Les Disques Du Crépuscule

Les Disques Du Crépuscule

Profile:
Label founded by Michel Duval & Annik Honoré with the famous illustrator Benoît Hennebert. Les Disques Du Crepuscule's official birth dates back to August 1980 when A Certain Ratio's Shack Up 7" was released, carrying a double label identity: Factory Benelux/Les Disques Du Crepuscule. In the following two decades Crepuscule has proved to be one of the finest record labels in Europe, with a high and lasting reputation worldwide. The Brussels based label issued close to 400 titles on vinyl, cassette and CD, and also tried its luck in book publishing, video production and fashion. The sheer musical variety ranging from pop to jazz and from classical to experimental music; the hype-free treatment and presentation of the artists and the close attention paid to graphic design; these have delivered Crepuscule a very special name among the independent record labels that were founded in the late 70s and early 80s.

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.
