    Excellent Canterbury-inspired Belgian band, led by guitarist/flutist Daniel Schell, which featured the unique vocal talents of Pascale Son (Schell's wife). Each of the two recordings I have by Cos have their own sound. The first, Postaeolian Train Robbery is a personal favorite. The extensive liner notes included in the Musea CD reissue make it very plain that Cos were admirers of French progressive bands such as Zao and Magma, and their muscial influence is obvious on Postaeolian Train Robbery. The music on this CD is weird jazzy fusion comparable to the first couple of Zao albums (esp. Z=7L and Osiris), only Cos had a whimsical, goofy edge that Zao (and Magma) lacked. The Musea reissue also includes 4 tracks by Schell's previous group Classroom, which had a similar sound to Cos, only more straight-ahead jazzy and less interesting. The second album, Viva Bomma is more overtly influenced by Canterbury bands such as Caravan, Hatfield and the North, and Gilgamesh. Pascale Son's sweet vocals are again prominent and, at times, give the music an almost pop sort of sensibility. Aside from that, the keyboards sound like Dave Stewart minus the fuzz organ (I wish that dreadful 'string synthesizer' sound could somehow be eliminated!), the drummer sounds very much like Pip Pyle, and there's even a Hugh Hopper-styled fuzz bass feature on one cut. Very good, but also very derivative. Several members of Cos went on to other interesting projects: keyboardist Marc Hollander formed the excellent 'Aksak Maboul', and guitarist Daniel Schell formed an interesting band named Karo (just like the corn syrup) which recorded two albums for Crammed Discs in the late 1980s. -- Dave Wayne
