Jean-Claude Vannier est étonnant et passionnant!

Jean-Claude Vannier arranged much of Gainsbourg's psychedelic sixties soundtracks as well as Histoire de Melody Nelson (1971).  He has gained more notoreity recently with the recently reissued L’enfant assassin des mouches (1973), where this video was provided as a bonus.  He recorded  five other very rare solo albums, he was a painter, writer, and the comic radio host of gardening and cooking shows for France Culture.

Andy Votel's JC Vannier mixtape,  Histoire De Melody Vannier, is absolutely essential, and the only readily available means of hearing some of Vannier's amazing soundtrack and studio work.
