Bad Reputation

Barbes Records

In the music CD album Bad Reputation, Paris-born, California-raised singer, musician, composer, and translator Pierre de Gaillande brings the wondrous, vivid, and at times bawdy world of Georges Brassens to English-speaking audiences. Skillfully translated and performed by Gaillande, Bad Reputation sometimes uses off-color language to convey its wicked insights, but is ultimately a celebration of pop culture's on-the-pulse insights into everyday life. Bad Reputation is for mature listeners only - and decidedly worth listening to. The tracks are "The Princess and the Troubadour", "To Die For Your Ideas", "Penelope", "Don Juan", "Song for the Countryman", "Ninety-Five Percent", "I Made Myself Small", "Philistines", "Trumpets of Fortune and Fame", "Public Benches", "Absolutely Nothing", "The Pornographer", and "Bad Reputation". 05/01/10 >> go there
