L’Homme à tête de chou
“He needed the discotheques / And eat at the Kangaroo / Club so I signed checks / Without provision I was crazy / I am the cabbage head man / Half vegetable half guy.
Who else but Serge Gainsbourg could imagine such a story and develop it throughout the duration of an album? Interned in a psychiatric clinic, the man in question there rehash his fatal adventure with the beautiful Marilou for which he slammed all his money and even more, before demolishing it in a bout of madness with fire extinguishers. Released in 1976, this anthology record, which did not immediately achieve success, is now a scenic work. Jean-Claude Gallotta pays homage to him with this choreography conceived around a new version recorded by Alain Bashung. He develops around this story of love and death, at once sensual and ironic, bitter and hallucinated, a haunting choreography.”
