After the success of the ‘Anyway’ 12’’, OTO, now a three-piece band played a few gigs before entering the studio to record their debut (and final) album ‘Purge An Urge’.
Produced by Vincent Hachet from French industrial duo Geinst Naït, ‘Purge An Urge’ was supposed to contain 9 tracks but the final release saw only 6 tracks. Cécile from fellow Nancy’s band Candidate even did some backing vocals.
Released in 1986 on French label Divine known to have released Mecano, Tuxedomoon, Fra Lippo Lippi, Minimal Compact…, it was poorly promoted and was mainly sold in Nancy area. But the music was as vibrant as their first effort and evokes bands like Second Layer, End Of Data, Das Kabinette, Grauzone or Martin Dupont.
Pascal Hubert then formed and still perform in French successful alternative band Double Nelson.
Now a much sought-after record ‘Purge An Urge’ is reissued for the very first time on vinyl.
