Title: Un Jour Comme Tant Dautres
Format: CD
Label: Beta-Lactam Ring
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Dieu has smiled upon us, for a previously shelved early album (1975) by ILITCH finally has its jour in the soleil. THIERRY MULLERs strange musical arc is further enriched and confounded by this exploratory cosmic release. A brilliant mix of Krauty space groans and experimentalism (see also Conrad Schnitzler and Ash Ra Temple, etc) and the progressive electronics of Igor Wakhevitch. There is some psych in the folds, and the album is tripped-out all over. Full of small sounds underneath mystical and shimmering beds of loping electronic waves. It sounds like it was made three galaxies over (isnt that where France is?). Six tracks of deep galactics (or is it a journey through another planets Hell?). One persons Enfer is anothers Ciel. Limited edition of 300 copies." - Beta-Lactam Ring.

Title: Hors Temps/Out of Time
Format: CD
Label: Fractal
Country: FRANCE
Price: $19.00
"Thierry Muller -- Ilitchs head -- is the multi-instrumentalist dark experimental French composer who started his musical career with the band Arcane as an underground electronics improvisations outfit around the years 1974. Albums Periodkmintrouble 1978 & 10 suicides 1980 were Ilitch first two works followed by the Ruth pop synth project Polaroid roman photo in 1985. All three are now reissued on CD with many unreleased bonus material by Fractal Records. Well received by many critics today, Ilitch took a solid place in the French underground scene from that area and was a serious source of influence on several groups/artists such as The Legendary Pink Dots for instance. After 24 years, the third and brand new Ilitch album is now released, titled ironically Hors Temps / Out of time and was composed during the last five years. More than a gap, its a generation of sounds in between... and Thierry Muller is at the rendez-vous : a full album in 9 electropopsonics excursions through the time with a pleiade of colored sounds (vocals, guitar, vocals, drums, percussions, farfisa, rhythmic programms, treated piano etc...). >From the mellow pop to the angry waves, Hors Temps / Out of time is a blink at the early hours and a poetic reflexion and vision on life. With the participation of the great musician poet Philippe Doray. Subtle pop power for adult entertainment. Rendez-vous Hors Temps." - Fractal

Thierry Muller is a French guitarist, who has made three LPs : Periodikmindtrouble (1978), 10 Suicides (1980), Polaroïd/Roman/Photo (1985). The music is electronic, experimental, harsh, repetitive, personal and can be compare with Brian Eno, Robert Fripp, Cluster, Conrad Schnitzler, Kraftwerk, Terry Riley, Philip Glass, Heldon, Lard Free. Unfortunately unrecognized in France (even not mention in the booklet introduction of the 3CD Box set French compilation 30 Years Of Musical Insurrection In France 1968-1998 ...!), Ilitch did not fall in the ear of a deaf person, because it is not by accident if Thierry Muller appears on the famous list by Steven Stapleton/Nurse With Wound on Chance meeting... (1979)!" - Fractal

Title: 10 Suicides
Format: LP
Label: Superior Viaduct
Country: USA
Price: $26.00
"In 1980, Ilitch mastermind Thierry Müller released his second LP, 10 Suicides, on the French imprint S.C.O.P.A. Unlike his debut Periodikmindtrouble (also available from Superior Viaduct), which featured intricately layered instrumentals, 10 Suicides explores a more art-damaged pop sensibility. While distorted guitars and atmospheric synth workouts remain a part of Müllers signature sound, several songs credit the mysterious Ruth Ellyeri, who was not an actual person, but rather Müllers female alter-ego. Opening track “Elle Voulait Que Je Sois Drôle” shows Ilitchs new direction with overloaded vocoders, driving Moog basslines and soft, Eno-like melodic flourishes. The androgynous vocals on “Waiting For Mabelle (Je Ne Viendrais Pas)” resemble an upbeat Gregorian chant bent through a 20th Century lens. 10 Suicides is a staggeringly personal album that still sounds years ahead of its time. This first-time vinyl reissue comes with 16-page booklet and is recommended for fans of Ghédalia Tazartès, Chris & Cosey and Monoton." - Superior Viaduct.

Title: Periodikmindtrouble
Format: LP
Label: Superior Viaduct
Country: USA
Price: $26.00
"In the mid-1970s, Parisian composer and multi-instrumentalist Thierry Müller began operating primarily under the Ilitch moniker. Juxtaposing dark, electronic soundscapes and solo guitar improvisations, Ilitch created some of the most enduring music of the era. It comes as no surprise that Nurse With Wound included Müller on their famed list of influential avant-garde artists. Originally released on Oxygene Records in 1978, Ilitchs debut Periodikmindtrouble was a shot across the bow for the French underground scene. Comprised of instrumental four-track recordings made in Müllers dorm room, the album features gritty tape loops, analog synth swells and angst-ridden guitars. “Sequence 4” fills the stereo field with eerie harmonium and kosmische textures, while the side-long title track is a bona fide organ soliloquy, exploring both abrasive and ambient sonorities. “Derriere La Fenetre (Behind the Window)” dives deeper into acoustic patterns to reveal the expressive quality of Müllers singular style. Periodikmindtrouble lays the groundwork for an impressive body of work that has grown only more unsettling over the past three decades. This first-time vinyl reissue comes packaged in a gatefold jacket and is recommended for fans of Cluster, Fripp / Eno and Heldon." - Superior Viaduct.
