"This releases compiles two very obscure works from an EP release from 1986 on Illusion Productions (DDAA - Déficit des Années Antérieures- related label) and an LP released in 1990 by KK Records. La STPO stands for La Société des Timides à la parade des Oiseaux which roughly translates to 'the shy peoples society at the parade of the birds'. STPO are of that crazy RIO vein, a little like Etron Fou, Debile Menthol, Look de Bouk... except much more theatrical and schizophrenic, thus a little like Albert Marcoeur too. Intensive, complex and overloaded with French jabbering vocal theatrics. Serious progressive stylings mixed with Dada Rock, Lumpy Gravy era Zappa and vocal tone poem antics of Salvador Dali."
