Marc Moulin

'Placebo Years Lost & Found'

release September 21, 2018

Lost & Found or the musical flair of Marc Moulin.

 

Elegantly picking up the trends of his time, Marc Moulin (1942-2008) anticipated new musical genres with the production of cult albums. He made his own cocktail of jazz, soul, downtempo, electro and lounge with Placebo (1971-1974), Sam Suffy (1976), Telex (1979-1986) and a trilogy on the Blue Note label (2001-2007).

Unreleased tracks are now resurfacing with Lost & Found, a compilation of three tracks originally recorded in 1973 for Phalène, the play by journalist and playwright André Drossart.

This session was recorded with  Marc Moulin's band Placebo.

Whereas the track Phalène had already been published in a shortened version on Placebo's album 1973 and on the B-side of the single Balek, Lost & Found presents its full 28-minute version, as well as two new compositions of the time, Phalène III and Phalène IV.

And for the first time, after 45 years, Placebo's original 3 LP's are available on digital platforms.

 

Ten years after his death, Marc Moulin has left us an imposing musical heritage that we continue to enjoy.

Philip Catherine and STUFF. pay tribute to Marc Moulin during a unique concert. By doing so, Flagey puts the musical genius of the Belgian jazzfunk-electro pioneer in the spotlight ten year after after he passed away.

 

Marc Moulin is known as a man whose music was much ahead of time. His various groundbreaking records were always announcing new music genres: fusion jazz with Placebo, downtempo with Sam Suffy, electro techno with Telex and lounge with his Blue Note-trilogy. His musical heritage has inspired not only Belgian artists but musicians world-wide.

 

Belgian legend Philip Catherine starts the evening with his interpretation of Moulin’s music. Until his death in 2008, both friends were sparring partners. Catherine inspired his friend Moulin to start playing the electric guitar and to form the band Placebo. Philip Catherine’s quintet plays songs from the legendary album Stream which he recorded in 1971 with Marc Moulin and producer Sacha Distel, re-released in 2017 by Warner.

After the intermission, STUFF., known for their strong and surprising live shows, reworks Moulin’s musical heritage in their very own way. They create their own sound with components from fusion jazz known to us from Placebo or the beats of Telex.

Philippe Baron: 10 years ago, we lost Marc Moulin, musician and so much more. #todayinjazz we start a series, digging back into our archives to hear Marc talking about music. To hear not only his clever comments, but also that special voice again. It will go on until October 13th, when Musiq3 will broadcast a special Moulin memorial concert live from Flagey, featuring Philip Catherine and Lander Gyselinck's Stuff. Philip is said to include several tracks from "Stream", his first album, on which Marc Moulin was keyboard player.
