d. stop: nouvelles du front

Founded in September 1981 in Orleans, and originally dedicated to a kind of "modern punk rock," D.Stop released a first 7'' the following year (to be reissued later on Desire with extra tracks). After their first 7", Sonny Brailleur (vocals) + Phil Lethon (guitar/bass) + Klod Lelook (organ, synths, drum-machines), inspired by French band Métal Urbain, stylistically transformed into a more "synth punk" kind of outfit and released their first mini-album Nouvelles du Front in September 1983. Only released in an edition of 500 copies on the small indie label Romance, the album now changes hands for $150. One year after, the band already ceased to exist -- or actually changed their name to Les Visiteurs du Soir -- to turn back to the old name in 1985 by releasing a limited MC. Despite the very few releases by this gifted act, D.Stop are considered to be one of the most interesting and under-rated cult acts in French cold wave. For fans of Métal Urbain, D.A.F., Screamers, Devo, etc. 300 copies on black vinyl. 350 gram sleeve with insert. Includes a download card.
