Jacques Denjean-Silver and Gold

Photobucket

WOW, is all I can say! This library album is quite massive. What we have here are dark April Orchestra style beats as well as down tempo synthesized tracks all combined on one rare piece of wax. I know nothing about this label other than they had very limited pressings and only released 2 LP's. Songs like "the cult", with a dark Latin chant and "roll dance" with 70's (or 80"s ?) dance floor feel, and even the demented voices on "agony", ensure nothing but quality.

how about a preview?

  3. The label is called "Silver & Gold". It was a tiny private label with only 2 releases.

  4. "I know nothing about this label other than they had very limited pressings and only released 2 LP's. "

    I am now dying to know, if this is one of the only 2 LP's, what's the other one?

    Oddly enough, according to Wikipedia, Jacques Denjean does have 3 movie/tv soundtracks in his discography. One of them is a Spanish film called 'Morbo' aka 'Morbidness' which certainly sounds in line with titles like 'The Cult' and 'Agony'. Wonder if they are connected?

    Hmm... after grooving to 'The Touch Touch', I am intrigued by this album and will eagerly await the link.

    Thanks in advance!

  6. This is one of those rarer than rocking horse shit deals, which dusty crate did you dig this delightful gem from!? As soon as I hear the words "private pressing" I go kinda weak at the knees!

    Thanks to Harvey Midnight for the Wiki info, the mystery over provenance deepens and the thought that it may be a soundtrack album to the 'Morbo' film makes sense....it definitely feels more like a soundtrack that a "library" album but having said that, the film came out in 1972 so the question is, does the music feel as early as that or more mid to late seventies?

    Another record that has no immediate spatio-temporal signature, one minute it sounds like 1970 and the next like 1978! It has a real Morricone feel to it without being simply a pale imitation of the man and reinforces its 'Spanish' feel (if it is indeed a soundtrack for a Spanish film). "The Cult" track is just a perfect slice of dark diskosmische and the 4/4 kick drum near the end has a real dark techno feel. The other track that really stands out is 'Agony' and would not sound out of place on This Mortal Coil's 1990 'Blood' album.

    Anyway, many thanks again for sharing this, its damned appreciated! Anyone want to take a bet this will surface on Finders Keepers next year!

    The question is, what's the other album released on this "Silver & Gold" mirco-label called?
