Described as a “clever mix of poetry and progressive rock” the oldest French group still in activity after their first concert in Belfort on January 31st in 1970 now see three generations attending their concerts which have never been publicized by mainstream media but have always sold out.

In the past referred to as the French Genesis they played alongside them at the Reading Festival in 1973 and were treated to a standing ovation in front of 30,000 people according to Déchamps “it was very impressive, however French journalists were at lunch and didn’t see it, which is why he refers to them as the most famous French group to have gone unnoticed”.
