To the distress of many, Hellebore released only one album “Il y a Des Jours”. Originally recorded over a 20-day period, from December 1983 to January 1984, it was not until 1985, when “Il y a Des Jours” found the light of day, when was released under Ayaa Records. Because of the limited 1007 issues, along with the extravagant sleeve and inlay design, “Il y a Des Jours” has become a much sought after item among collectors. The album moulds 7 blinding tracks, from as many genres as one can possibly fathom; Classical chamber music, Zeuhl, New wave, Free-Jazz, Electronic etc; while maintaining an almost dangerously relaxing state amidst the onslaught of oddities.
Though criminally overlooked, Hellebore’s music is a must for anyone interested in how a wide range of musical traditions can come together to form a deceptively simple, sonorous whole. A masterpiece of RIO and music in general, and a seminal influence on later music of the absurd. Essential listening.
