Cadavres exquis...




Little interesting information about Little Nemo except for the fact that it's a French group originally composed of Olivier Champeau and Vincent Le Gallo. Group that will remain mainly in the musical history of the 80s for the high-caliber single "A handful of sand", single released in 1988.


For that reason alone, we had to devote this article to them.


To discover or rediscover.

Clips :


1986 ... a first title of certain quality but which will go completely unnoticed. Not easy for a small French group to emerge on the international scene even if they made the effort to sing in English ...



1987 ... the sound is structured, just like the style. Unfortunately in a Cold Wave niche which is not really the general public's cup of tea. A daring bias but above all a risky bias ...



1987 ... the group does not have to be ashamed of the quality of the titles he produces, far from it. The originality is there and shows a more than obvious potential, it is clear ...



1987 ... after what to do with this potential if it is not put at the service of all. The group isolated himself by entering this very special musical niche and only reserves its music for a handful of initiates ...



1988 ... a group that had everything to do great things. Unfortunately fate will have confined them to playing supporting roles from start to finish ...



1989 ... anyway, they continue their adventure without worrying too much about the few results in the Charts. Afterwards, rightly or wrongly, that's something else ...



1989 ... the group is now in full possession of its means and proceeds quietly. Nothing exceptional but a good job, quite simply. We will be happy with it !



1990 ... a group which will have missed out on its history and which would frankly have deserved recognition much higher than it was. Fate will have decided otherwise ...



1990 ... the fact of changing the decade will not change the situation concerning them but they continue to believe in it anyway. And they are right because in music, everything is always possible ...



1990 ... they really did not lack much to move from the shadows to the light. But when it doesn't want, it doesn't ...



1991 ... despite all their efforts and their desire to do well, the exit door is fast approaching. They will at least have tried as they say ...



1992 ... a title full of finesse to end the adventure in the best possible way. An adventure that would have deserved a greater success but it is hard to fight on equal terms with the Anglo-Saxon heavyweights when you are little Frenchies ...
