STANISLAS TOHON ET LE TCHINK SYSTEM ZEMIDJAN ACC001 TC 6.50 COL
I don't recognise the style of music at all and without the manufacturers notes I'm totally at a loss to tell you much about him except that his full name is Stanislas Tohon. What I can tell you is that the album is bleeding fantastic. A modern album definitely and by an artist who's going to go far. The title track's got a bit of Rap the others have something of everything from 'Hommage a Franco''s guitar masterpiece to 'Neva' with it's pouring water and heavy metal guitar! This album's even got a cigarette smoking gourd with a cap and specks that plays guitar on the cover!!!!! This guy and his band are just smashing. This album has joined my list of favorites on the first listening.
