Bonnie and Clyde – Brigitte Bardot et Serge Gainsbourg – Anniversary Edition – LP
This anniversary re-issue of the famous collaboration between Sixties sex siren-turned-animal-rights-protester, Brigitte Bardot, and Smokey Le Fume himself, Serge Gainsbourg, is a musical exploration of the movie Bonnie et Clyde.
French Cinema was at its peak in the Fifties – Sixties, and this gansgter theme was part of the Nouvelle Vague cinema trend featuring outlaws and vagabonds of society – it tied in with the Hippie peace/love movement about to ‘happen’ in the State and England, but the French didn’t do bad fashion so they looked at characters who were rebels instead!
Anyway, the best track off the album has to be Bonnie et Clyde: breathy Brigitte, forceful Serge: who could want more? It’s fantastic, you need to have this in your collection if you don’t already!
