Annik Honoré (1957-2014)
Les Disques du Crépuscule


On July 3rd we learned with great sadness that our co-founder and friend Annik had passed away following a short battle with cancer. Annik co-founded Factory Benelux and Crépuscule with Michel Duval in 1980, having already organised a series of landmark happenings at the Plan K in Brussels (including Factory, Zoo and Postcard nights), and would also play a major role in promoting some of the best Belgian bands of the era including Digital Dance, The Names, Marine and Front 242. There’s another story too, which got turned into a movie, but that shouldn’t define her.

The name Crépuscule – ‘twilight’ – was Annik’s idea. The photo above is from happier times and shows her relaxing at Intérferences, the Crépuscule cafe/bar on Rue de la Tête d’Or. Actually Annik smiled a lot, and was one the warmest, kindest, most generous and honourable people it’s been my privilege to know. In 2009, when we returned to Plan K with A Certain Ratio, Section 25, The Wake and The Names, a friend of mine got rather tired and emotional in the wee small hours and had to be taken back to the hotel. It was Annik who stepped in to drive her across town at 3am in the morning and make sure she was safe, even though they had never met before. That’s the Annik we will always remember, and will always love.

Adieu, Annik. Your star will shine forever in our Twilight.

「ああ、果てしない闇がひろがり銀色の波につゝまれて、寶瓶宮の下の死の海の魚たちは、朝の訪れを待つてゐる。わたしは草床のなかゝら 露にぬれて、身を起すのだが、うすら寒い、雨のあしたに、灰色にをのゝいてゐる。あゝ、今日も日はさゝない。煙のなかに生まれた蝗は、とんで行く、飛躍 とんでゆく 」( 三島由紀夫 /第五の喇叭 -黙示録 第九章 )

Durutti Column – Piece for an Ideal

アニーク・オノレとクレプスキュールが提唱した ” twilight ” 、あの80年代初頭はまだ日没後のたそがれ(時)の、薄明の、美しい微かなひとの温もりとやさしさがあった。いままさに50歳をこえる年齢になったあの美しかった女性たちも、昔のような優しさや女性らしさがなくなり、しみしわも目立ってきているんだろうな。一番活力があり輝いている青春時代を耽美でロマンチックな80年代を過ごすことのできた幸せ者の彼女たちは、まだ音楽を聴く時間を持っているのだろうか? もしそうなら、たまには、そうした女性もぼくに会いに来てくれてもよさそうなものなのに、、、w。あれから30数年、この時代を例えるなら、Twilightから、まさに” Blackest Ever Black ” だよね。
