Les Joyaux De La Princesse- Aux Petits Enfants De France cassette

Les Joyaux De La Princesse are a most recent obsession of mine, and I am pleased to offer up a record that’s been buzzing in my ears for a week straight. In short, Les Joyaux De La Princesse is a one man project from the heart of France. Les Joyaux De La Princesse has dabbled in several styles over the course of countless collaborations, generally circling around the industrial/noise/dark ambient realm.

The project began as far back as 1986, but the first recorded work, the cassette uploaded below, appeared in 1989. Since then, Les Joyaux De La Princesse has released countless limited edition records, each acting as a brief audio document of French history dating back as far as the 1930s. Les Joyaux De La Princesse has also collaborated with several key players in the scene, including the likes of Death in June, Muslimgauze, and Blood Axis. As of 2008, the man behind Les Joyaux De La Princesse records additional material as La Voix Des Nôtres.

Records indicate that the debut uploaded below hails from an extremely limited cassette recording. A limited edition of 49, I reckon this 1989 record would fetch a pretty penny if uncovered in its original form. It was re-released on CD in 1993. Without any further ado, the detials:

    Good evening,
    I found our family name on your site, in relation with an old musical activity that I had when I was younger. I choosed to perform as a musical band and not as a singular artist, and used a pseudonym. But on your site, I find my real name.
    Could you delete this name of your site, and so respect my privacy ?
    Thank you.

    sure thing, i will remove your name immediately.

    as an aside, you may want to get in touch with the folks at discogs.com, where i found your real name in regards to this fantastic project.

  5. Hello!

    I wanted to let you know that I've attempted to download this album a couple of times, and it doesn't seem to be working properly. I'd really like to give it a listen.

    Either way, thanks so much for what you are doing here!

  6. Great music! Thank you!!!

    you got it.

  9. […] This very rare disc was just lent to me by a generous fellow, so I’m inclined to upload it here for any curious parties. The disc in question is a collaborative effort between neofolk legends Death in June and the previously featured French one-man project Les Joyaux De Le Princesse. […]

  10. You just so made my morning! Ive been lamenting my loss of “Ostenbraun” for nigh 20 years now! Thanks!

    I’ve the original reissue edition of “Aux Petit Enfants De France” on BOX set limit.ed. numbered CD 1993 – TESCO ORGANISATION – TESCO 012 (complete of all: bklt, postcard, wheat tied whit tricolour ribbon… etc.)

  12. I just ran across the album “Aux petits enfants hyperactifs” by “Les Joyaux de la paresse”:
    which appears to be a parody of “Aux petits enfants de la France”.

    Is “Les Joyaux de la princesse” famous enough in France that many people would get the joke? It seems crazy that someone would go to all this trouble for an album whose original release was just 49 copies.
