IPD Recommendation: Campag Velocet - Bon Chic Bon Genre. (Album)

Artist: Campag Velocet
Album: Bon Chic Bon Genre

Campag Velocet formed in 1993 in London.  They didn't release this, their debut album until 1999.  I was turned onto this album when I heard the title track 'Bon Chic Bon Genre' as Brother took the stage at Middlesbrough Uncle Alberts.  I traced the track and the wonders of this album are now mine forever.

The odd thing is, the rest of the album bears almost no resemblance to the track Bon Chic Bon Genre but I still love it.

Imagine if Johnny Marr had joined the Sex Pistols yeah?  That gives you an idea of the sound of the bulk of the album.  There are also bits of Primal Scream in there, giving some of the tracks a trippy feel but not quite reaching psychedelia.

I think they've dispanded now but this album was worth them existing...

Give it a Go....  LOUD in your car..... The drunker the better..
