• Elucubrations – Antoine on 45 1965–1966 is the first time the complete tracks from the earliest EPs by France’s Antoine have been collected – including, as a special bonus, the first-ever reissue of his rare English-language single from 1966.
• Antoine was France’s Bob Dylan – his every song a word-filled counterpart to ‘Subterranean Homesick Blues’.
• He made waves. France had never seen or heard anything like Antoine. Johnny Hallyday ridiculed his long hair in song. Jacques Dutronc made his debut single ‘Et Mo Et Moi Et Moi’ as a comment on Antoine. He hung out in New York with the Velvet Underground.
• His early releases were joyful, tumbling slices of commentary on the issues of the day from war, to the generation gap.
• Now he is known from books and television as globe-trotting adventurer, sailing the world’s oceans. This is where the journey began.
