeil broke up the band to perform alone and to concentrate to his other passion, painting (he made the artworks for the two first CDs ... and for this one).


Extracts :
Le Sentiment

I found a YouTube video of Christophe with a violinist, and I like that, so I'm looking forward to discovering these tunes. Many thanks.
