Officially released in 1999, two years after being produced, “The Jag” is the song that allowed The Micronauts to sign with Science, a London-based offshoot of Virgin Records (now Virgin EMI Records). The A&R was Steve Brown, who also ran The Chemical Brother’s label Freestyle Dust. Label mates were Detroit pioneer Stacey Pullen, as well as kings of avant-garde drum & bass Photek and Source Direct.

Having reached today the status of a cult classic, “The Jag” immediately caught the attention of the famous British music weekly NME, which supported it strongly.

“As a French fan of music, being signed to the UK branch of Virgin Records and lauded by the legendary newspaper NME was like a consecration”

En 1993, Têtu fait la part belle à la musique électronique…

Avant de devenir le magazine phare de la communauté gay, Têtu est un fanzine breton au format changeant créé par Loïc Prigent, futur journaliste-star de la mode, avec l’aide de Gildas Loaec, futur co-fondateur du label de musique et de mode Kitsuné.

« Loïc est fan d’eDEN et nous envoie son premier numéro, qu’on adore. Il écrira ensuite pour notre fanzine. De mon côté je lui écris quelques playlists et chroniques, publiées sous mon pseudo Widowsky. Loïc soutient aussi à fond mon 1er maxi en tant que Nature. »
