Marquis de Sade were a French post-punk band, active between 1977 and 1981. In their time, the group produced two studio albums, 1979's Dantzig Twist and 1981's Rue de Siam.

Background[edit]

AllMusic described the band's sound as "witty, dark and exciting music comparable to Howard Devoto's Magazine, mixing post-punk and new wave with a drop of funk to produce an intensely nervous, modern, yet romantic sound, often copied but rarely equaled."[1] Billboard called the band's two albums "highly influential".[2]
