- Courts Metrages by Francois de Roubaix
I really enjoyed that last Francois De Roubaix album. I felt sophisticated listening to it, like I should have been drinking many a swish beverage in a lavish ballroom whilst leering smugly at elegant ladies in insanely intricate dresses. Here is another double collection of his works for short films which traverse cocktail jazz, twee psychedelic ambience, Eastern inflected waltzes, sun-kissed easy listening, kitsch lounge music ala John Barry, barking mad psych-pop with Gaelic scatting & freeform brass, classical jazz guitar interludes .....Jesus, this guy had something to offer for any day of the week, any feel, any mood. I'd have been terrified of opening his wardrobe. Can you imagine the range, the colours? Anyway, this double vinyl is stacked with incidental music recorded over a decade that saw the rise & fall of the Beatles & then some. There's a world of archival delights here. For every track that doesn't quite hit the mark for you I can guarantee there'll be a Ghost Box style gem or some such evocative delight to treasure. He looks a total dude on the cover too. I bet he had the lasses fainting in droves with those flowing locks.
