Esquisses


I was intrigued by this record because Steven Brown of Tuxedomoon plays alto sax on 3 tracks. I managed to buy a copy and I was really surprized. People who like Tuxedomoon will probably like this one too although it has a more melancholical feel.
Mike Shelter and SPY were the main members of this band. I even don't know from where they were but the record was released on a Belgian label that also released records of La Muerte, Nightfall In Camp, Snowy Red and the Scientists.
Any more info on Esquisses more than welcome.

I own the vinyl since 1985. the blaine reininger like melancholic touch is obvious for me.

thank you for sharing this record - some tuxedomoon lovers will be glad to fill up their collection.

Hey, at least someone who knows that record! I think it's not that easy to find nowadays. Do you know where the band was from? Can't figure it out on the sleeve.

A terrific low-key charmer here. Also for 4AD fans.

THX for sharing this! I adore Tuxedomoon...and was surprised to hear Dutch on the background of song 'first things first'; I had to listen a few times to be sure, but they are speaking clearly a dutch dialect. The recording must have taken place somewhere in the Flanders...
THX again.
