Please press on vinyl please please love this so much
The name of the album is of course a play on words. They use the old famous title from the literature, but they actually think of Roland machines. ;)
Still amazing 15 years later. Off course the title of the album is linked to the "middle age" spirit, especially from France and brittany. But, if you read the credits, they thank TR,JV and Jupiter, which are Old Roland Machines. I remember a documentary about electronic music with them on french television and how much they loved these machines from Roland.
The "Chanson de Roland" has nothing to do with the company Roland!!

The title of the CD is inspired from the oldest major work known in the French literature.

The text originates from a poem from a Norman poet. The "Chanson de Roland" deals with the historical Battle of Roncesvalles (Roncevaux) in 778. Though the encounter was actually an insignificant skirmish against the Basques, the poem transforms Roncesvalles into a battle against Saracens and magnifies it to the heroic stature of Thermopylae.

Check Wikipedia for more details.

These guys must be quite cultured, since "La Chanson de Roland" is the most popular play from the middle age. It's interesting how they use the title of that famous play in the modern age, since "chanson" is "song" in french. So when you translate it, it's "Roland's Song". Did they meant Roland as in the company? Who know? :)
