2012 release. Rising out of the smoky Parisian Mai '68 shrapnel and claiming his stake as the first French vampire movie director, the inimitable father of European Horrortica, Jean Rollin (1938-2010) has smudged the painted face of Surrealist cinema for over five decades. Dragging his roots from beneath the Lettrist/Situationist movements, avant-garde theater, Belgian fine art groups and entwining them around the minds of sexual revolutionaries, the European comic book cognoscenti, the Parisian free-jazz and rock scene, Rollin stopped at nothing to bring his macabre fantasies of zygotic vampirism and backward blood cults to Gallic cinematheques and beyond. Celebrating the immortal legacy of the late director, Finders Keepers Records have compiled a detailed and comprehensive music cabinet of some of the finest musical moments from his initial directorial decade that provided a much-needed platform for the freak rock and free-jazz that mirrored the distorted erotic visions in his own mind's eye. Imagine Gong-gone-wrong meeting the Art Ensembles Of Châteauroux. Fantasy pop groups mutate and thrive within. Featuring early recordings from mod rockers Unity, free-jazz legends Barney Wilen, François Tusque and Jean-François Jenny-Clark and musical co-conspirators to Walerian Borowczyk and Fernando Arrabal, this collection unites a wide range of previously unreleased material with some of Finders Keepers' most collectable Rollinade vinyl moments for the first collection of this kind featuring music over 40 years old.
