Les Joyaux's releases were once extremely sought-after and, in a time when the Internet was young and not so many people were in this kind of music, they were nothing short of legendary. Today, quite a lot of what Erik did put out has lost most of its charm, thanks also to unreasoning bootleggers. "Croix De Bois - Croix De Feu" is, despite everything, still a fascinating mini-album. The music is very simple, with its bombastic keyboards, few noises and drumming, as well as historical French speeches sampled here and there, but the atmosphere it conjures is strong, dramatic and effective. Being a 10" vinyl, it clocks a bit more than 30 minutes, and you don't risk to fall asleep, like with a few of the following releases (Philippe Henriot, anyone?). The packaging is, undoubtedly, the most beautiful ever created by Monsieur Les Joyaux.
