b b i BBI (CD, £15.50)
BBI is Philippe BUSSONNET on bass (MAGMA since 1995, ONE SHOT), Jean-Claude BUIRE on drums (OFFERING in the late 80s on "3" & "A-Fi´eh") & Laurent IMPERATO on guitar (founder member of XAAL - although not on either of their 2 CDs). This was recorded in 1996 but never released before. BBI is a power trio that mixes the rockiest side of ONE SHOT with the intense electricity of KING CRIMSON circa "Red" (minus the vocals, it's all instrumental). Intense & powerful, this smokes & Ph. Bussonnet adds his massive bass sound. Three of the six tracks (those written by Ph. Bussonnet) were later recorded (differently) by ONE SHOT on their first CD three years later.
