Charlotte Gainsbourg: I like being pushed, it’s something that makes me alive (Top Generation)

Interview by Jeremy Allan by Topman Generation, February 2012 

The IRM Tour
« I wanted it to be more than just a live album, I wanted to pick the live tracks that I was the most proud of and have a DVD because the images of the tour were important for me and it was part of the story. It was my first tour and I started on the West coast and then the East coast, The US and then came to Europe and in Japan. So it was a lovely experience.
I had never imagined an audience and the pleasure people could get so seeing that was a real surprise. I wanted to embrace that a little bit with the title of the album ».

All The Rain
There are four tracks that I did with Beck: one of them « All The Rain » we have done and nearly finished for IRM. I was really frustrated not to be able to put it on the album but it wasn’t finished so I was happy to be able to release it now.

My father was shy, very shy. In French we have a great word, I haven’t found the translation in English, you say « pudique« , and so he was very much that way.

I like being pushed, it’s something that makes me alive, so yeah I like all those challenges. That was the biggest revelation for me during that tour

Je tweet, je blog, je tumblr, je facebook, je Google+ sur Charlotte et Serge Gainsbourg. Je me souviens être tombée sous le charme de Charlotte dans l’Effrontée, de fil en aiguille, j’ai ensuite développé une passion pour la musique de Serge. Qui j’aime le plus des deux ? Je ne saurais dire.
