Gavin Friday on The Devil in Love (CD)

The Devil in Love (CD)

Gavin Friday has contributed a track to “The Devil in Love”, a soundtrack to the 1772 occult novel “Le Diable amoureux” by Jacques Cazotte.

Cazotte’s story follows the young nobleman Alvare as he summons Satan, who appears to him first in the shape of a dreadful camel, then as a spaniel dog and finally as a beautiful androgynous girl. Alvare wrestles with the temptation presented by this mysterious creature. Is the Evil One really as black as he is painted, and can Satan himself fall in love?

The contributing artists were handed “Le Diable amoureux” to read and then given free reign.

The double CD is released alongside the novel by Swedish publishers Malört Förlag and can be ordered through their website for €26 (including international postage).

    Sounds awesome. Can’t wait to get my hands on it. Gavin, Mark E. Smith asked me to ask you when your beautiful new album is coming out. We are all waiting, Lovely Angel.

    I guess I should support this, being Swedish and all, but occult… The Coffinshakers… wow, that´s some name… : ))))

    I would love to hear Gavin´s song on this though – is it possible to pick the strawberry off the cake (we´ve moved beyond prunes now, right?) and download it somewhere, legally? I would Gladly pay 26 euro for a compilation of Gavin´s collaborations through the years, with this one, “Lipstick”, “Ghostrider” and so on and so forth… that voice… Heaven not Hell…
