Varous Artists: Hommage a Duras

Interior Music (1987)

Interior Music was run in close association with Crépuscule by James Nice (Les Temps Modernes).


James Nice founded LTM Publishing (Les Temps Modernes) in 1984. His earliest releases championed the work of Section 25, Happy Family, The and Crispy Ambulance, among others.

In 1987 he moved to Brussels and began work at Les Disques Du Crépuscule, handling their mail
order operations. His role expanded swiftly into being, in his words, "a full-time job as a gofer for [Crépuscule boss] Michel Duval". His work was rewarded with his own sub-label, Interior Music.

Hommage a Duras was released on Interior Design. The sleeve lists Jobson's The Kiss, The Dance And The Death instead of India Song. Note that most
song titles are titles of novels by Margueritte Duras. The LP was previously released in different form and different sleeve in 1985 on CREPUSCULE AU JAPON (SC 1009-L).

In 1988, James Nice switched from Crépuscule to a position at Play It Again Sam (PIAS), and in 1990
decided to reactivate LTM. This second phase of his label really hit its stride when Nice started licensing and reissuing classic, long-deleted Factory and Crépuscule albums.
