Various Artists | From Brussels With Love

Les Disques du Crepuscule is proud to present a gatefold double vinyl edition of iconic compilation album From Brussels With Love, which was the very first release on the Crepuscule label 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 is by Jean-Francois Octave, with additional graphics by Benoit Hennebert, Marc Borgers and Claude Stassart.
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. This 2xLP edition (TWI 008) is pressed on coloured vinyl (record 1 is black, record 2 is white), and features all 21 tracks included on the original cassette, with the booklet pages printed on the inner gatefold. The front cover artwork uses the design of the 1983 Japanese vinyl edition.
There also are a cassette edition (TWI 007), a faithful reproduction of the 1980 original, and a deluxe 2xCD 'earbook' edition (TWI 007CD) presented as a 10-inch square hardback 64-pages book.
