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 !

(updated front cover)


Bon An, Mal An

Gabriel Yacoub was one of Alan Stivell's backing band members. In 1973, he left to found a new band with her wife, Marie. After a promising first LP, the duet turned into a real band which was called Malicorne, a middle west little town's name. One thing has to be clarified : Malicorne is not a breton band but just a folk(-rock) band. Yacoub was indeed born in the east of France. By the way, Malicorne's music does not sounds really like celtic music but refers to much more french traditions... By the turn of the 70's decade, the band sold less and less albums and had to break up after a "Cathedrales De L'Industrie" which already sounds like a Yacoub solo album (see ABO#116)

Mince, ça fait longtemps que je suis pas tombé sur un blog musical aussi original! Quel boulot! Les pochettes sont superbes en plus. N'importe qui ayant de se faire une compil de, disons 20 titres, à partir des 10 et plus albums de ses artistes préférés doit bénir ce site! Moi j'avais essayé pour Fugazi, dur dur ! Quoique une compil, ça reste perso! En plus y'a vraiment du goût dans le choix des groupes!
A ce propos, petit défi! J'ai vu une compil de Malicorne, je vous mets au défi d'une compil digne de ce nom d'un autre groupe de la région du Mans, le génial groupe Tue-Loup. Allez hop!

Défi accepté...
Maintenant, quand la compil' sera-t'elle en ligne, je ne saurais dire. Je te conseille donc de visiter régulièrement BAISTOPHE... ;)
