One Man Band



Claude Perraudin returned to the studio in early 80s for another solo effort. There is no date listed on this lp but there was a single from it released in 1981 so I suspect that would be the date for Jogging. Once again Claude is playing guitars, keyboards, drums and percussion and providing heavily processed vocals on Speaking Birds. The tracks range from upbeat synthpopesque exercises to very laid back relaxed jams. Perraudin had a good sense of humor which you will notice on a couple tunes. This is the last of his records I've been able to locate. He is rumored to have recorded a record in 1989 called Janus under the name 'Greg Baker' and another in 1999 under his own name called Guitar Tenderness. He died in 2001.

I like Mutation 24 very much. Would you be so kind to post Jogging again ? Thanks at forehand! You know it probably but
CP was also Doctor Electro who made the single Electromelody (1978).
Other records (mostly library music) of CP see :
