Umbrellas In the Sun

This just in -- I'll let you know my thoughts after viewing -- needless to say I am extremely excited!

Various | Umbrellas In The Sun - Crepuscule/Factory Benelux 1979-1987

Umbrellas In The Sun borrows its title from the 1982 video compilation of the same name released by Les Disques Du Crepuscule (TWI 099), and features selected clips from that project as well as clips from A Factory Complication (FACBN 7), A Factory Video (FACT 56) and A Factory Outing (FACT 71) plus previously unreleased material. Among the best known artists and tracks featured are Josef K, New Order, A Certain Ratio, Tuxedomoon, Cabaret Voltaire and Durutti Column. The New Order clip, a live track from Brussels May 1981, is the earliest concert material so far released by the band, and captures one of the first live performances of this electro classic.
Umbrellas in the Sun has a running time of two hours and fifteen minutes and features detailed sleevenotes. The audio soundtrack to all studio clips have been digitally remastered. The disc is Region 0 (multi-region), NTSC format. The jacket features original artwork by Crepuscule design genius Benoit Hennebert.
