"Glaciales et psychotiques.Unique et fascinant".

That's how French magazine Elegy describe "It's Luxury",the Cindytalk track included in their Sampler 52 that accompanies the magazine of the same number.There's also a one-page review of the ill-fated reissues:

It has to be said that the band were NEVER contacted regarding this sampler.
Apparently,it was the French distributor who gave the final go ahead (?!?!).

Yes but considering that Abraxas have effectively stolen our back catalogue and may well have told their satelite distributors to do whatever they want,i'd give this magazine the benefit of the doubt.Though in truth,if they had asked us for permission it would certainly been denied!!!

Arghhhhhhhh.If you click on the link in french at the top of this entry it takes you to the Elegy sampler in Discogs,which states that "It's Luxury" was written by Gordon Sharp!!! Fucking imbeciles.Why don't people read the credits on Camouflage Heart before they finalise these compilations (or complete these entries to online resources."It's Luxury" was written by David Clancy,John Byrne & Gordon Sharp.If anybody fancies submitting a change to Discogs i'd be appreciative.Discogs is a disgrace in my opinion,they have so many innacuracies regarding Cindytalk that i've tried to inform them of but they refuse to listen for some reason.

I noticed that too.I cannot remember what my Discogs password is but in any case the people submitting information at Discogs and the moderators seem to think they have some sort of divine wisdom and often refuse to change anything.They have been particularly stubborn with Cindytalk,despite clear evidence proving their information was wrong.

Managed to send a correction.
Let's see what they come up with this time...

Elegy's not a very good magazine IMHO : very "cliché" - not much subtext. Will send an English translation though, when I find some time to do it...
This and the Magic review that's more interesting.
