Illustrator John Coulthart's journal feuilleton and its weekend links selection is one of my favourite online treasure troves.
Last week did not disappoint with this bandcamp selection of Zeuhl bands, divided into 3 parts:
Old School Zeuhl, Zeuhl Goes Global, and New School Zeuhl. "There is No Prog, Only Zeuhl: A Guide to One of Rock’s Most Imaginative Subgenres" can be accessed here.
More info on this particular brand of music invented by French Avant-Garde pioneers Magma available on Prog Archives, which also includes a long list of bands in that vein and a good definition of what separates Zeuhl from prog rock:
Zeuhl is an adjective in Kobaïan, the language written by Christian Vander, drummer and founder of the French band Magma.
While far from being an expert on the genre, here's one of my favourite albums which don't appear on the bandcamp list by EIDER STELLAIRE. This is from their 1981 debut album.
