"Atomic Roses"appeared on cassette back in 1982 and remains one of the most beautifully packaged releases in LPDs' long history. The artwork was created by members of the wonderful (and still active) French band Deficit Des Annees Anterieurs who were responsible for their own Illusion Productions label. Contact was made by mail , exotic packages were exchanged and when we were invited to submit a release for this label of love, it felt like a dozen Christmases had arrived at the same moment!
As for the music, much will be familiar through collections like "Chemical Playschool 1 & 2" and "The Legendary Pink Box" , but there is a thread that runs through this original concept album, and it still sounds strong even after 36 years....EK
Jean Jacques Birge is an artist with a history so rich with good music, it's possible to forget that there's life outside this submarine. Hours of deep listening await the curious listener. Legendary Pink Dots
