Les Maledictus Sound was the creature of Jean-Pierre Massiera, the inventor
of French progressive-rock.
Les Maledictus Sound (Canusa, 1968 - Mucho Gusto, 2000) is
a tour de force of stylitic metamorphoses.
Massiera also composed Visitors (1974), another psychedelic nightmare
that featured a supergroup of French veterans.
Massiera then moved to Canada and recorded another experimental work,
L'Etrange Monsieur Whinster (1976), credited to Horrific Child, which
includes three suites: two poems (Baudelaire and Lautreamont), a tribal "danse
macabre" and a piece of musique concrete.

Jean-Pierre Massiera's convoluted career is summarized on the compilation Midnight Massiera (Finders Keepers, 2009).
Even better are the separate anthologies
Psychoses Freakoid (1963-1978) (Mucho Gusto, 2007), for his
psychedelic side, and
Psychoses Discoid (1976-1981) (Mucho Gusto, 2007), for his disco side.
Massiera's ventures into "space-disco" yielded
Space Woman (1977 - Mucho Gusto, 2010), credited to Herman's Rocket,
Galactic Soul (1978 - Mucho Gusto, 2010), credited to Venus Gang.
