BENE GESSERIT-MUSIC FOR THE FUN OF IT, LP, 2005 (RECORDED: 1981-1985), BELGIUM




As requested and following my post of their "Fashion Is A Dirty Word" LP, here's a semi-recent archival release (which a little birdie tells me that the last available copies of can be found Here
) of material by these Belgian masters of ingenious minimal synth weirdity, the majority of which was originally published on various cassette releases and compilations and all of it suffused with an idiosyncratic musical depth that really distinguishes them from many of their minimal synth peers, something that loopy chanteuse Benedict G.'s inimitable vocal gambits (alternately erotic, petulant and nuttily nattering) really helps cement.

What a great album! Something about the chanting women in "Sailor's Song" absolutely sent shivers down my spine. Like a scene from some great movie that manages to be rivetting while simultaneously being totally incomprensible. "Idiosyncratic" is the word, but you already used that. Thanks for expanding my horizon a bit more.

Reminds me of Gang Gang Dance... amazing, 20 years prior...
Thanks for the great blog.

wow, really ear-opening! Totally agree with the Gang-Gang Dance comparison in another comment. Thanks. Can't seem to download their other album, is it one of those requiring re-up?
