ILITCH

10 SUICIDES

SUPERIOR VIADUCT


Format: LP
Cata No: SV075
Barcode: 857176003751
In 1980, Ilitch mastermind Thierry Müller released his
second LP, 10 Suicides, on the French imprint S.C.O.P.A.
Unlike his debut Periodikmindtrouble (also available from
Superior Viaduct), which featured intricately layered instrumentals,
10 Suicides explores a more art-damaged
pop sensibility. While distorted guitars and atmospheric
synth workouts remain a part of Müller’s signature sound,
several songs credit the mysterious Ruth Ellyeri, who was
not an actual person, but rather Müller’s female alter-ego.
Opening track “Elle Voulait Que Je Sois Drôle” shows
Ilitch’s new direction with overloaded vocoders, driving
Moog basslines and soft, Eno-like melodic flourishes. The
androgynous vocals on “Waiting For Mabelle (Je Ne Viendrais
Pas)” resemble an upbeat Gregorian chant bent through
a 20th Century lens. 10 Suicides is a staggeringly personal
album that still sounds years ahead of its time.
This first-time vinyl reissue comes with 16-page booklet
and is recommended for fans of Ghédalia Tazartès, Chris &
Cosey and Monoton.
