The B-Music Of Jean Rollin 1968-1975

Finders Keepers Records


Released: 19th Jan 2018


Rising out of the smoky Parisian Mai 68 shrapnel and claiming his stake as the first French vampire movie director, the inimitable father of European horrortica Jean Rollin (1938-2010) has smudged the painted face of surrealist cinema for over five decades.

Dragging his roots from beneath the Letterist / Situationist movements, avant-garde theatre and Belgian fine art groups and entwining them around the minds of sexual revolutionaries, the European comic book cognoscenti and the Parisian free jazz and rock scenes, Rollin stopped at nothing to bring his macabre phantasies of zygotic vampyrism and backwoods blood cults to Gallic cinematheques and beyond. Celebrating the immortal legacy of the late director, Finders Keepers Records compile a detailed and comprehensive music cabinet of some of the finest musical moments from his initial directorial decade between 1968-1979, which provided a much-needed platform for the freak rock and free jazz that mirrored the distorted erotic visions in his own mind’s eye. Imagine Gong-gone-wrong meeting the Art Ensembles Of Châteauroux. Featuring tracks from Francois Tusques, Pierre Raph, Acanthus and Yvon Gerault. As the constant reappraisal of Jean Rollin’s body of work continues to pick up speed this important sonic snapshot of European horror scores brings together some of the most desirable and hard to find recordings from these important films.
