Live performance by Pierre de Gaillande's Georges Brassens Translation Project (Listen to this set: )
Transforming iconic French anarchist poet/singer Georges Brassens into an English-friendly form is composer/singer/songwriter Pierre de Gaillande's (The Snow, Melomane) latest musical venture. Pierre has translated a collection of Brassens' songs, strictly adhering to the rhyme scheme, meter, and meaning of the original texts, while preserving their flow and lyricism. He's recording an album of Brassiens' songs, keeping to the pared-down, simple yet undeniably catchy arrangements of the originals. Pierre de Gaillande was joined by bassist Christian Bongers, clarinetist Christian Spinley and flautist/ xylophonist/ charango player Quentin Jennings, playing a number of those songs live for the WFMU listeners.

Georges Brassens minus Georges Brassens equals zero.

Hello Irene et al.

Hey Carmichael - speaking of Bonzos (if I remember right your a fan), I got the dvd of "Do Not Adjust Your Set" at PB. You should check it out if you haven't yet...

BR, yes I'm a big fan. I'm acronym deprived these days. What's PB?
