Review Text The debut release from Finders Keepers Records, we present the seminal 1972 album from Serge Gainsbourg's right-hand man Jean-Claude Vannier. Recorded during the same sessions as Gainsbourg's highly acclaimed masterpiece "Melody Nelson" it follows in a similar avant-garde rock-opera vein. "L'Enfant Assasin Des Mouches" (The Child Fly-Killer) is a supernatural tale written by Gainsbourg depicting the journey of the young child travelling through a nightmarish "Fly Kingdom". Vannier narrates the story with sparse music concrete sounds coupled with choirs, funky beats, cowbells, wah-wah guitars and ethnic strings. Comparisons could be made with some of Frank Zappa's "Hot Rats" material and Alain Goraguer's creepy "Le Planet Sauvge".
