Originally released in 1984 on cassette by ADN tapes, these early works from Bernard Pruvost and Pierre Bastien use an unusual array of instruments to create irregular improvised music with a No Wave aesthetic.

Nu Creative Methods: Superstitions (Music a la Coque)

Label: Music a la Coque    
Released in: Italy    

" of the more fascinating aspects of this album is that it sounds quite like Bastien's mechanical music, although it is all played manually.The music has a tremendous energy and the duo's playing is inspired; their rhythms almost telepathically tight.The instrument's true identity remains a mistery, but it's best to simply enjoy their rich soundworld for what it is."-Mike Barnes, Wire Magazine
