Les Poinçonneurs present: Gainsbourg Confidential

Aside from having earned status as one of the world’s most revered and influential songwriters, Serge Gainsbourg was also a painter, actor, filmmaker, screenwriter, director, novelist, poet, and composer. Gainsbourg is a true example of the renaissance man, a multitalented cultural polymath whose life

was so filled with both odd coincidence and calculated career savvy that he makes contemporary attempts at such ubiquity seem laughable.

Across a 30-plus year recording career, he moved from modern jazz sounds to explorations of African highlife, Afro Cuban dance orchestras, French Antillean zouk and compas rhythms and even Jamaican reggae.

To celebrate what would have been the master's 90th birthday, we have enlisted Jean de Talhouët of Super Best Friends Club to pull together a motley crew of musicians to take us on a wild journey through the life of one of the 20th century's standout cultural icons.

Line up:

Cherise Adams-Burnett - vocals
Garance Louis - vocals, accordion
Johnny Woodham - trumpet
Jean de Talhouët - guitar
Dorian Ford - piano
Huw Williams - bass
Simon Roth - drums
