Nato 574/ISBN: 2-84907-574-4 Le chronatoscaphe


Le chronatoscaphe is a 128-page book celebrating 25 years of nato and chabada through a mixture of cartoons from thirteen contributors, 60 pages of photographs by Guy Le Querrrec, 25 pages of essay and commentary (all in French), a discography, and 3 CDs celebrating the wide variety of music and musicians recorded for the labels during this time. The photographs are excellent and most are not widely known: Evan Parker glanced over Charlie Watts' shoulder, Michel Doneda in an outdoor duo with John Zorn, Han Bennink in the woods, Don and Neneh Cherry, The Melody Four (both the three and the four of them), and lots of Lol Coxhill. The 3 CDs contain tracks that have never previously been available on CD, in addition to those that have been unavailable for some time. Interspersed between the 'real' tracks are snippets and combinations from other recordings, given the generic title, Radio Chronatoscaphe.
