I like his early '70s work the most (Histoire de Melody Nelson / Vu de l'exterieur), but he certainly was a character wasn't he? :lol: Only Serge Gainsbourg would get top notch session musicians like Sly & Robbie in the studio to lay down a groove and then put fart noises over the top of it, or jump on the rap bandwagon right at the end of his career and have a song with a chorus line that goes "a'slippedy slam bam boom bam Gainsbourg!"
Definitely, both great albums you mention. I have a particular thing for the Rock Around The Bunker album, probably my favourite for so many top songs one after the other, seemingly the album resulted from his anger at the rise of the Front National at the time, not least from being made to wear a yellow star as a child in Nazi occupied Paris. He seemed to court more controversy the older he got, not sure if all of it was deliberate either. Was listening to the last album he made, You’re Under Arrest, and he sounded really ill by then, it’s not by any means unlistenable but kind of sad hearing that obvious decline in his health due to his lifestyle. Certainly a great character, one of a kind. His constant reinvention of his musical sound was commendable too, anything but formulaic, and he could pull off all these different guises, where others may not have sounded all that convincing.

I can’t really understand that Brexit blues, if they don’t know which way to go, lyrics are not the easiest to follow, sounds like they were stuck in the middle of a binary choice (Cue, the incoming flack)
