Histoires de France is the band fifth studio album. Originally released in 1996 Brazilian label Museum Obscuro, it was a follow up to the band first compilation "Days of Creation" plublished one year before by Cri du Chat Disques (Brazil), introducing the band to the Sao Paolo dark cold minimal wave audience. It's title is a private joke to the overseas fans of the band. It's a second degree readingof the 50's school books. Excerpts from lessons, resumes, and artworks recreate the mood of a fantasmatic Middle Age. The fourteen tracks all all based on older versions, then published on very limited edition tapes, now thruth collector, released in the band early years, at the time of the first 12" and album "Cathdrale". Histoires de France is a return to more minimal music and a rendition to historical keyboards, SIEL Opra 6, Elex, Casio VL T etc.
This new edition, enhanced, offers the complete album and a bonus CD gathering the demo versions of all tracks, giving the possibility to hear the evolving, the sonic or structural transformations, to compare rough versions (direct two tracks recordings) and sometimes very different final versions.
