Cofounding member of Univer Zero, Roger Trigaux left that band in 1979 to develop Present, whose first album is this "Triskaidekaphobie", here remastered and with a 16 page booklet of history and photos, plus 20 minutes of new material.

Triskaidekaphobie [expanded and remastered]

Present: Triskaidekaphobie [expanded and remastered] (Cuneiform)
Label: Cuneiform    
Released in: USA    

"Originally conceived strictly as a studio project, the band began rehearsals in 1979 and began to record their first album, Triskaidekaphobie (The Fear Of The Number 13) in January, 1980. After all the rehearsals and all of the work of recording this album, Roger realized that this was a perfect ensemble to play live, as the musicians all got along well and the ensemble was small enough to be a practical outfit and the band began performing in the fall of 1980.

Since Present only had about 35' of music written for the group, in their earliest days, the band also performed two 'covers' from Univers Zero's repertoire; "Dense" (from Ceux du Dehors) and "Vous Les Saurez En Temps Voulu" (from Heresie). Recordings of these two covers, from a performance from 2/28/81 are included here as bonus tracks.

This reissue of Triskaidekaphobie includes the original album, newly transferred and remastered by the group's long-time engineer, Udi Koomran, and a 16 page booklet telling the story of the band and this album, with many never-before seen photos as well as the aforementioned 20' of bonus material!"-Cuneiform
