About the show

Playing tracks by

Interpreté par dZihan and Kamien, Interpreté par Faze Action, Interpreté par Carla Bruni, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Interpreté par Howie B and more.

I'm a big fan of Serge Gainsbourg. A few years ago i read his biography (A fistfull of Gitanes) and i became obsessed with his music. A movie about his life and music (Gainsbourg, vie héroique) is now showing (or soon). I also included a track by his daughter Charlotte from her new album IMR produced by Beck. The other tracks by Beck and Air are highly influenced by Serge Gainsbourg. The rest of the non-Gainsbourg tracks are from two excellent tribute cd's: I Love Serge/Electronicagainsbourg and Monsieur Gainsbourg Revisited.
In the 80's he went to Jamaica to record a reggae-album with Sly & Robbie, he pushed the career of Vanessa Paradis, who had a huge hit with Tandem. The last years before he passed away he often appeared drunk (and always with a cigarette) in talk-shows. He's famous for making a pass on a young and innocent Whitney Houston (hilarious! it's on YouTube).
