On 21 October, the Barbican in London will feature Jean-Claude Vannier playing the music of Serge Gainsbourg‘s Histoire de Melody Nelson & L’Enfant Assassin Des Mouches, with special guests Jarvis Cocker, Badly Drawn Boy, Mick Harvey, Gruff Rhys & Laetitia Sadier.

“On the 21st October Finders Keepers and Andy Votel will play a key role in the assemblage of a 40 piece orchestra, a 30 piece choir and one of the finest British rhythm sections from the annals of rock history for a one-off special event which fans of conceptual Gallic psych-rock probably never thought they’d experience in this mortal lifetime.”
