Martin Dupont 4CD + T Shirt BOX (Infrastition)

Martin Dupont was without a doubt one of the biggest cult bands of the French New Wave scene of the early 80s! They were New Wave, dreamy electro, and coldwave yet completely accessible. Originally from Marseilles, Martin Dupont formed in 1981 and went on to release a single, a cassette, several albums, and played several live shows, supporting big acts such as Siouxsie & the Banshees and countless others.
The group consisted of Alain Seghir, Brigitte Balian and Beverley Jane Crew, with Catherine Loy in the original line-up. Their music style was classified as minimal synth mixing both male and female vocals.

This box includes their three albums plus an exclusive cd gathering unreleased tracks from 1981 to 1987, plus a Tshirt and a booklet.

CD 1 : Just Because + bonus
CD 2 : Sleep is a Luxury + bonus
CD 3 : Hot Paradox + bonus
CD 4 : Other Souvenirs

Mannequin Mailorder is taking the pre orders for the Martin Dupont BOX that will be out on the 21 March 2009 on Infrastition.
