Amrap's AirIt | Australian Music Radio Airplay Project :: Rock :: Mick Harvey - Don't Say A Thing

Mick Harvey - Don't Say A Thing

Mick Harvey - Don't Say A Thing
It has taken 20 years for Harvey to resume his project of translating Serge Gainsbourg’s songs into English and June 24 sees what for many is the long hoped for continuation of the series, Volume 3 - Delirium Tremens.

After the reissue of the first two volumes - Intoxicated Man and Pink Elephants - as a double album in 2014, Harvey began playing select shows in Australia and Europe (including shows at Primavera and London’s Union Chapel) and the enjoyment factor was so high it led inevitably to speculative discussions as to whether it was time to resume and expand the project.

Delirium Tremens brings us another wide cross-section of Gainsbourg material. From 1976’s ‘The Man With The Cabbage Head’ (L’homme à Tête De Chou) all the way back to early songs, such as ‘Deadly Tedium’ (Ce Mortel Ennui) and ‘Coffee Colour’ (Couleur Cafe) from the late ’50s and early ’60s. There is even a version of ‘SS C'est Bon’ (Est-ce Est-ce Si Bon), from Gainsbourg’s controversial album Rock Around The Bunker, an album drenched in black humour and bad taste, coming as it does from a French man with Jewish ancestry.

About this track...

The Australian rock icon continues the next chapter of the project most dear to his heart, re-imagining the seductive tunes of the enigmatic French legend Serge Gainsbourg into English, with a flair that breathes new life into them for a modern audience with an invigorating new context.
