Get ready to dive into the enigmatic world of "Fashion Is A Dirty Word" by Bene Gesserit, a legendary release originally composed by Belgian icons Alain Neffe and Nadine Bal. This masterpiece, which was first unleashed in 1987 on Dave Henderson's Dead Man's Curve label, now receives its first official reissue, adorned with fresh new artwork, thanks to Brooklyn's Domani Sounds.

Bene Gesserit, the brainchild of Belgian pioneers Alain Neffe (the mastermind behind the cult label Insane Music) and Nadine Bal, defies easy categorization. Their music traverses the realms of dance, sound collage, and digital séance, captivating listeners with its eclectic and innovative spirit.

Some tracks on "Fashion Is A Dirty Word" exude an infectious '80s dance floor sensibility, while others venture into territories so alien and isolating that they challenge you to dance. Many compositions blur the line between music and sonic art, with titles drawn from the pages of a southern novel and vocals that linger hauntingly in your memory.

Decades after its original release, the sounds on "Fashion Is A Dirty Word" remain as mesmerizing and otherworldly as ever. This reissue gathers these sonic gems into one compelling journey—a peculiar slide into a future-past landscape that defies classification.

Bene Gesserit's historical and archival recordings have graced labels like Minimal Wave, EE Tapes, Walhalla, Cherry Red, and Stroom. Now, Domani Sounds proudly presents this classic as its debut release, inviting you to explore the timeless sonic landscape of Bene Gesserit.
