Les Goths - "Reve De Silence" 1968

This is an unreleased album recorded for EMI France from Les Goths. Preceded by two singles for EMI: "I Remember" b/w "Turnover", and "Les Jour Etait Gris" b/w "Out of the Sun" in 1968. The band was comprised of brothers Gino (guitar/vocals) & Bruno Frascone (drums/vocals), & Bernard Faucher (bass). The band started out a four piece, until their producer, Yves Jouniaux, dismissed their drummer as he felt the chemistry as a trio was superior.
 The two singles reached cult status in France. In addition to the two singles, the band recorded a 10 track album that never saw release until 2011 on Shadocks Music.

Musically, you can hear their influences of Cream and Hendrix, with guitar parts reminiscent of Randy Holden. This French psychedelic band recorded probably one of the best albums from that period in France. Incredible heavy psych with both French and English vocals. 
Detailed info about the band is somewhat scarce, but you can read an interview with Bruno Frascone HERE
