1. Product Details

LP version. 180 gram ruby vinyl. Includes CD. The debut album release from LEpee the band of Emmanuelle Seigner Ultra Orange & Emmanuelle Anton Newcombe The Brian Jonestown Massacre Lionel and Marie Liminana The Limianas. It is very rarely that a musical project lives up to the billing of being a supergroup. However the exception to this rule comes in the shape of LEpee. A stellar combination of the talents of The Brian Jonestown Massacres Anton Newcombe cinematic femme fatale Emmanuelle Seigner and ice-cool pop provocateurs The Limianas LEpee transcend artistic and traditional borders. Far from being defeated by a world seemingly regressing into turmoil LEpees strength comes from a long history of challenging the status quo - they all share a fierce intelligence and an outsider aesthetic which over the decades has been sharpened to a razors edge. Fitting then that their name translates as The Sword. This pent-up creative energy has been channeled into their extraordinary debut album Diabolique. Named in tribute to Mario Bavas 1968 cult classic Danger: Diabolik its a musical masterclass where elements of garage ye-ye sleaze rock cult soundtracks sci-fi spaghetti westerns and girl-group pop noir are combined with the cut-and-thrust zeal of a band bursting with ideas and energy. All delivered by Emmanuelle in a sultry Gallic drawl which will send a frisson of recognition through anyone familiar with her iconic roles in among many others Frantic 1988 Venus In Fur 2013 and Bitter Moon 1992 all directed by her husband Roman Polanski. Ive loved rock music since I was a kid she says namechecking Lou Reed The Velvet Underground and The Stooges as key influences. Having asked close friend Bertrand Belin to provide lyrics for three further tracks Grande On Dansait Avec Elle and Lou the trio set to work at The Limianas studio in Cabestany Southern France in November 2017. Satisfied with the results the trio flew to Berlin to hook up with Anton and Andrea Wright at his Cobra Studio in Berlin. Utilizing a treasure trove of vintage equipment Anton set to work re-recording the drums with Marie and adding - and deleting - tracks so that the shifting layers of sound suited the mood of each individual track.
