“If I had known this is how it would goWhat would I have changed? What would I have done?Who would I have loved? Who would I have left?Would I still be here?If I look back at you and meIf I ask myself what could have beenWhat I would have done and how I would have lived” (Bastille Day, 1961)

2022 marks two decades since the release of the magnificent album “The Scavenger Bride” and there is no better way to celebrate the anniversary than to release it for the first time on vinyl.“The Scavenger Bride” is a unique moment in Black Tape For A Blue Girl’s long evolution; it contains so many brilliant and inspiring songs, such as “Floats In The Updrafts”, “The Scavenger Bride”, “A Livery Of Bachelors”, “The Lie Which Refuses To Die”, “The Scavenger’s Daughter”, “The Whipper”.Among them, a few words could be found to describe three of the top songs not only of the album, but the entire course of Black Tape For A Blue Girl.

We are talking about the seductive “All My Lovers” let by the passion and power of vocalist Elysabeth Grant, the ten-minute “Like A Dog/ Letter To Brod” where the band experiments unabashedly, until the piano takes the baton and throws the curtain in an amazing way and finally Elysabeth’s “Bastille Day, 1961”, which is simply one of the most emotional songs ever composed in the field of Gothic/Ethereal/ Neoclassical.

We are so proud to announce the release of the legendary “The Scavenger Bride” album for the very first time on vinyl.
