BETTER PRICE! Limited to strictly 600 copies, containing 4 individual CDs in an embossed collector metal-box. Founded in 1983 in Paris by Jamil Saïarh (vocals), Pierre Biss (synths), Paul Dufayet de la Tour (drums), and Jean Zundel (bass), Dazibao gave their first gig at the Pali-Kao factory. A first single "Les Tambours Lointains", recorded on a Portastudio, was released soon after on Mr.Vinyl Records. Lucas Zabojnik's arrival on guitar allowed the band a real take-off and successive gigs. The 12" "Sahd" was produced by New Wave Records, several singles and an album ("Les Musiques de la Honte") were released, thanks to the ViSA-labels enlightened activism, with "Amok" being their last LP in the original line-up (1988). Reduced to a four-member band before being joined by Thierry Bertomeu (sampler, guitars), Dazibao was now managed by Philippe SaintLos. Hou La La / Zelig / Bondage Records enabled the band to record "Shems/Soleil" in Brussels - produced by Zip Zinc, of early Mtal Urbain fame. It was their last album. For ten years of existence, Dazibao piled up records and tours in France, Europe and Canada, participated in all major festivals and supported a number of famous international acts. If critics were always eulogistic, commercial success didn't come. In fact, Dazibao was first and foremost a rock band even if lyrics were often sung in Arabic, Jamil being half Moroccan. A "folkoric" success, for instance, was forbidden to a band whose members refused to take part in any community, any fashion; whose various influences were so integrated that they became unrecognizable; who were not "alternative," but truly independent; a band, finally, with which the audience found it difficult to identify. Still: Dazibao have been re-valuated by crictics and fans alike over past years and are often referred to as one of the most original acts EVER to come out of the French Cold Wave scene! What really counts - beyond
financial success - is the quality and originality of this projects sound! A real milestone in French Cold Wave culture!
This Box-Set features for the first time ALL official DAZIBAO material collected on 3CDs (most material appears on CD for the very first time), including all singles (also the very rare Rainmakers split single with Canadian act NUMB) and many tracks that appeared on compilations only. Additionally, CD4 offers an exclusive live-concert of Dazibao featuring not only many of the best tracks by this influential act in quite different live-versions, but also some songs that have never made it on any official release and that remained unpublished so far!
