Who played lead on Augustine ? Flamme or Japonais ? Because in Solola Bien US Studio, it's Japonais Maladi playing it with Werrason also mentioning his name (6.45 min). Or was the sebene of Augustine Japonais's creation with Flamme playing it in the album-version and adding his paritions, like he did on the generique of Solola Bien where the first part was Japonais's creation until the Chibida Bibiche-rap/animation.


1.50 min


I never saw Japonais playing Augustine in concerts it was always Flamme who was playing it until Japonais's departure.



Japonais on the rhytm-guitare and playing rhythm exactly how it was played on the cd-version.

Still don't understand why Flamme played the most sebenes on Solola Bien while Japonais was far and far better than him on that moment with everybody calling Flamme a faux solist despite the succes of the generique and the sebene of Cresois.

It is Flamme Kapaya who plays lead guitar on every sebene on Solola Bien, except Robert Basende. If you noticed, his guitar licks were much sharper than Flamme Kapaya whose guitar was often tuned to that of a rhythm guitarist.

Maybe Werrason figured that Kapaya was chosen early to begin phasing out Japonais, since he was much younger and thus easier to control as opposed to Japonais Maladi (like Ferre Gola) was affiliatedn with Wenge as early as Pentagone. Just my theory!

Back when Werrason used to sound good on record lol
