Sloche was a Québécois symphonic-rock band that released the album J’un Oeil on RCA Victor in 1975, followed by the sophomoric Stadaconé on the label in 1976.

Members: Pierre Bouchard (keyboards), Jacques Collin (bass), Fernand Paré (drums), Marcel Périgny (guitar), Réjean Yacola (piano, vocals), Martin Murray (organ, synthesizer, saxophone, vocals), Caroll Bérard (guitar, vocals), Pierre Hébert (bass, vocals), Gilles Chiasson (drums), André Roberge (drums), Gilles Ouellet (percussion)


Sloche formed in 1971 with a revolving lineup that included guitarist Marcel Périgny, a member of unrecorded psych rockers South Gate 24, a precursor to W.D. Fisher. They embraced symphonic- and jazz-rock with the arrival of keyboardist Réjean Yacola, a graduate of the Conservatoire de musique du Québec à Québec.

Around Yacola, Sloche coalesced as a quintet with guitarist Caroll Bérard, bassist Pierre Hébert, drummer Gilles Chiasson, and saxist–keyboardist Martin Murray. In early 1975, they linked with the French-Canadian branch of RCA Victor.
