"The vinyl reissue of Ghedalia Tazartes' 5 Rimbaud 1 Verlaine (2006). This is a great tribute to the poetry of Rimbaud and Verlaine made by a favorite French sorcerer, who exceptionally abandoned his typical imaginary language to reinterpret six small poems in his own way, jumping from one musical genre to the other and happily letting them crunch together in a childish, enthusiastic play.
Recorded in Paris in his flat around the same time he recorded the wonderful Hystérie Off Music (2007) and previously available in an almost unnoticed mini CD edition published by the French label Jardin au Fou. Available here in a remastered vinyl version - with an excellent 45 rpm cut made by SST in Frankfurt."-Holiday Records

• Show Bio for Ghedalia Tazartes
Ghédalia Tazartès was born 1947 in Paris
"French cult artist Ghédalia Tazartès is an uncompromising character who defies categorization. He recorded alone a dozen of albums, calling his way of working "Impromuz" for lack of a better term. Before the years 2000s, his public appearances remained exceptional events.
Ghédalia Tazartès' music has always been a mystery. It switches from musique concrète to - existing or invented - ethnic music, from poetry to noise, or from loops and collages to sad and extremely beautiful tunes in a second, but it constantly is in flux and coherent.
In 2004, Ghedalia finally decided to do live performances again. He first worked with other musicians (Les Reines d'Angleterre, David Fenech & Jac Berrocal, Norscq & Black Sifichi, Nicolas Lelièvre) and is now a solo performing artist (although his very young son sometimes joins him on stage!).
Since 2009 Tazartes played many shows across Europe. After performing a cinemix to the strange "Haxan" film in 2008, he presented in February 2013 a new solo show at CTM in Berlin Festival to a packed HAU2. The new show is based around the music of Tazartes' lattest album 'Coda Lunga.' Says Tazartes: 'I thought I had only played for 5 minutes in Berlin... then I realised I had been going on for more than one hour!'"-Julie Tippex Website (http://julietippex.com/roster/ghedalia-tazartes/)
