Watch: Cold water Hossegor

Ben Matson
Swellnet Dispatch

France ain't just warm water and summery barrels in close proximity to frolicking nude Euros. You'll find heaving pits through the winter months when thick neoprene is required from head to toe. Julien Turpaud recently uploaded this clip of the Hossegor/Capbreton stretch, featuring Marc Lacomare, Patrick Beven, Joan Duru and Andy Crière.

Thanks Ben.. I liked the whole alternate deal...Very astute sound byte I thought.

Song Title is "Subterranean Formation" from said band's LP shown in credits.
Best part of best song by far + wasteland (next best) both have a mid-late 70's prog' feel.
Swede's main sound is heavily edited quirky 1984 dystopian Art of Noise vs Max Headroom
ThazL was spared the worst of it...Sound editor did a brilliant job believe me!
