Ghosts of Christmas Past / TWI 158 CD 
descriptive image text here

Les Disques du Crepuscule presents an expanded edition of classic festive album Ghosts of Christmas Past, featuring favourites from the original 1981 and 1982 editions now joined by newer tracks by Crepuscule artists.

Sometimes witty, sometimes melancholic, the original version of Ghosts of Christmas Past in November 1981 featured exclusive contributions from luminaries such as Tuxedomoon, The Durutti Column, Paul Haig, Michael Nyman, Aztec Camera, Thick Pigeon and The Names. Subsequent editions in 1982 and 1986 added songs by Antena, Mikado, The French Impressionists, Pale Fountains and Winston Tong.

For this new double CD version in 2015 Crepuscule have now added more chantons noel by Blaine L. Reininger, Section 25, The Wake, Marsheaux, Deux Filles, Stanton Miranda, Virna Lindt, B Music and Ultramarine.

“Crepuscule's Christmas cracker is here to rescue the festive season from the fogies and bores"(Melody Maker); "Aztec Camera's Hot Club of Christ is a busy, Django-esque run through a few well-known Christmas ditties, Michael Nyman's Cream or Christians is a silly but loveable fragmented organ collage in a typical English eccentric tradition, Tuxedomoon are in playful Residential mood” (NME)

Cover art by Jean-Francois Octave. The remastered 2xCD is sleeved in a deluxe 6 panel digipack.

LUDUS / Nue au Soleil / TWI 340 CD 
Ludus

Nue Au Soleil (Completement) is a 2xCD anthology by post-punk pioneers Ludus, featuring vocalist Linder Sterling and guitarist Ian Devine.

Formed in Manchester in 1978, Ludus signed with Buzzcocks’ label New Hormones for a string of bold singles (Mother’s Hour, My Cherry Is In Sherry) and fearless albums (The Seduction, Danger Came Smiling), before a shift towards subversive pop for Crepuscule in 1982. ‘People who know real genius will love this record,’ wrote early fan Morrissey. ‘Ludus are sound psychology for the modern clientele.’

Disc 1 of this remastered collection includes key singles, EPs and album tracks, as well as I Don’t Want To Go, a previously unreleased demo from October 1978 featuring original guitarist Arthur Kadmon. The disc closes with Recognition, a more recent collaboration between Linder and Ian recorded in 2001.

Disc 2 features a unique John Peel session from August 1982, consisting four songs not studio recorded by Ludus elsewhere. The remainder of the disc is a professionally recorded live set taped on 5 November 1982 at the Hacienda club in Manchester, at which Linder modelled the infamous ‘meat dress’ later revisited by Lady Gaga.

Cover art by Benoit Hennebert. 6 panel digipack plus 12 page booklet featuring archive images and detailed liner notes.
