La Confrérie des fous - 1979 [FRA] - Vinyl Rip @256

With members of Malicorne, La Bamboche, Mélusine

Founded in 1979 by Lawrence Vercambre (Malicorne), La confrérie des Fous is an original folk group representative "delusional" in late 1970. Its musicians develop a folk rock, tinged with ancient music.
Created around a concept, fools fairs in the Middle Ages, during which madness became legal, the band is of variable geometry. It includes at least 8 people on stage 12 on the single album recorded by the group. (...) The "women folk" that are Emmanuelle Parrenin (ex-Mélusine), Evelyne Girardon (ex-La Bamboche) and Valérie Terrell (former Equinoxe), realize the opportunity for an important voice work independently of other musicians. Laurent Vercambre manages, for its part, the instrumental parts and interpretation of songs. Incidentally the irruption of a string quartet, in which are already Vercambre Laurent and Pierre Ganem violin.

On stage, The Brotherhood appears with a lot of costumes and makeup in a comedy show that attempts reflection of medieval crazy celebrations.

Hi, this is an excellent post. The vinyl LP is long out of print, and there is no talk of reissuing it (I had a chat with Emmanuelle Parrenin about it last year).
Thank you very much for sharing.
