HELDON

ALLEZ-TEIA

SUPERIOR VIADUCT


Format: LP
Cata No: SV028
Barcode: 857176003287
Allez-Téia, the second album by French guitarist Richard
Pinhas under the Heldon moniker, was originally released
in 1975 on the artist’s own Disjuncta imprint. Far from the
band’s prog-tinged trio lineup, Allez-Téia features a menagerie
of guitars, Mellotron and analog synthesizers.
While opening track “In the Wake of King Fripp” pays
homage to King Crimson in its title, the album’s heady textures
and rhythmic meditations are more reminiscent of
the German Kosmiche movement (Cluster, Harmonia, et
al.) and post-rock experimentalists, such as Jim O’Rourke
and Gastr del Sol. Acoustic guitar even makes a rare appearance—
on the beautiful and melancholy “Aphanisis.”
With front cover artwork depicting the events of May ’68
in Paris (by renowned photojournalist Gilles Caron), these
dark ambient sounds make Allez-Téia perhaps the most
revolutionary release in Heldon’s influential catalogue,
foreshadowing Pinhas’s incredible solo work for decades
to come.
