A band Offenbach progressive rock and blues-psych that defined the band's sound in the 70's. This is the first of Offenbach's early "prog-blues-psych-era" recordings (along with "Tabarnac", "Saint-Chrone de Neant" and "Bulldozer").... Inspired by British blues-rock bands such as Cream and Deep Purple, Offenbach’s repertoire initially comprised pop songs of the day, as well as blues-rock and original material. Its first LP, Offenbach Soap Opera (1972) included two songs in English, as well as the early classics “Faut que j'me pousse” and “Câline de blues,” which would come to define the band’s sound. Its second album, Saint-Chrone de néant (1973), was recorded live on 30 November 1972 during the Mass for the Dead at Montréal‘s Saint Joseph's Oratory.
