French band Metal Urbain were the first release on Rough Trade Records in 1978 with the “Paris Marquis”/”Cle De Contact” 7”. They were equally in love with the Stooges-to-’76 Punk wall of chainsaw guitars and the electronic foolery of Fripp and Eno. The music is ferocious but tightly executed – blaring synths, a chintzy drum box, spat out French words and gauchely nihilistic guitar solos. Thuggish punk chants fight with a space age menace and the powerful metronomic playing parallels the dumb of the Ramones with the smart of Wire; the art of Chrome with the nag of Cabaret Voltaire. Includes the A’s and B’s of all 4 singles from 1977 through to 1981; various album tracks and unreleased cuts. Extensive liner notes.
