Various Artists | From Brussels With Love

Les Disques du Crepuscule is proud to present a deluxe 2xCD hardback earbook edition of iconic compilation From Brussels With Love. Bearing the catalogue number TWI 007, it was the very first release on Crepuscule back in November 1980, and is now celebrating its 40th anniversary.
Originally released as a deluxe cassette/booklet package in a PVC wallet, From Brussels With Love featured 21 exclusive tracks from the international avant-garde and new wave, as well as contributions from the celebrated Factory Records roster. Then, as now, the featured artists include A Certain Ratio, Gavin Bryars, Harold Budd, Thomas Dolby, Dome, The Durutti Column, John Foxx, Martin Hannett, Richard Jobson, The Names, Bill Nelson, Kevin Hewick + New Order, Michael Nyman and Der Plan.
Running for 78 minutes, the cosmopolitan 'cassette journal' was curated by Michel Duval, Annik Honore and Wim Mertens, and also includes extended interviews with Brian Eno and legendary French film actress Jeanne Moreau. The cover art by Jean-Francois Octave, with additional graphics by Benoit Hennebert, Marc Borgers and Claude Stassart in the booklet.
From Brussels With Love quickly sold 6000 copies around Europe, earning rapturous reviews in the UK music press. "This is a reminder without really trying, without being obvious that pop is modern poetry. Is the sharpest, shiniest collection of experiences. Is always something new" (Paul Morley, NME). More recently, Dan Fox of art magazine Frieze described TWI 007 as "a masterpiece of distinctly northern European post-punk eclecticism."
To mark the 40th anniversary of From Brussels With Love, Crepuscule will issue 3 remastered editions. The most ambitious of these is this deluxe 2xCD earbook edition (TWI 007 CD) presented as a 10-inch square hardback book, with two full length audio CDs and a 60 page book including rare images, posters, sleeve designs and period ephemera, plus a detailed history of the Crepuscule label between 1979 and 1984, with contributions from Duval, Honore, Mertens, Octave, Hennebert and photographer Philippe Carly.
CD1 includes all 21 tracks from the original cassette. CD2 includes tracks omitted from TWI 007 for reasons of space, as well as related Crepuscule tracks by Michael Nyman, Bill Nelson, John Foxx, Richard Jobson, Durutti Column, Repetition and The Names, and contemporary songs by other Belgian artists including Digital Dance, Polyphonic Size, Aksak Maboul and Marine.
There also are a cassette edition (TWI 007), a faithful reproduction of the 1980 original, and a gatefold double vinyl edition (TWI 008).
DUE OUT: NOVEMBER 6 2020.
