ZNR was the French duo of Hector Zazou and Joseph
Racaille (hence, Zazou ’n’ Racaille) active in the mid to
late ’70s. Their 1976 debut, Barricade 3, is an anti-pop
masterpiece that truly defies categorization; it makes perfect
sense that ZNR appears on the infamous Nurse With
Wound list.
Featuring an array of seemingly dichotomous instruments
(piano, synthesizers, woodwinds, electric guitar and
more) as well as genuinely bizarre vocals, the album is
composed of fifteen odd experiments using a loose framework
of analog electronics, avant-garde rock, jazz influences,
and post-structuralist études.
As The Shadow Ring’s Graham Lambkin writes, “The
debut ZNR LP has long remained one of my all-time faves.
A collision of eccentric Satie-esque miniatures, strange keyboard
/ synth explorations and the occasional song, delivered
in a mixture of French and Spanish tongues. I always
think of the creepy, over-ripe vocals on ‘Seynete’ as one of
the LP’s most memorable moments, but there are many.”
Despite its schizophrenic mystique, Barricade 3 is very
witty and surprisingly accessible with hints of Robert Wyatt,
Kevin Ayers and Perrey-Kingsley. This long out-ofprint
vinyl reissue reproduces the original gatefold design
including illustration by Don Van Vliet
