Crépuscule maintained close links with Factory in Manchester, but also operated (often shortlived) subsidiary labels in the UK (Operation Twilight and Operation Afterglow), the US (Crepuscule America), France (Crépuscule Section Française) and Japan (Crépuscule Au Japon).
1984 even saw the opening of "Interferences", a 'brasserie cosmopolite' cum performance space on Rue de la Tete d'Or, just off the Grand Place.
In the 2000s the label briefly relocated to Paris, concentrating on soundtracks and the French domestic market.
Michel Duval continued to run Crépuscule in various forms and locations until 2006.
2013 sees the return of Les Disques du Crépuscule, now curated by James Nice and operating out of the UK.
Former Label Code: LC 7565
A note on CD issues and how to identify a first edition or a reissue: Crepuscule have had their CDs manufactured at Dureco from January 1988 until November 1989, after which they used DADC in Austria for about 10 years. Dureco editions never carried a barcode.
