Serge Gainsbourg - L'Homme A Tête De Chou

Year : 1976
Label : Philips
Genre : Rock
Style : Pop, Avantgarde

The fourth and last concept album after Histoire De Mélodie Nelson, Vu De L'exterieur (1973) and Rock Around The Bunker (1975). It's likewise the final collaboration of Serge Gainsbourg with british arranger/keyboardist, Alan Hawkshaw and the associated line-up. As his previous albums, Serge Gainsbourg combines Rock Avant-garde with poetry and music instilled by his predecessors as evidenced the reggae tune, Ma Lou Marilou, which was inspired by a passage from Ludwig van Beethoven' Piano Sonata No. 23 in F minor, op. 57. All tracks composed by Serge Gainsbourg & arranged by Alan Hawkshaw, recorded at Mercury studios in London & Paris.
