Originally recorded between 1985 and 1986.
Completely re-mastered at Big Sound Studios 2006.
This is a rare re-issue in Jewel-Box with the first cover design with the 2 DIJ symbols.
After the legendary "Nada!" this is most probably the more beloved DIJ album.
Very elegant and pure chansonnier songs with their usual dark touch.
Featuring the sampled voice of Yukyo Mishima on one track and vocals by David Tibet (Current 93) on a couple of other tracks.
A monuiumental sonic fresco.
