For the first time ever, the Complot Bronswick 1984 debut album is reissued on vinyl. Mixing heavy post-punk and cold wave sounds, Maiakowski was written in 1983 as a tribute to the Russian poet of the early 20th century. Along with Norma Loy, Clair Obscur, and End Of Data, Complot Bronswick was one of the best bands of the very fertile French cold wave scene. This reissue is housed in a brand-new sleeve designed by the band's own personal long-time graphic designer, Maurice Chesneau. Arriving in 1981 on the Rennes scene, Complot Bronswick have never been short of good ideas: alternating music, video and performance, haunted by the shores of dreams and Russian imagery from the '20s, the group created captivating atmospheres. Complot Bronswick changed with a deliberate desire to shatter an image. Even the notion of them being an elitist band is a misinterpretation for such an open group. In fact, the role of Complot Bronswick was not to create a rigid world but to open up and accept the confrontation of different worlds, generating new emotions. The human structure of the group fluctuated and there could be anything from two to ten people onstage at any one time. The only real constant was the poetry and emotion given out at each concert, a certain idea of freedom. Limited edition of 300 copies. Pressed on clear vinyl. 350g sleeve printed on reversed cardboard. Includes a download card.
