2008 mini LP sleeve reissue of this album from Serge Gainsbourgs right-hand man Jean-Claude Vannier. originally released in 1972. Recorded during the same sessions as Gainsbourgs highly acclaimed masterpiece Melody Nelson it follows in a similar avant-garde rock-opera vein. LEnfant 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 Zappas Hot Rats material and Alain Goraguers creepy Le Planet Sauvge.
