Le Volume Courbe

Fourteen Years

Out of Stock

Fourteen Years is the first of three 10” comprising Charlotte Courbe’s third album. It marks her return to Honest Jon’s after two decades. Recently, Charlotte joined Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, singing and playing scissors. Her recording Born To Lie featured prominently in the TV series Killing Eve. Spotify has just voted her track Rusty amongst the best of the last decade.

After a cancer diagnosis last year, Charlotte felt the urge to produce and release new music. “It became like a vital thing.” MRI Song and Planet Ping Pong were recorded during chemotherapy. Mind Contorted is a duet with Terry Hall, also featuring Terry’s son Theodore, and Noel Gallagher on guitars, in a cover of Daniel Johnston.

The song Fourteen Years is the oldest inclusion. Meant for LVC’s second album — I Wish Dee Dee Ramone Was Here With Me — it announces a fresh, freer direction. The sleeve exclusively presents new work by the celebrated English artist John Stezaker, in the first of a triptych.

This EP is laced with surprise and subversiveness. Its refreshing candour sets it apart. It’s a unique, compelling listen.

I put out the first Le Volume Courbe single in 2001... she reminded me of a female Syd Barrett… real psychedelic soul.” - Alan McGee

“When I first met her she was wearing a cape. She looked like a little piece of Lego. She told me she liked some of my songs but not all of them. (I hadn’t even asked her opinion!) She’s beautiful, fearless and one hell of a tambourine player." - Noel Gallagher
