There remain many unsung heroes of library music, notably those composers of experimental film music released in France, Italy and the UK from the '60s through to the early '80s. Of those reclusive composers, there's perhaps only one who has gone on to carve a spot for himself in today's musical landscape: astral traveller Bernard Fevre emerged from the shadows when Richard D James reissued his legendary ’78 LP as Black Devil, “Disco Club”, on Rephlex Records. An analogue masterpiece made with fellow library musician Jacky Giordano in the suburbs of Paris, with synths, tape loops and a drummer. Rumours flew - was the record really made by Luke Vibert or Giorgio Moroder? - but Fevre put all speculation to rest by continuing to explore his murky disco themes on releases like “28 After”, “Black Devil In Dub” and “Eight Oh Eight”, as well as a partial re-issue of rare library LP “The Strange World”. His live show, realised together with record trafficker and musique concrète expert Gwen Jamois, explores the meandering footnotes of each demonic disco hook like a dewey decimal maniac – come get lost in the stacks!
