Marquis de Sade

OK, gonna about wrap this up for tonight, I've sure gone beyond the duty call tonight, as I said in a previous post, I am all stressed out about a job I am trying to get.....anyway, when I am in a stressy kind of mood, I, well, go through my music collection and dig out stuff I haven't heard in 20 or 30 years, pop it on, and see if there would be any interest in a post.......and I think I might have hit the jackpot with this one, a good and more or less unknown album from the early 1980's that most people have not heard of, I highly recommend this one, for whatever that is worth.

This is the SECOND release from Marquis de Sade, "Rue De Siam", I do not have thier first, nor do I have either of the pair of EP's they released. All I have to go on is this one. From France, and released in 1981, guitarist Frank Darcel, keyboardist Christian Dargelos, and singer Phillipe Pascal combined with a number of other musicians to create these works, some have compared their work to that of Magazine, I can see that, if you need a reference point.

Very dark music, as the name would likely imply, and as a weird cover of the Velvet Underground's "White Light White Heat" would validate.......the sound was, as said before, dark, also tense, uncomfortable, and to the right ears, quite lovely and romantic, a pure period piece, a slab of forgotten early 80's post-punk/new-wave/new romantic (well, maybe not, but a touch maybe)......other than Magazine, which is not a perfect comparison by any means, I can't really think of a decent comparison I can give them to ANYONE else......

All I can say is it is quite lovely and quite creepy at the same time, listen to "Back to Cruelty", "Submarines and Iceberg", and especially, "Wanda's Loving Boy".......it's a chilling album, in a cool kind of way, really like to see a comment or two on this one as I always do when you good folks take a chance on my word for something nobody but me and the band members' families have ever heard of.

BTW, as I said, this is the only piece of music I have ever heard that they released......if ANYONE has their debut album, ("Dantzig Twist") or either of the two EP's they put out between albums ("Air Tight Cell" or " Rhytmiques" I would be thrilled to hear them as I actually used to listen to this one quite a bit and thought it was a pretty good one.......anyone? anyone out there got anymore of this very good yet understandably inaccessable music? You know what to do, if so!
