• trisomie 21 Chapter IV (double LP, £24.50)

    label: Dark Entries

    For their fourth album the Lomprez brothers spent September and October of 1985 recording nine new compositions. In January 1986 ‘Chapter IV, Le Je-ne-sais quoi et le presque-rien’ was released by PIAS sub-label Scarface. The title came from a 1957 book by French philosopher and musicologist Vladimir Jankélévitch. The songs on the album, including the emblematic “The Last Song”, were captivating, original and without concession. This record further opened the door to new opportunities, and the band’s music spread further internationally. Sadly some of the songs had phase related problems and caused partial cancellation playing back monophonically, so the band remixed and re-recorded the songs and reissued them on CD only in 1987. We have added the nine remixes/re-recordings as bonus tracks here as a double LP. All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The LP is housed in a replica of the original jacket featuring artwork by Stephan Barbery from a Goya painting and includes a double sided insert with lyrics, notes and photos. “This record is dedicated to nobody” Tracks : The Last Song, There's No Trouble There, Memories, Pleasure, The Cave And The Light, Nightflight, Is Anybody Home?
