The remaster of the first album from innovative chamber rock/RIO band Univers Zero album, a fascinating and inventive combination of rock and compositional music.
Released in: USA
"Over 30 years ago, after 3 years of work and rehearsals, a group of seven unknown Belgian musicians gathered in a small basement studio to record their first album, which they released themselves in a tiny edition of 500 copies. The album was untitled, but the catalog number was "1313", which the album eventually became known by. The power and originality of their creation turned heads and all these years later, this album is rightly considered the beginning of the 'chamber-rock' movement as well as a classic of the genre. With the release of their first album, Univers Zero went on to co-found the hugely influential "Rock in Opposition" movement with four similarly-minded bands. Active until 1987 and then reactivated in the late 1990s, Univers Zero are considered to be one of the greatest avant-garde rock bands of all time.
Working in a world-class studio, this album has been re-mixed from the original multi-track tapes and remastered. It has never sounded better. The front cover is restored to be a facsimile of the original issue, and included is a never-released nearly 30 minute live bonus track in surprisingly excellent sound, a 16 page booklet with many never-before seen photos, as well as a very complete history of the band up to the recording of this album."-Cuneiform
