One of the most underrated and misunderstood directors to emerge from the rising smoke of the 1968 Parisian social explosion, Jean Rollin – a director with early links with the Paris underground, The Letterists, the Surrealists, improv theatre and the free press – is best known for his films in the fantastique genre, producing the first French vampire film (Le Viol Du Vampire, 1968).
As part of our (slightly interrupted) 15th birthday celebratory retrospective reappraisals we present an updated package of the title that launched our new Rollinade series, documenting some of the finest musical moments of the director’s career as an avant-gardener, counter-culture vulture and Gallic vamp-tramp, the entire unreleased soundtrack from the ultimate French vampire hippy flick Le Frisson Des Vampires on blood red transparent vinyl (with a black vinyl pressing to follow in the new year). Also available in the series is Jeunes Filles Impudiques, a five-track EP of drum heavy Gallic hard-bop and risqué acidic folk, François Tusques’ previously presumed lost/unreleased studio sessions that went on to score both La Reine Des Vampires and La Vampire Nue, and more!
