LTM is proud to announce the first complete CD release of the classic 1981 compilation album The Fruit of the
Original Sin, first released on chic Belgian indie label Les Disques Du Crepuscule.
Originally released as a deluxe double album package in November 1981, The Fruit of the Original Sin featured 24 exclusive tracks from the international avant-garde and new wave, as well as the celebrated Factory Records and Postcard rosters. Then, as now, the contributing artists include William S. Burroughs, The Durutti Column, Paul Haig,
Tuxedomoon, Wim Mertens, DNA, Richard Jobson, Marine, The French Impressionists and Peter Gordon. The programme also includes an extended interview with acclaimed French author Marguerite Duras.
The original double album now features 8 bonus tracks, including both sides of long-lost singles by Paul Haig (Soon/Summertime) and noted New York visual artist Lawrence Wiener (Deutsche Angst/Where It Came From), as well as a rare track (Matters Of Theory) by The Lost Jockey, the modernist ensemble featuring composer Andrew Poppy.
The 12 page facsimile booklet features original artwork by Benoit Hennebert and Jean-Frangois Octave, as well as archive images and detailed liner notes. The original cover art by Hennebert is widely recognised as one of his very best designs.
This new double CD edition has been digitally remastered from the original master tapes, and features 124 mins of material. Most of the tracks features here remain unavailable elsewhere. The CD follows on the success of our 2006 re-release of the 1980 Crepuscule compilation From Brussels With Love.
