      just a bit of background as to is involvement in music / any important releases (besides insolitudes).

      he only ever seems to get mentioned as "oh, he was the arranger on blah de blah's record", rather than in his own right...

        heres a complete discog: http://perso.wanadoo.fr/zuzudisco/vannier/vandisco.htm

        i recommend the: "Interpète les musiques de Georges BRASSENS" if yr a fan of his string arrangements - no funky stuff but still well amazing - the 7" just before in the discog is sublime & v funky but incredibly rare.. there's also a really cool lp which i think may be his first recording date and his involvement as arranger is at the forefront: MARTIAL SOLAL JOUE MICHEL MAGNE well rare though..

            heres something i prepared earlier.......

            Within the last ten years the resurgence of sixties gallic pop, once known as ye-ye music, has escalated beyond an inter-stella dizzy-height. What might have been a waning, embarrassing genre destined for a shelf life/death gathering dust amongst the Eurovisions of yesteryear the ‘jerk-beat’ psychsploitation records of the latter day french-disco had soon found new floorspace in some of the most credible nightspots in London and Japan. Without a shadow of doubt, the flagship LP with best odds on becoming a discerning household object was HISTOIRE DE MELODY NELSON by one SERGE GAINSBOURG. An inimitable, 45 minute concept LP handcrafted by a bass-driven psychedelic rock groop and a heaven-sent, 1001 piece orchestral and choral symphony. The album left Hip-Hop producers alongside progressive rock aficionados crying out for more and more for years to come. This LP was in a league of its very own..... or was it?
            The seldom-sung musical arranger for Melody Nelson has become one of the most enigmatic names in french-funk, lorded by many as THE FRENCH DAVID AXLEROD, Jean-Claude Vanniers name is the lesser-spotted, tell-tale seal of sample-friendly quality when it comes to crate-digging ‘en francais’.
            Suitably, when rumours amongst french record dealers claiming “THE BAND WHO PLAYED MELODY NELSON RECORDED A FOLLOW-UP LP” became a legend of psychedelic- folk-lore. Another unconfirmed rumour about JCV ‘taking the remaining out-takes of the beloved Melody Nelson to create a promo-only experimental rock LP’ left sample hungry producers and DJs in turmoil..... For those in the know the answers to these mysteries lay flat between the anonymous gatefold sleeve of an undiscovered conceptual album bizarrely entitled “L'ENFANT ASSASSIN DES MOUCHES” by a custom-built avant-rock entourage called Insolitudes. The rocking -horse manure treasure-hunt began.

            So here we have it. The mythical teen-tonic for all those suffering from Melody Nelson withdrawal symptoms. For record collectors looking for that ‘special something’ this LP contains the extra-special-EVERYTHING. Peruse the following genres PSYCHEDELIC, CLASSICAL, SOUNDTRACKS, JAZZ, HIPHOP SAMPLES, AVANT GARDE, FUNK. Then place a copy of “L'ENFANT ASSASSIN DES MOUCHES” in each section.
            History denotes that when ‘our man in Paris’, Msr.Gainsbourg first heard the initial bones of this LP he took his poetic pencil to paper providing bizarre liner notes, thus consummating the most extraordinary concept album of all time. The story ‘The Child Assassin Of The Flies’ was to be included as the only information to grace the LPs highly collectible, concertina gatefold sleeve. The story, in-full is reproduced in its native-tongue on this very special re-release package.

            DJs and Producers such as JIM O’ROURKE, STEREOLABs Tim Gane and DAVID HOLMES have spent sleepless nights in pursual of original copies of this perfect release and now regard it as ‘One Of The Best’. Recent copies on Ebay have commanded ridiculous price-tags, and is now one of the most sought-after articles amongst the vinyl hungry hip-hop community.

            Finders Keepers, a new label bought to you by ANDY VOTEL (Twisted Nerve) Doug Shipton (CHERRY RED) and Dom Thomas from B-MUSIC (Manchester’s premier psychedelic-shin-dig), see “L'ENFANT ASSASSIN DES MOUCHES” as a the perfect introduction to a label which plans to bring you the best in undiscovered and unreleased LPs from around the globe. Expect Unreleased British Soundtracks, Turkish Psych, Argentinian Exploitation, Welsh Rare-Beats and Japanese Choreography Records all presented for the first time on CD and many for the first time on DJ-friendly Loud Black Plastic.
            Fans of Andy Votels ‘MUSIC TO WATCH GIRLS CRY’ mix CDs, the groud breaking ‘Finders Keepers’ compilation on Fat City Records and the exploits of fellow audiophile CHERRYSTONES on 13AMP will have some indication of what to expect from an independent company run by long time vinyl addicts who dig that little bit deeper on your behalf.

                      i&#39;m sure this is well know - Vannier, till recently denied that the Lp (mouches) even existed, in interviews he would just stop talking if somebody mentioned the &quot;lp&quot; - this was his reaction to the way he felt he had been treated by gainsbourg - lets not forget that part of gainsbourg&#39;s genius was who he chose to arrange his comps: Colombier, Goraguer ect.

                            Just carry a copy of the lp under your arm every time you go there for a drink. If an old man spits wine at you and leaves in a huff...
