Oizo’s second album to get vinyl release on Brainfeeder

OIZO MOUSTACHE SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT from oizo mr on Vimeo.

Moustache (Half A Scissor), the cultish second album from French producer Mr Oizo, will get released for the first time on vinyl via Flying Lotus’s Brainfeeder imprint.

A teaser video was posted up on Oizo’s Vimeo page this morning, which stated that the album will be released on wax in January 2011.

The album was first released on CD in 2005 on the now defunct F Communications, and included such legendary moments as “(e)”, “Drop Urge Need Elle”, the two title tracks and “Stunt”, which was probably the most linear track on the album.

His previous album on F Comm was the equally bizarre/brilliant Analog Worms Attack, which came out way back in 1999.

Following the release of Moustache, Oizo contributed just one more 12 inch to F Comm (the mindf*ck brilliance of “Nazis”), before the seminal label run by Laurent Garnier and Eric Morand folded in 2008. Ozio – real name Quentin Dupieux – then joined Pedro Winter’s Ed Banger camp, where he has remained ever since.

Earlier this year Fly Lo remixed “Rubber”, a collaborative effort produced by Oizo and Gaspard Auge of Justice. It was the lead track for an Oizo-produced movie of the same name, which depicted the homicidal rampage of a tyre blessed with psychokinetic powers.

It’s been an interesting year for Oizo, who also had the honour of remixing Squarepusher for a release on Ed Banger (with Tom Jenkinson subsequently telling Juno Plus that he’d like to remix Oizo’s remix).

The idea of Oizo working more closely with the fertile Brainfeeder camp is one that has us casting seductive glances in the direction of 2011.
