Mick Harvey Intoxicated Man / Pink Elephants on Limited Edition 2LP + Download

Mick Harvey, 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 - the two Serge Gainsbourg albums, Intoxicated Man and Pink Elephants. Harvey’s interpretations of the songs of the legendary singer, songwriter and poet and are the first major works translating Gainsbourg’s influential work from French to English. 

Harvey embarked on the project as a result of his own curiosity about the songs and particularly the lyrics. At the time of the original recordings Gainsbourg was little known outside classic works such as "Je T’aime...Moi Non Plus" (I Love You...Nor Do I) and "Bonnie & Clyde." On this collection these classic works are presented alongside dozens of Gainsbourg’s lesser known yet equally intriguing and unusual compositions.

The vocal parts originally sung by Gainsbourg’s muses Jane Birkin, Brigitte Bardot and daughter Charlotte Gainsbourg are sung here by long time collaborator Anita Lane while other guests on the albums include Bertrand Burgalat, Warren Ellis, Nick Cave and David McClymont.

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. One or more of these elements is usually dispensed with in the translating of poetry and lyrics, but I did not want to iron out any of Gainbourg’s more aberrant angles or lose any of his especially perverse and peculiar touches."
