Boule (tape, Ptose Production, 1985)


I never knew what 'Boule' meant, but it was one of the 'star' tracks by the French band Ptose, but it is also the name of this compilation. Maybe there is a link to christmas, if I look at the cover. According to Discogs all tracks are called 'Boule', maybe its a cover tape? Included are Anne Gillis, Renaldo & The Loaf, Nigel Jacklin, Utilisation Du Vieux Port, Rob Van Wijngaarden, Harri Englund, John J. Cabanis, Mark Lane, Die Endzeitakrobaten, Wolfgang Wiggers, Die Form, Ice 9, The Grief DDAA, Ericka Irganon, Satellite, DZ Lectric, Collision Experimentale, The Legendary Pink Dots, ZZe, 1/2 Japanese, Les Canigous, Van Kaye & Ignit.

Hello,
"Boule" is the dog in the comic strip "Boule et Bill" designed by Roba.

"Boule" is a french word that means "ball" and in that famous Ptôse song it's the name of a dog.
The lyrics say : "Boule, Boule, viens ici mon chien, viens ici sale chien. - Non non non, je n'viendrai pas, houpla houplala" ("Boule, Boule, come here my dog, come here nasty dog - No no no, I won't come, houpla houplala").
And that tape is a cover compilation...

In Czech "boule" means a bulge or a lump. But I guess that this name is more from the French one...

This compilation was created by all artists that had released music through Ptose Production Presente, a cassette label. The christmas cover is because the tape was sent out to all the artist as a christmas gift. The first edition (not shown here) was a limited edition of 100 copies and had "Joyeux Noël" on the cover. This one is probably the second edition, released some years later with a slightly different track listing.
