FACT Focus 1: Serge Gainsbourg

FACT Focus is a brand new mix series.

Regular FACT readers may have noticed that occasionally, to accompany a large feature or list, the author has provided a mix summarizing the article in handy-to-absorb MP3 format. Well, we’ve decided to flesh this out into a series.

Episodes of FACT Focus will, umm, focus on a specific artist, label, scene or sound. The mixes won’t be weekly, but they’ll always go the extra mile in terms of highlighting hidden classics and mapping-out specific eras or sounds.

This week’s inaugural mix comes from our NYC-based contributor Mikey IQ Jones, who put together the exhaustive Beginner’s Guide to Serge Gainsbourg. He’s gone through his enviable collection of dusty 7″s and well-worn LPs to come up with a perfect porthole into the bizarre career of one of the 20th century’s most intriguing musical figures.
