    Summary

    Electro Rapide is a collection of rare and unreleased archive material from the studio vaults of legendary French orchestral pop composer Jean-Claude Vannier. Taken from the period before and during his revered creative period with Serge Gainsbourg, these tracks reveal rare glimpses of Vannier's self initiated instrumental projects which were crowbarred between an air-tight studio diary as one of Frances most in-demand arrangers and composers of the post Mai 68 generation.

    Jean-Claude Vannier is globally recognised as one of the key exponents of the Gallic pop cognoscenti to make the significant change from 60s Ye- Ye to the brooding conceptual pop which defined the following decade, including his own masterworks Histoire De Melody Nelson and L'enfant Assassin Des Mouches (both of which benefited from the poetic prose of Serge Gainsboug). Electro Rapide combines a mixture of JCVs familiar trade-mark motifs and stylings from his coveted work for idiosyncratic French pop vocalists (such as Briggitte Fontaine, Claude Nougaro, Leonie and Anna St Clair) with the seldom heard experimental music for ballets, fashion shows as well as his infamous film music (such as the soundtracks for Cannabis and La Horse). Electro Rapide reveals a young Vannier in his embryonic stages before the birth of a true individual orch, pop funk legend, comprising some exclusive and previously unheard tracks alongside music culled from rare library music LPs, kids records, radio themes and his earliest soundtrack work. This archive is the closest Jean-Claude Vannier fans will get to a lost instrumental LP outside of his previous Finders Keepers Insolitudes release and his conceptual Georges Brassens tribute LP and features his favoured long-running session band featuring Arpardys & Brutus Drums percussionist Alain Pierre D'ahan and magma guitarist Claude Engel in their earliest assemblage. Utilizing a vibrant pallette of sonic ingenuity JCV combines pulpit percussion, scholastic instruments and a host of oblique international sounds to create a unique breed of French instro pop that went on to influence future generations of international progressive and cinematic music.
