Gainsbourg - Jungle Editions
Son of Russian emigrants, Serge Gainsbourg revolutionized the French variety of the seventies. His deliberately commercial approach, born of his own failure in text song, has upset the codes of popular song.
This rage to win his place in a field which was not his will have burned his wings as surely as he will have given us masterpieces.
A huge poet drowning his childhood dreams in alcohol, Serge Gainsbourg is one of those men who remind us that the ambiguity of feelings is hopeless.
