"Superb compilation of French cold-wave/goth legend Norma Loy starting with their very first recorded track from '81 to unreleased demos/rehearsals/live to unreleased treasures. In 1981, Usher and Chelsea formed Norma Loy. The band launched its first EP, the first one of its cold-wave-kind in France. Norma Loy searched for their identity and multiplied there experiences on the side, leading to the creation in 1984 of their own label, CPM, which produced a second EP distributed by New Rose: Psychic Altercation whose 'psychoanalytic rock' gave the setting for later productions. CPM developed its own philosophy and centralized the different activities of the group (musical and non musical ones: (photo)graphic ones, literature, video making, dance etc...) and controls the entire artistic production (recordings, LP covers, song books...). A particular emphasis was drawn on the concerts mixing music and slide projections. Over the past 25 years, many excellent records have been released such as Rewind/T.Vision (86), Sacrifice (88) and the last part of the trilogy called Rebearth." DVD: Live at Atheneum, 06/12/87.
