This little-known French group were among the first real, indigenous rock bands in France to take the more experimental path. I have only heard parts of their eponymous debut album (the only one available on CD at the time), but its vocal-oriented, melodically catchy music seemed to have most in common with the blues-based early music of Family and Jethro Tull, though perhaps with a more psychedelic and French melodic touch. Arrêtez Le Monde is rumoured to be more progressive, but that is only a rumour. All Ice is the same album with English lyrics and only slightly less rare than the dodo. Thus the band that is sometimes listed as All Ice is actually this very same Alice. They released no more albums and they never had anything to do with the Italian solo artist Alice. -- Kai Karmanheimo
