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.


AllMusic describe 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]
