Intoxicated Man 1958-1962 2CD - Serge Gainsbourg

Intoxicated Man 1958-1962 2CD
There are many standard-issue personae to which an aspiring rock star might be drawn, but one has always been cooler, darker and sexier than all the rest. It is that of the artist who single-mindedly pursues his creative muse while embracing the full panoply of self-destructive, decadent, bad boy behaviour: heavy drinking, frequent drug use, committed womanising, a general fuck-you attitude to both public and media, a casual disregard for society's sacred cows and taboos, and a self-belief bordering on the messianic. For three turbulent decades Serge Gainsbourg heroically exemplified all of the above - and much more.
He wrote and directed four controversial movies, he published a scurrilous novel, his records were often denounced as obscene (Je t'aime...Moi Non Plus famously scandalised the Vatican and was banned by the BBC) and he was perpetually embroiled in scandal, whether for turning up drunk on a TV show and offering to f**k fellow guest Whitney Houston, recording a reggae version of Le Marseillaise, burning a 500 franc banknote on prime-time TV, or making a decidedly queasy video with his 13-year-old daughter Charlotte to promote their single, Lemon Incest.
Summarising his approach to life and art, he said: "Without controversy it would all be very boring" and "For me, provocation is oxygen." This 66 track two-cd set is a comprehensive survey of the first five years of Gainsbourg's recording career; comprising each of the first four, remarkable, solo albums, singles, live performances, film soundtracks and covers including the EP that the eternal Juliette Greco devoted to Gainsbourg compositions.
Serge Gainsbourg has been one of, if not the, major single European influence on British and American independent pop music; Portishead, Franz Ferdinand, Tricky, Jarvis Cocker, Beck, Arcade Fire, Placebo, PJ Harvey, Mick Harvey, Momus and Belle and Sebastian have all claimed him as mentor, while in France, Gainsbourg is nothing less than an institution. As Jane Birkin put it recently: "Now French culture is talked of as before and after Serge."

Lost Loves
Released on 13/02/12. Serge Gainsbourg was known outside France
primarily for the steamy duet J'taime moi non plus but to those at home
he stood as the ultimate rebel artist. He has been described as
debauched, irreverent, misanthropic, dissolute, a provocateur, a genius,
an alcoholic, a poet, a national treasure and a romantic who handled
language with cynical humour. His poetry was compared to Rimbaud and
Baudelaire, his morality to the Marquis de Sade. He wrote and directed
four controversial movies, published a scurrilous novel, his records
were often denounced as obscene and he was perpetually embroiled in
scandal, whether for turning up drunk on a TV show and offering to F***
fellow guest Whitney Houston, recording a reggae version of Le
Marseillaise or burning a 500 franc banknote on prime-time
television.Gainsbourg was surely the only man ever to have written hit
songs about the joys of incest, sodomy, motorcycles and cigarettes and
to still be awarded the Chevalier Des Arts et Lettres, his country’s
highest artistic honour. Summarising his approach to life and art, he
said: "Without controversy it would all be very boring. For me,
provocation is oxygen."Brigitte Bardot the very name signals instant
revolution in films, fashion, lifestyles and sexuality. She is
undoubtedly one of the most famous French women of all time, indeed
there has rarely been any woman of any one land commanding so much
impact upon her times reverberating still in her retire-ment, as
film-makers, actresses, designers and jet-setters, continue to pour
through the various doors of permissivity she has sundered with
immeasurable elan.In 1967, Bardot and Gainsbourg would record the
original Je t'aime moi non plus and conduct a clandestine affair. At the
start of the sixties, however, while Gainsbourg was busy establishing
himself as enfant terrible de la chanson française, Bardot, having
already struck the first cinematic blow for women's liberation with And
God created Woman, was France's biggest star and the symbol for a new
breed of femininity and sexuality that would change the world...

Torsten The Bareback Saint (CD/Book)
•    In an amazing and surprising career move and, in his own words, "the biggest challenge of my career so far”, Erasure’s Andy Bell is ‘Torsten The Bareback Saint’. Andy sings in character as an age-defying polysexual in an all new solo album that is the soundtrack to the theatre show of the same name. A theatre show that is headlining the Assembly - Venue One, George Square at the 2014 Edinburgh International Fringe Festival and which, even before opening, has been already been named in The Times newspaper as being in their Times 2 'Top Ten Pick Of The Fringe'.

•    "Torsten The Bareback Saint” is a highly theatrical and moving song-cycle of lyrical postcards from the hotspots of an outsider’s memory; memories from a life lived as a semi-immortal, learned sensualist. Andy Bell as ‘Torsten’ sings deeply affecting expositional songs that incrementally illuminate his extraordinarily mysterious life as a man disconcerted by his own bizarre experience of the nature of passing time.

•    Torsten is an ‘everyman’ for our times; a prophet of longing, loss and love ever after.

•    The CD is housed in a deluxe 36 page hardback book containing the full libretto and production photographs.

•    The show and album are subject to a major national PR campaign over press, radio, TV and online.

There is also a special 7" single available - www.cherryred.co.uk/shopexd.asp?id=4822 and a Performance Programme - www.cherryred.co.uk/shopexd.asp?id=4823

NB: This title is released July 28 and will not be dispatched before this date.
