Once again delving deep into their archive of obscurities and long forgotten rediscoveries, Finders Keepers present this 1974 collaboration between French prog-pop star Jacky Chalard (and his group, Dynastie Crisis) with science fiction writer/voice actor, Gilbert Deflez. This album is like a psychedelic radio play, setting incredible French rock music backdrops against spoken passages. As tends to be the case with the best FInders Keepers releases, listening to Je Suis Vivant, Mais J'ai Peur is a transportive experience, taking you to a corner of the musical world you probably never knew even existed, and even if you don't understand the French well enough to keep up with what's going on, the band's soundtrack and the atmospheric sound designs that line the album give you ample cause to investigate this. Expect some great vintage pop songs and instrumental workouts nestled among the narrative pieces too - recommended. - boomkat
