Deux Filles | Silence & Wisdom / Double Happiness

LTM is pleased to present a deluxe digipak reissue of both albums by Deux Filles on remastered double CD and download.
Back in 1982 many were happy to believe that Deux Filles were tragic French orphans Claudine Coule and Gemini Forque. In reality the ambient/instrumental duo comprised Simon Fisher Turner, former child star/teen idol and future soundtrack composer, and songwriter/technician Colin Lloyd Tucker. They had left an early incarnation of The The in 1981 to pursue a different musical direction. Turner claims that the idea of Deux Filles came to him in a dream, and he and Tucker strictly maintained the fiction throughout the duo's career. Not only did they pose in drag for the album covers, the duo once even played live without the audience realizing that the girls on-stage were actually a pair of blokes from south London having a giggle. Deux Filles released two highly collectable albums: Silence & Wisdom (1982) and Double Happiness (1983). After that, the duo cast their frocks aside and released two ambient pop albums as Jeremy's Secret.
This remastered double disc set includes all tracks from both original albums, with the booklet featuring liner notes and archive Deux Filles images.
