Jean-Pierre Decerf – Space Oddities 1975 - 1979 (Born Bad Records 068)
Oddball space disco tracks compiled from library tracks composed between 1975 and 1978. Big tip!!
From the early 70s to the mid-80s, this self-taught musician composed about twenty albums of production and library music with generic cover art and titles (Out of the Way, Magical Ring, Keys of the Future, Pulsations, More and More, etc.) that evoke interstellar travel. These experimental discs, made with love, humility and rudimentary means, had no ambition other than to accompany other peoples' images. By exhuming these obscurities from the dustbin of history, BORN BAD have decided otherwise. Archaeologists with an agenda, they seek to give Jean Pierre Decerf the renown he deserves: that of an innovator whose rhythmic, synthetic compositions inspired the harbingers of the French Touch (Air comes to mind), not to mention some East Coast rappers.
