One of the most underrated and misunderstood directors to emerge from the rising smoke of the 1968 Parisian social explosion, Jean Rollin – a director with early links with the Paris underground, The Letterists, The Surrealists, improv theatre and the free-press – is best known for his films in the fantastique genre, producing the first French vampire film (Le Viol Du Vampire, 1968).

To celebrate the launch of our new Rollinade series, documenting some of the finest musical moments of the director’s career as an avant-gardener, counter-culture vulture and Gallic vamp-tramp, Finders Keepers presents the entire unreleased soundtrack from the ultimate French vampire hippy flick ‘Le Frisson Des Vampires’ on CD and vinyl for the first time. Also available in the series is ‘Jeunes Filles Impudiques’, a veritable limited edition 5 track EP of drum heavy Gallic hard-bop and risque acidic folk and a hand numbered limited edition (100 only) lithographic reproduction print of the rare poster for Rollin’s 1979 film ‘Fascination’ illustrated by French painter Charles Rau.
