Machtoc - Premiere Foi

From Dieppe France. This is their only full-length but they did have a 6 song EP on Unicorn called "Zippy" that I am still looking for.
I don't understand a word they're saying as they seem to speaking some sort of moon-man language but the music is as good as it gets.*

1 Ecoute un Peu
2 Trou Noir
3 1'ere Foi
4 Arlequin
5 La Berceuse
6 Machtoc
7 Le Nul
8 L'Espoir
9 Regime Sex
10 Saxo Folies


*What do you call a person who speaks 2 languages? - bilingual
What do you call a person who speaks 3 languages? - trilingual
What do you call a person who speaks many languages? - a polyglot

What do you call a person who speaks only one language? - an American

I can't tell what the band is saying but I'm assuming it's white power Nazi shit given their record label, Rebelles Européens, ( is a Nazi label. I'm not quite sure why a band with these politics would choose this style of music or this type of imagery. Maybe this is the reason for the black and yellow checkers? I don't know, possibly they aren't Nazis, but wow, how blind do you have to be when your label mates are Légion 88, Bunker 84, Brutal Combat, ect. Anyway, for what it's worth, I thought this might be helpful. Great blog by the way,

don't assume Darrin. their lyrics don't contain even the slightiest reference to nazi shit. trust me I'm French. why they were on RE remains an enigma indeed.

Thanks so much for posting this album, I was really looking for it since a long time.

This album is not right wing by the way, RE were signing also non-political bands in the beginning,
