• Frenetic Dancing - test pressing Gougnaf Mouvement - December 1984
  • Night Dance / Femme Fatale / You say why ? / Mad Train Recorded by Godefroy de Maupeou at Juvisy sur Orge in November 1984 during 5 days. These four tracks should have been the second Gougnaf Mouvement issue but weren't due to vinyl pressing problems. More than 30 7" were given to the band's friends to avoid collector's greed among the forty-three existing. Mad Train should have been part of Best of Vol.2 from Ozagen Rds. You say why has been issued by the english label Criminal Damage on the compilation "Raw cuts" vol. 1.

    Fifty pieces were re-issued in January, the 30th 1989.

  • Frenetic Dancing - Gougnaf Mouvement GM005 - January 1985
  • Night Dance / Femme Fatale The final version of the previous 7". Recorded by Godefroy de Maupeou at Juvisy sur Orge in November 1984. Hundred copies were given with the fanzine Comme un boomerang #3 in December 1986 Some sleeves of the previous test-pressing were used as promo items. 1000 copies for the first pressing. Femme Fatale, written by Eric has nothing to do with the Velvet Underground song. MRR : Great rocked-out pop-punk. Very straightforward, driving, fuzzed-out R'n'R ... catchy and powerful. B-side is not the Velvet Underground song. Sounds : First single from this French four piece who have no volume controls on their equipment. Loud and louder depending on their mood. Played at speed and trashing straight to your heart. Nineteen #14 (Feb. 85) : The sleeve is black, poor, wonderful. A proud photo on the verso. And the record, compact full, saturated, incandescent, loud, loud, loud. Two real great songs. Rock and roll at the native state. Wild. Lyres, Nomads, Sonics, Australians, make place, and hat in hand ! Never a 7" made me such a strong impression since the first Feelgood (ten years exactly !). I would be almost scared to See Les Thugs on stage. Scared to be disappointed. Scared that they would not be at the same level as these two great faces.
