Help finding a group

I heard a group on a radio program from San Luis Obispo called Alien Ear Music back in the 80's and I have been looking for them ever since.

I am not sure how the bands name is spelled but it is pronounced slow-shay. or something close to that.

They were a french Canadian group.

Has anyone ever heard of them? Any info on albums, mp3's web site etc.


thanks - Mark

Thumbs up Sloche

Mark,

I found this in the Gibraltar Encyclopedia of Prog Rock.

Link to it via:

Sloche [Canada]

Discography:
J'un Oeil (75)
Stadaconé (76)


Offbeat fusion-based prog from Quebec. Stadaconé starts off very jazzy and gradually gets more and more complex as the album progresses. Superb sax and guitar work, but the mesmerizing ARP synthesizer leads are the standout on the instrumental edge. The keyboardist has a fiery synth tone not unlike Et Cetera's Marie Bernard. Also notable are the strange Swingle Singers-like massed wordless vocals, almost some sort of scat-singing. J'un Oeil has some more conventional singing (with lyrics on more than just one track this time round), but is still outstanding. One of Canada's most striking bands.
