Serge Gainsbourg covers featuring Nick Cave, Anita Lane, and Bertrand Burgalat.
Mick Harvey, a long time Nick Cave collaborator and
bandmate (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds/Crime & The
City Solution) is releasing a remastered double album
collection of his most important solo works to date -
two Serge Gainsbourg albums, Intoxicated Man and
Pink Elephants. The double collection will include
two unreleased tracks, ''Dr Jeckyll'' and ''Run From
Happiness.''
Intoxicated Man (1995) and Pink Elephants(1997)
are Mick Harvey's interpretations of the songs
of legendary singer, songwriter and poet Serge
Gainsbourg - they are the first major works translating
Gainsbourg's influential work from French to English.
Mick Harvey explains, ''Translating a great writer is like
walking through a minefield and I set myself the difficult
task of attempting to keep the places of rhyming,
metre and meaning accurate to the originals.''
The vocal parts originally sung by Gainsbourg's muses
Jane Birkin, Brigitte Bardot and daughter Charlotte
Gainsbourg are here sung by long time collaborator
Anita Lane - other guests on the albums include
Bertrand Burgalat, Warren Ellis, Nick Cave and David
McClymont.
