In 2004 I rescued the RUTH reissue from a corner dust pile at my former office. It's a crime it's OOP.

"Ruth was the brainchild of Thierry Müller, a photographer and graphic artist from Paris who started to record music in the early 70s using guitars, keyboards, electronics and tape loops. At first he worked solo, but in the mid 70s he began to invite other musicians. In the late 70s he began to work on a project called Ruth, this short-lived band released the lone album Polaroïd/Roman/Photo in 1985... "Mots" is probably the most frivolous track on the album. Repetitive, flickering synth tunes, a steady beat and a trumpet form the basis."

Ruth was the brainchild of Thierry Müller, a photographer and graphic artist from Paris who started to record music in the early 70s using guitars, keyboards, electronics and tape loops. At first he worked solo, but in the mid 70s he began to invite other musicians. A band called Ilitch was formed, playing abstract music that was completely instrumental and with a heavy use of electronics. Thierry drew his inspiration from bands and artists like Can, Brian Eno, Stockhausen, Pere Ubu, Neu, Velvet Underground and Kraftwerk. In the late 70s he began to work on a project called Ruth, this short-lived band released the lone album Polaroïd/Roman/Photo in 1985. "Mots" is probably the most frivolous track on the album. Repetitive, flickering synth tunes, a steady beat and a trumpet form the basis. Polaroïd/Roman/Photo is no catchy synth-pop nor quirky post-punk or slick new wave although it encorporates elements of all these styles.
