The Berlin-based band Les Hommes Sauvages consist of guitarist, songwriter and singer Kristof Hahn (SWANS, Pere Ubu, Koolkings) and singer and songwriter Viola Limpet (Tumbling Hearts). Guest musicians include Thomas Wydler (Bad Seeds, Die Haut), Chris Spedding, Toby Dammit (Iggy Pop, Bad Seeds), Yoyo Rohm (Swans, Mick Harvey) and Bela B. (Die Arzte). Hahn and Limpet coined the term 'rock 'n' roll noir' to describe their three timeless albums, now celebrated in 'Anthology.' All recordings were newly mastered in HD audio by Master & Servant for vinyl and digital distribution. The 'Anthology' box set exquisitely pairs Les Hommes Sauvages' sounds with the visual works of the Belgian painter Albert Pepermans for a daring journey across innovations and homages to cultural icons. French chansons, German electronics, British post-punk and American rock 'n' roll meet the vibrant urban images of Pepermans along with the audible and visual aesthetics of the film noir genre. 'Anthology' defies the premise that sight and sound are separate. See the music. Hear the paintings.
