TRISOMIE 21 is a post punk band formed in 1981 by PHILLIPE LOMPREZ (vocals, drums) and HERVE LOMPREZ (guitar, electronics), two brothers from Abscon, in the North of France. They began composing songs at the age of 16 while studying at school. The brothers were influenced by Kraftwerk, The Residents, Yello, P.I.L as well as the films of George A. Romero. Their music consists of lush soundscapes that do not easily fit into any one category. Lyrics are sung in English because in the north of France the duo sought to contradict the trend at the time for everything to be sung in French. Musically their mood is melancholic and one can hear traces of Joy Division, Durutti Column and The Cure. Since 1983 they’ve recorded 15 albums and appeared on numerous compilations and remain active to this day.  In early 1982 they set out to record their first album joined by JEAN MICHEL MATUSZAK (keyboards) and PASCAL TISON (bass). Soon after that they sent out a demo tape and the Amiens-based record company Stechak offered them a deal. The mini-LP Le Repos des Enfants Heureux was released in January 1983. It was received well by both the public and the media, especially outside of France. Originally featuring 5 compositions, we’ve added 4 demos never before released on vinyl. All compositions, lyrics and music were made collectively from shared experiences bonding over travels, literature and cinema. All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The LP is housed in a replica of the original jacket featuring a black and white collage by Nadia Zibirskaïa and each copy includes a photo postcard featuring lyrics and notes.
