Guitarist and long time Bad Seed (of Nick Cave-related renown) Mick Harvey teams up with lyricist Christopher Richard Barker to create The Fall and Rise of Edgar Bourchier and the Horrors of War. First single sounds like a fuzzy, distorted and almost punky affair with cheery vocals chanting sinister lyrics. And why not?
Mick Harvey has had an up-close-and-personal view of some of the last few decades’ finest songwriters, as veteran sideman to PJ Harvey and Nick Cave. For Intoxicated Women, he takes on the oeuvre of another legend of song: Serge Gainsbourg. Several guest vocalists help him out, such as Andrea Schroeder on the notable German cover of ‘Je T’aime’. On Mute.
After Intoxicated Man(1995) and Pink Elephants(1997), Delerium Tremens is the third installment of Mick Harvey translating Serge Gainsbourg songs into english. It has been a slow process for Harvey as much of his time is taken up with Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, as well as collaborating with PJ Harvey.
This release is a double collection of Mick Harvey’s two interpretive works of the musical compositions and performances of legendary singer songwriter Serge Gainsbourg. These recordings originally released in 1995/1997 are the first major translations of Gainsbourg’s work from French to English and the release includes two previously unreleased tracks ‘Dr Jekyll’ and ‘Run From Happiness’.
