* 2021 Stock * It's 1975 in Paris. Two young guys in their bed-sit (one of whom is French music maven/famous producer Jay Alansky) are dreaming of counter-culture, and their internal versions of California and New York. The result is this album, a child begotten of Marc Bolan, Baudelaire, and Lautreamont. It's a fascinating record, engaging as it is scare- a look into a parallel pop universe. Somehow, the duo got their record released on Monde Melody's one-off "Silk" imprint. And what twisted songs (in English) they managed to squeeze into a fifty-minute slab on vinyl! The music drips with deep nostalgia for the decadent "beautiful people" who lived and breathed and then found a home in the songs of Lou Reed and Leonard Cohen, pervaded throughout with a kind of psychedelic sadness. All of this is expressed by means of long jagged acid guitar runs (or in acoustic strums) supported by Moroccan percussion (bongos?) and heavy bass lines from Christophe J. If the LP had been released in 1971, everyone would point to T-Rex as an influence, and call it "glam folk"; fast forward to today and it's hard not to think "loner," and draw comparisons with the music of Devendra Banhart.

"We're now four decades further on in the world's slow self-destruction, but this sole recording by the Beautiful Losers has lost nothing of its freshness and superb arrogance. Blessed by the listener who is going to discover such a hidden treasure!" - Jean-Emmanuel Deluxe
