Mick Harvey - Intoxicated Women (2017)

Mick Harvey
Intoxicated Women

"Intoxicated Women" contains many duets and songs written by Gainsbourg, mostly during the 60s, in a period where he was focusing his songwriting on singers such as France Galle, Juliette Greco and most famously, Brigitte Bardot. Here Harvey has enlisted the talents of guest singers Channthy Kak (Cambodian Space Project), Australian singers Xanthe Waite (Terry, Primo), Sophia Brous, Lyndelle-Jayne Spruyt and Jess Ribeiro and the German chanteuse Andrea Schroeder plus a special appearance by Harvey's son, Solomon. The album opens with a stunning version of "Je T'aime… (Moi non plus)" - here titled "Ich Liebe Dich… (Ich Dich Auch Nicht)" - rendered in the sexiest imaginable German by the divine Ms. Schroeder and culminates with "Cargo Cult", the closing track from the classic "Melody Nelson" album. In between we are treated to a smorgasbord of Gainsbourg gems in English (with a bit of Khmer thrown in).
This album is Mick Harvey's volume #4 in Serge Gainsbourg Translations.
