THE CLASSIC LEGENDARY ALBUM FEATURING CYRILLE VERDEAUX, MEMBERS OF GONG AND OTHER TOP MUSICIANS OF THE FRENCH PSYCHEDELIC UNDERGROUND OF THE 70'S! Cyrille Verdeaux is a classical trained keyboard player who plays organ in Babylone, a band from the Rock pas Dgnr collective, related to the Actuel magazine, at the beginning of the 1970s. In 1972 the band splits and Verdeaux joins Barricade for six months. In 1973, Cyrille records a demo of one of his own compositions for piano. Actuels music journalist -who also plays bass in Dragon- Jean-Pierre Lentin suggests Verdeaux shall send his work to the new-born UK label Virgin. That same year 1973 Virgin has just launched its first release, Mike Oldfields Tubular Bells. It becomes a top seller very fast, helping the consolidation of the project led by future millionaire Richard Branson, and with the good taste of his partner Simon Draper, Virgin will start to add other delicatessen to a catalogue that will have no equal in the history of underground music. Through Tim Blake, Gongs synth player at the time (one of Bransons first artists), Cyrille Verdeaux signs for Virgin in 1974. That same year Clearlight Symphony is recorded (clearlight stands for a type of LSD). For its recording sessions Cyrille uses two different line-ups, each in charge of each of the two parts of the work. On one side theres ex Babylone members Christian Boul, Lard Frees Gilbert Artman and bassman Martin Isaacs. They record along with Verdeaux on Virgins Manor studio. The other side will be canned at Kaleidophon studios, ran by White Noises David Vorhaus, where Cyrille is joined by Gong members Tim Blake, Steve Hillage and Didier Malherbe.
