WTM 1172: Serge Gainsbourg ~ wReck thiS meSS ~ Amsterdam ~ Ethno-Illogical Psycho-Radiographies ~ 04.03.14 It's 23 yrs since SG died & I seldom get choked up by the death of the famous, let alone years later. Serge was different, unique, larger than life, every guy’s role model – I mean Bardot, Birkin & Deneueve – but also fragile & humble in the shadow of his cravings & passions. Street & Shakespeare, humble & dapper, refined & deliriously primal, down & dirty, hi & low, poetry & porn, sex & art, serious & comical, pop & art in a manner few ever manage. 12 Serge radio shows on & I'm fascinated by how the young relate to him like no other of his contemporaries. His music is thievery re-swiped by the young to maintain its relevance. He had great audio instincts & it's his production values, the musicians he chose, that created a sophisticated sound: tangible, rich, broad, fat, glowing, pulsing, throbbing, suggestive & timeless. These versions would've made Serge VERY jolie.
