... the avant-pop opus from 1980-83 by Véronique Vincent & Aksak Maboul



Written & recorded by Véronique Vincent (Honeymoon Killers vocalist) and Marc Hollander (Aksak Maboul & Crammed Discs founder), in collaboration with Vincent Kenis (Aksak Maboul/Congotronics), this album was announced in Crammed's early catalogues, but was never completed. It has now been assembled (and partly retrieved from demos, rough mixes and cassette tapes), and will come out in October 2014, with a slight delay of 30 years.
 
The single also comprises a new remix by great electronic music duet Easy & C.O.U. (who are stalwarts of the Nordic skweee scene).
