Piscine et Charles \ Quart de Tour, Mon Amour [TWI 500 CD]

Les Disques du Crépuscule present a remastered vinyl edition of Quart de Tour, Mon Amour, the mysterious debut album by enigmatic Belgian duo Piscine et Charles, originally released by LDDC sub-label Another Side in 1984. The pressing is strictly limited to 500 copies only, in dark green vinyl.

A duo comprising Dominique Outers and Luc Raemdonck, Piscine et Charles taped their debut album at Daylight Studio with engineer Didier de Roos (Univers Zero, Tideline), along with several guest musicians and classical singer Lucie Grauman. A concept album of sorts, Quart de Tour, Mon Amour (which translates as Quarter Turn, My Love) combines literary lyrics with music described as a "neat fusion of coldwave, electronics and lounge-jazz, predating acid-jazz by about five years and conjuring impressive atmospheres."

Despite failing to reach a wide audience at the time, Quart de Tour, Mon Amour has since become a sought-after collector's item, with the title track recently appearing on acclaimed anthology set Uneven Paths: Deviant Pop From Europe on Dutch label Music From Memory. "A very unique sound, Piscine et Charles explore a poetic, romantic and enigmatic musical realm where synth-pop meets jazz and spoken word."

This newly remastered 2022 edition retains the original cover art, as well as adding text and previously unseen images from the Piscine et Charles archive, plus a digital copy (MP3 or FLAC).
