Jacques Dutronc (Self-Titled)

Year : 1966
Label : Vogue
Genre : Rock, Chanson Française
Style : Psychedelic, Beat

The year 1966, may be considered as the French rock birth act whose Jacques Dutronc was one of its most representative. Co-written with Claude Lanzmann, the Dutronc's debut album fuses Garage Rock, Psychedelia, Folk Rock music (L'opération) & African Chant (La Compadade). It is a must of the French Pop which recycles British & US Rock success, even borrowing some familiar tunes to The Rolling Stones, The Kinks or The Yardbirds, as evidenced "La Fille Du Père Noël" which shares the same riff as Bo Diddley on "I'm A Man". Between 1966-1975, Jacques Dutronc recorded seven albums for Vogue, taking over his predecessors Yé-Yé (a typical french musical pop genre), the French Dandy  is more provocative such as Serge Gainsbourg, using confusing humorous lyrics, wordplay with irreverence, cynicism and irony. Most of the songs are iconic, future standards of the french Pop and were hits during the sixties :  Les Play-Boys, Les Cactus, Et Moi, et Moi, et Moi, On Nous Cache Tout, On Nous Dit Rien, La Fille Du Père NoëlMini-Mini-Mini.
