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.
