Present was founded in 1979 by guitarist/composer Roger Trigaux, who first came to attention as the co-leader of Univers Zero, which he co-founded in 1974.
After two now legendary albums with Univers Zero ('Univers Zero' - 1977 and 'Heresie' - 1979), he left to have the chance to create his own, personal musical vision. Present ended up being a quartet of Roger, pianist Alain Rochette and two Univers Zero members: bassist Christian Genet, and the other co-founder of Univers Zero, drummer Daniel Denis. So, basically, the sound became a more rock oriented encapsulation of the unique music Roger had been composing and performing for over half a decade.
Originally released in 1980, 'Triskaidekaphobie' (the fear of the number 13), the band's first album, was an instant classic of complex, Rock In Opposition-style electric chamber rock. It is presented here in a newly remastered edition and featuring a 16 page booklet of the story of the band and this album, many never-before seen photos, as well as 20' of never-released bonus material!
...a turbulent masterpiece that leaves a residue of angst lingering long after the CD ends. --Alternative Press
