Wlud biography
Short-lived French prog band,found in 1978 in the beautiful city of Colmar near the French-German border. They consisted of Phillipe Wendling on keys, Bernard Labroche on guitars, Gigi Untersinger on bass and Gianni Drago on drums; reportedly they were all highly educated musicians. Actually, the name of the band comes from the initial letters of the members' surnames. WLUD only managed to produce two albums in a short time, ''Carrycroch'' and ''Second'', but both are good examples of old-fashioned instrumental prog with plenty of jazzy and symphonic twists.

Recommended to all fans of 70's melodic instrumental progressive rock.

Review by b_olariu
Prog Reviewer

3 stars Wlud is a progressive rock band from France with two albums in their pockets released at the end of the '70's. This one is the second as implies the ttitle of the album, released in 1979 ans reissued by Musea in 1998. The music Wlud offers is keybord dominated album, but not in ELP style, only minor parts are alike, they sounds more like Rick Wakeman solo or they remind me of Carnegie or Miklagard, and I mean blistering key passages but good melted with some jazzy moments here and there. I like how this guys play and interlude to each other, only problem on this album is the production, the sound, very flat for this kind of music, the drums for ex sounds empty without that solid and full beat as a drum must sound. Anyway, good towards great in places, quite unnoticed band then like now, all pieces stands as good with a plus on Ay or Rocky, the rest arealso good.3.5 , some fine moments even some of them are as other reviewers observed little naive, but not bad at all. Nice to be discovered but many prog listners

3 stars Short-lived French prog band,found in 1978 in the beautiful city of Colmar near the French- German borders.They consisted of Phillipe Wendling on keys,Bernard Labroche on guitars,Gigi Untersinger on bass and Gianni Drago on drums,reportedly they were all highly educated musicians.Actually the name of the band comes from the initial letters of the members' surnames.Theur debut ''Carrycroch'' came out in 1979 on Omega Studio.

Wlud played all instrumental jazzy progressive rock in their first effort with often a symphonic flavor.Their style recalls CAMEL and GENTLE GIANT in moments due to the melodic guitar playing of Labroche and the light interplays with Wendling's organ and electric piano.There are also plenty of jazzy guitar chops to be found along with long organ passages and electric piano virtuosic solos (RETURN TO FOREVER-styled),the rhythm section is decent but far from anything trully adventuruous,while the sound is very old-fashioned,resembling more to a band from early-70's.

Overall ''Carrycroch'' didn't break any new grounds,but it was definitely quite an achievement for a band back in 1979 to play such a non-commercial style of music and moreover in such a professional and inspiring way.Warmly recommended.

Thanks to clarke2001 for the artist addition.
