Triode is a total obscure and forgotten french psych prog band
from early 70's who manage to release a sole album in 1971
named "On N'a Pas Fini D'avoir Tout Vu" at Futura label.
The album will be released on CD by Mellow records almost
30 years later.
The album is instrumental entirely dominated by excellent flute playing by Michel Edelin, who will please fans of progressive
music for sure, the similarity is with of course Jethro Tull or
some bands from canterbury from that period, maybe early
Caravan or Traffic for ex, but Triode plays a more jazzy kind
of instrumental prog with fascinating flute interludes.
The psychedelic sound of the guitar combined with brilliant
flute chops gives overall an excellent example of how great
and imaginative were the bands in the '70's in progressive
The album is up tempo, not a single piece is weak, nice musicianship, specialy on opening track Magic Flower,
Moulos Grimpos, Blahsha or the cover of Beatles - Come
together show a band in big form, but with all that they
remain totaly unknown to larger public, even in prog circles
is kinda forgotten.
