it wouldn't be a lie to say that ron lessard / emil beaulieau are absurd's godfathers. back in 96 under a terribly difficult period for me ron has been a great help and actually helped absurd in its early steps. being the newsletter dedicated to pure's releases (& related for absurd activities like alli poli in greece and also dedicated to the ever beloved elgaland-vargaland).
being fond of the 5 first emil beaulieau cds on pure did a kind of a compilation, adding the ones i loved the most. emil kindly allowed me to do a tape issue of it that became perverse series's act #2. simple tape with a transparent xerox of the early pure inserts, taken then the boy outside the old rrr store that was the cover of the first rrr 5lp boxset.
almost a decade later thanks to the birth of orion elafros, in xanthi, was reissued in a limited edition, on a slim cd case, bearing as cover a photo of a picture of my friend costas tsiknis (from the city of amphissa, phokis) that did for the bar 'stavento' (lies at the isle of kimolos).
