Finders Keepers sister label Cache Cache and X-Ray Pop’s Doc Pilot inaugurate an ongoing collaboration to plunder the hidden depths of one of the most original and productive independent groups of the French DIY domestic synth pop/pocket punk funk/homemade tape scene with this cut AND paste Christmas cartridge of well loved and unknown festive interference spanning the first 20 years of the groups self-propelled anti-career. With a consistent omnipresence on European tape co-ops through the 80s and early 90s this troupe of battery operated cabaret cosmonauts combine duel French femme vox with alternating dreamy metronomic private pop or erratic pulsating cosmic rock via their Casio-to-cassette production line. A standout track on the lauded rare alternative funk compilation and sited as a closely guarded influence for the well informed X-Ray Pop are a group who are easy to scratch the surface but almost impossible to get the bottom of, with a warren of unexplored passages they truly are a band with musical gift that keeps on giving!

Precariously bridging gaps between Fontaine, Robeiro, Sunforest, Cluster, ESG, Williams and Currie, The Plastics, Weekend, Stereolab and faithful generations of adventurous continental Walkmans, this group sends a 9v current from Elli and Jacno to Elly and Rikkert and, if at all possible, provides pop punks equivalent of Vera Chytilova’s Daisies, maybe… Joyeux Noël!
