Gonzaï Records present a reissue of George Grünblatt's K-Priss, originally released in 1980. Following the 2016 reissue of Pôle, the 1975 album from Besombes & Rizet (FBK 003LP, 2016), Gonzaï Records goes on with réhabilitation of French weird-but-great bands. Next step is K-Priss by George Grünblatt, co-founder of the cult band Heldon, author of a solo LP inspired by Philip K. Dick, recorded in 1977 then published in 1980. After that, George Grünblatt became a famous psychiatrist for the next 40 years, 'til Gonzaï Records knocked to the door... Recorded on 1977 at Ramses Records studios, the first and very last album from George Grüblatt sounds like an instrumental disco-prog weirdness of 38 minutes, where you can find the best rhythm section of Paris at that time - bassist Didier Batard from Space Art, Christophe, and Heldon, Michel Ettori from Weidorje, and Jean-Philippe Goude - reunited around the two founding members of Heldon, Richard Pinhas and George Grünblatt. Since he began music, Grünblatt tried to conciliate his two loves, music and psychiatry, alternating lessons with Gilles Deleuze, Michel Foucault, and Jean François Lyotard and ramshackle recording sessions with Heldon, where he played synths and guitars from the beginning till It's Always Rock'n'Roll (1975). By that time, he decided to record what still remains his only solo album, K-Priss, from the name of an alien hallucinatory drug invented par Philip K. Dick in The Three Stigmata Of Palmer Eldritch (1955). Five instrumental tracks, oscillating between futurist free jazz and novo-rock. Mutant Sounds on K-Priss: "It's a kind of Grail. But it's not just a big experimental French record, it's also a big piece of 'French cheese', an incredible record in many ways." Grünblatt signs with K-Priss one of those indescribable pieces that make all the charm of the marginal France of the seventies. After the recording, the freak will be invited into the German forest for a week to play with Klaus Schulze (Tangerine Dream, Ash Ra Tempel) but he will finally decide to devote himself entirely to his profession of psychiatrist and psychoanalyst until... Gonzaï Records, 40 years later, did find him to reissue this album oh so disturbed. For fans of Cluster & Eno, Bernard Szajner, Jean-Michel Jarre, Zombie Zombie, and instrumental science fiction.
