Recorded on multitrack and remixed at the Edge Of The World, not far from the prison where Jean Genet conceived the idea of ”Querelle de Brest’, this recording, featuring John Murphy on drums, captures the return of Death In June to a French stage after 6 years of absence.
After a first edition on LP released in 2013 (and a reissue in 2017), this live recording was remixed again and released on CD+7″ with a new improved sound and an emphasis on John Murphy‘s stunning drumming.
First edition :
