Serge Gainsbourg - L'homme A Tete De Chou (1976)

Posted by Amelia Swhizzagers On 3:13 AM

Originally released in 1976, L' Homme À Tête de Chou is Serge Gainsbourg's second concept record. His first was the stone classic Histoire de Melody Nelson, released five years prior. Translating as "The Man with the Cabbage Head," L' Homme À Tête de Chou is a brutal story of lust and obsession in which, over the course of the album, the narrator falls in love with a black shampoo girl (Marilou), beats her to death with a fire extinguisher, and ends up in a psychiatric hospital. Featuring lush orchestration and a variety of influences from reggae to funk to country, L' Homme À Tête de Chou is a crucial part of the musical history of one of France's most famous and certainly most controversial stars.
