Here’s another unjustly overlooked band that never received the wider attention it deserved, a victim of geographic isolation (despite their English name, the group hailed from northeast Spain), or maybe the fierce competition between likeminded musicians for a loyal but dwindling fan base in the late 1970s.

Lineup: Inga Rumpf: lead vocal, acoustic guitar, percussion Adrian M. Askew: keyboards, vocals Alex Conti: guitars, vocals Karl-Heinz Schott: bass Ringo Funk: drums, percussionAtlantis was not only the name of the legendary island, the famous Greek author Plato mentioned, but also the name of a band formed by ex-Frumpy musicians Inga Rumpf, Jean-Jacques Kravetz and Karl-Heinz Schott, in late Summer, 1972.
Thirsty Moon’s second album is definitely titled as risque, mostly due to its title and rather ugly semi-erotic cartoon artwork, but the music proves the title wrong.
4.5 stars really!!! With a slightly changed line-up (drummer being replaced and an extre percussionist also), Sloche made an incredible confirmation with their second album, the stunning Amerindian-laced artwork covered StadaconÃ©. Still headed by the double keyboard attack and having plenty of back-up by their guitarist and the rest of the band, StadaconÃ© is relatively close to their debut although more towards Mahavishnu and GG, than the debut. One of the odd thing about this album is that it is dedicated to Pierre Boucard who helped write the two epics and that the album was recorded intwo distinct sessions produced by Ouellet for one and Desbien (who had done such a great job on their debut).
