Hi,

As you can see, i'm new here, i live in France and in my country there is a great unkown band called "Les Joyaux De La Princesse" who made a very interesting album with another american band called Blood Axis. This album is called "Absinthe, La Folie Verte". As you can imagine, the theme of this album is absinthe. Great music with some great recited poems.

What kind of music? Ambiant, industrial... Very special but great for gloomy persons... I really like it, it's one of my favourite albums.

A box is proposed with two vinyls, a book (in French) about absinthe, a spoon, some cards...

You know this album?

It is one of the weirdest albums I've listened to in a long time. It's quite allright for background music when drinking, though.

I'd like to hear it. I can never get enough ambient or industrial music. Do you know of a place where you can order the album online?

In this album we can listen to recited poems of Marie Corelli, Charles Cros, Ernest Dowson...

QUOTE
Marie Corelli, I am the green fairy

I am the green Fairy
My robe is the color of despair
I have nothing in common with the fairies of the past
What I need is blood, red and hot,
The palpitating flesh of my victims
Alone, I will kill France, the present is dead,
Vive the future...
But me, I kill the future and in family I destroy
The love of country, courage, honor,
I am the purveyor of hell, penitentiaries, hospitals.
Who am I finally?
I am the instigator of crime
I am ruin and sorrow
I am shame
I am dishonor
I am death
I am Absinthe

Charles Cros, With Flowers and With Women

With Flowers, and with Women,
With Absinthe, and with this Fire,
We can divert ourselves a while,
Act out our part in some drama.

Absinthe, on a winter evening,
Lights up in green the sooty soul;
And Flowers, on the beloved,
Grow fragrant before the clear Fire.

Later, kisses lose their charm
Having lasted several seasons;
And after mutual betrayals
We part one day without a tear.

We burn letters and bouquets.
And fire takes our bower;
And if sad life is salvaged
Still there is Absinthe and its hiccups.

The portraits are eaten by flames.
Shrivelled fingers tremble.
We die from sleeping long
With Flowers, and with Women.

Yeah, great stuff! I have both CD and vinyl version of it! The record label Athanor ( http://arsregia.free.fr/# ) has both CD and vinyl in stock, I think. Also check out track "Absinthe" on Blood Axis´ "The Gospel of Inhumanity" CD ( if you can find it).

If I ever turn on that show, and actually "see" that, it will be time for me to put away the absinthe, forever! wacko.gif

It's a great album too. This music is certainly weird for persons who don't listen to ambient or industrial but finally, it can be very interesting...

I have got the cd and the box.

It is great. Blood Axis is great, but that Michael Moynihan is a bit of a strange and controversial person...
