THIBAULT, LAURENT - Mais on ne peut pas rêver tout le temps
2017 reissue of the 1978 release, regarded as a classic of European prog, remastered by the artist. Thibault was a founding member of Magma and founder of the Theleme label in the early 70s.
"This reissue under the label Theleme (French label, owned by ex-Magmas bassist and musical brain�Thibault. The label released some of the most obscure psychedelic and prog rock records during the 70s), which is reborn for the occasion, the rare mythical album "But we can not dream all the time", ranked by some as the best album of progressive rock European, is particularly neat and offers many exclusives.
Thus, the new and beautiful clutch opens, unlike the old one that was simple. The painting "The Charmeuse de Serpent" by Douanier Rousseau is now presented in full, with the signature of the painter.
The painting "The War or the Ride of Discord", which inspired the eponymous title that concludes the album is found in the internal double page. We discover a long text of the composer who explains the genesis of the project.
On the back cover, among international press excerpts: Japan, USA, GB, Europe ..., a particular English critic: "Laurent THIBAULT is a musical painter, and his paintings are exquisite, full of finesse and nuances. His album is certainly one of the most beautiful records, the most impressionist and evocative, and also tinged with a strong influence Zeuhl."
The term Zeuhl includes music styles related to the MAGMA group, one of the most innovative groups on the planet. Moreover, the groups famous logo (originally designed by Laurent THIBAULTs sister) appears in the background, just as one reads, engraved in the wax on the Face A of the vinyl, the motto of MAGMA: "For life, to death and forever ...". The central label reproduces an extract from The Serpent Charmeuse. The sound has been remastered by Laurent Thibault in his new studio Le CH�TEAU in Angers." - Theleme.
After nearly a decade of false starts, multiple game plans veering off the rails, and a handful of shattered hopes and/or dreams, the odyssey is finally complete—the new Fusetron site is here.
This is the first phase of a multipart rollout that will span the next few months: the currently browsable stock includes miscellaneous new releases from the past 8+ months (we have a lot of catching up to do), plus approximately a third of our backstock. Note that we’ve reduced/slashed prices on many titles and will continue to do so in order to make room for new stock. We’ll also be expanding / tweaking / improving / debugging the site itself (for example, we still have work to do on the automated international postage system, not to mention the inevitable inventory discrepancies that come with transferring an ancient and massive database to a new system).
Over the next few months, as we take inventory, clean house, and delve into our storage, we will be uploading thousands of additional items, gradually, on a near-daily basis. This will include the majority of the LPs, as well as many titles, in all formats, once thought long-gone. Many currently “sold out” items are likely to resurface.
Finally, once our general backstock is up (probably in the next two or three months) we’ll begin making our extensive stockpile of rarities available online for the first time: tons of random out-of-print titles, "deadstock," warehouse finds, secondhand collectibles, etc., accumulated over the past few decades.
Frequent/returning customers will be getting early access to these items. Details to follow on how this will work (a priority mailing list? a 'frequent flyer'-like program?), but it will not be based on dollars spent. We want to reward those who consistently support us, especially in the discogs marketplace era (to those who show up trying to poach five copies of a one-off rarity, and nothing else, ever… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ).
So—we suggest you take some time to dig through the site—even we’ve been surprised by what’s been turning up, and there’s much more to come.
