Défense de was the first album of Jean-Jacques Birgé and Francis Gorgé, before founding Un Drame Musical Instantane with Bernard Vitet in 1976. They had started to play together while at high school, and on their debut LP they were joined by percussionist Shiroc (who also played in Speed Limit). The DVD will include the experimental movie La Nuit Du Phoque made by Jean-Jacques Birge and Bernard Mollerat in 1974. The movie is a mix between avant-garde French movie and experimental ambience which takes the viewer back in time to 1974.

Jean-Jacques Birgé and Francis Gorgé began their musical collaboration in 1970, and produced the first rock concert of their high school, at Lycée Claude Bernard in Paris. Défense de was their first album before founding Un Drame Musical Instantané in 1976, with Bernard Vitet. Two of the bonus tracks were intended to be index 2 and 4 on the album, but Birgé and Gorgé met Shiroc a few weeks later and these two tracks were replaced and completely forgotten until the MIO reissue. The four initial pieces were recorded in Sebastien Bernard’s family apartment
