Venus Gang - Jean Pierre Massiera - Psychoses Freakoid (1963-1978) - 2007 - Mucho Gusto
Originally appearing on the 1978 LP Synthetic Soul by the french band Venus Gang. Montreal label Mucho Gusto included it on a compilation of music performed and/or produced by Jean Pierre Massiera. Not limited to, but certainly heavy on the spaced-out future disco.
