"Rock Classics" Volume I
Label: UMC (Universal Music Catalogue)
From titles like "La Guitaristic House Organisation" and "I Love Ma Guitare," you get a pretty good idea of what to expect from France's Rinocerose: house beats with lots of jagged, overdriven guitars. Nobody talks about them much these days, but these Daft Punk acolytes were definitely a precursor to the whole Ed Banger punky disco thing. In fact, between the current filter-disco resurgence and dance music's general anything-goes climate, the group's 2000 debut sounds even more relevant, more than a decade later.
