After the legendary French Ethno-industrial group Vox Populi! faded into obscurity in the early 1990s, members Arash Khalatbari, Ariel Kyrou, Axel Kyrou, Chester Harlan, Mithra, Pierre Jolivet and Francis Manne all embarked on new artistic adventures in their own way. Some, like bassist Francis Lafont aka fr6 Manne, aka Kosa Nostra, aka Kosa and Friends, left Paris to make a profound change in his life. He settled in Lyon and traded his job as a graphic artist and musician for that of a landscape designer. From his pure artistic universe, he has never stopped making music. Alone or with others, he follows his sound inspirations, multidisciplinary, already present on the label Vox Man records, founded in 1982 with Axel Kyrou. Together, as early as 1984, they started publishing the famous "Audiologie" compilations, an audio fanzine presenting a contemporary point of view on the experimental, noisy and avant-garde electronic music scene of the time. In particular, the three "Alterntative Funk" compilations that have become collector's items for fans of weird and ambitious electronic music.
