Arthur Satan from French garage psych rock band J.C. Satan’s debut solo album on Born Bad.

The distinctive backing choirs on “Free” are reminiscent of an encounter between the Pole Krzysztof Komeda (“Fearless Vampire Killers”, the soundtrack of “Rosemary’s Baby”) and the American collective Elephant 6 (the Apples in Stereo, Elf Power, Neutral Milk Hotel, of Montreal, The Olivia Tremor Control etc.) “The Nap” is teatime: Arthur’s the host, John Fahey the guest.

“Summer” starts off like a lullaby on the metallophone and evolves into something of a Donovan song, minus the unexpected crankshaft solo. “Love bleeds from you neck” is somewhere between acid folk song and medieval lament.

“Time Is Mine” might be the track most evocative of J.C. Satàn… Though actually all the tracks on ‘So Far So Good’ hover between tradition and modernity, obscure sunshine pop, good old classics and weird experiments.

“She’s Long Gone” evokes Brian Wilson’s Beach Boys roaming through the English countryside looking for the perfect cottage.

Tracks: Summer / Free / Love Bleeds From Your Neck / She’s Long Gone / She’s Hotter Than The Sun / The Boy In The
