Back in 1982, many were happy to believe that Deux Filles really were tragic French orphans Claudine Coule and Gemini Forque. In reality, the ambient/instrumental duo comprised Simon Fisher Turner, former child star/teen idol and future soundtrack composer, and songwriter/technician Colin Lloyd Tucker.

As Deux Filles the pair released two highly collectable albums: Silence & Wisdom (1982) and Double Happiness (1983), both of which are included in this deluxe digipack 2xCD package. Remastered by Colin Lloyd Tucker, the booklet features interviews with Turner and Tucker along with a multitude of charming archive images.

"Sulty atmospheres, dreamy layers of music" (Uncut, 02/2013)

"Drifting and wistful, they're a pair of lost ambient gems dragged back into the limelight. With excellent sleevenotes and period photos, this reissue should be snapped up. 4 stars" (Record Collector, 02/2013)

"With numerous friends, including versatile Matt Johnson and Annie Hogan, the girls have built an insular solitude which breathes calm and order. Like an early French film soundtrack with melodramatic overtones, the sound is jagged and disjointed but never harsh. Lilting guitars and ample use of echo smack of Vini Reilly, relying on the hypnotic qualities of the sound rather than abrasive noise" (Sounds, 03/1983)
