Histoire de Melody Vannier
To mark the first ever release of Serge Gainsbourg and Jean-Claude Vannier’s lost soundtrack to Les Chemins De Katmandou, which is also the label’s 100th release, Finders Keepers has shared an exclusive mix with us.
Finders Keepers Records “presents this only official upload of the rare cassette mix-tape Histoire De Melody Vannier mixed by Andy Votel in 2006 (using all original vintage Vannier vinyl) for the occasion of the first ever live performance of Histoire De Melody Nelson / L’Enfant Assassin Des Mouches at the Barbican Centre in London,” explains FKR.
Previously believed to have been completed destroyed in a studio fire, Les Chemins De Katmandou’s master tapes were recently found by Jean-Claude Vannier, in a suitcase owned by friend and copyist Daniel Marechal, following his death.
