Nimal




Last.fm refers to Nimal as a Slovenian group, presumably because of the key role played by Bratko Bibic. Here though is the first recording by Nimal and he's not even present. Nimal is more accurately viewed as an offshoot of Debile Menthol. This is very much Momo Rossel's vision, as he wrote and arranged the music, played most of the instruments and did the engineering. Tom Cora, Pippin Barnett, Dominique Diebold, Gilles Rieder, Didier Pietton and Victor de Bros appear as guests. It serves as a template for Nimal's subsequent work, with all tracks but Dimanche re-recorded in a more fully realized band format for Voix de Surface.

1. La semaine des quatre jeudi - Part I - IV (10:12)
2. Dimanche (2:46)
3. Animal triste (4:35)
4. La marelle (4:30)
5. Au zoo (4:01)
6. Un drame (2:10)
7. Le tram (1:44)
8. Maligne (3:14)
