'- To mark its 2015 ten-year anniversary, the Finders Keepers label presents an improved, remastered repress, with updated liner notes in a gatefold sleeve, of its first release, a (long out-of-print) reissue of Jean-Claude Vannier's 1972 album L'Enfant Assassin des Mouches. - The seldom-sung musical arranger for Serge Gainsbourg's 1971 classic Histoire de Melody Nelson, Jean-Claude Vannier followed that album with an extraordinary concept album that encompasses psychedelic, classical, soundtrack, jazz, hip hop, samples, avant-garde, and funk. - Includes a full reproduction, in its native tongue, of Gainsbourg's bizarre short story, which accompanied the original release. - "Bizarre and astonishing ... Vannier best expresses himself by drawing hidden links between outwardly incompatible musical vocabularies, a strategy later to be reflected in the syncretic concepts of artists like Matmos, dj/Rupture, or Matthew Herbert. That Vannier was able to do so with such a high degree of melodicism, manic invention, and a contagious sense of wonder seems just so much extra frosting." --Pitchfork (8.4/10)
