"The roots of the music that we call Trance Cocktail started on Moogs in Stockholm (The Cardigans and Komeda), in Muzak in London (Mike Flowers and Cound Indigo) , in stereo in Tokyo (Pizzicato 5 and Kahimi Karie), before becoming known as Loungecore in America (Combustible Edison) and Neo-Eurovision in Berlin (Stereo Total). Momus, who moved to Paris in 1994, placed an advertisement in the French capital's most adventurous magazine, Nova. 'Girl singer wanted for an album of songs in the style of 1970s Italian soft porn films', it read. The half-Thai, half-French Laila France, a 21 year-old student of the plastic arts, was the successful applicant. Over the next year Momus and Laila wrote an album together, meeting every Wednesday in Montmartre. Orgonon is the result, a record dedicated to the spirit of psychoanalyst Wilhelm Reich, who believed that orgasmic energy, correctly accumulated in little boxes, could save the world. The Italian soft porn themes are still audible, as is the presence of Kahimi Karie, Serge Gainsbourg, Klaus Nomi, Vince Clark, Visage and Francis Lai. But there are also exotic elements of Drum and Bass added in London by Pantunes, and a haunting remix by techno artist Scanner. Thank you for choosing Trance Cocktail Airlines. Please place your armrests down and your tables up and prepare for take-off!"
