Ten years after its first release (Warner, 2006, CD), the final studio album from cult french artist Jacno comes back with a double LP collector edition.

Most known as the composer of cult-synth track Rectangle (1980), Jacno had a long, eventful life : he formed the first french punk band with Elli & Jacno, then produced the 80's french avant-garde (Lio, Etienne Daho, Mathematiques Modernes) and finally started his own solo carreer like a perfect crossover between David Bowie (the look), Bryan Ferry (the style) and Serge Gainsbourg (the glamorous way of smoking), both in equal measure.

Initially released in Paris in 2006,"Tant de Temps" is the seventh and last studio album from Jacno, sadly dead three years later.

Back from the grave with this double LP collection version, "Tant de temps" can be heard as glam covered by a french vampire loving cigarettes, drinks and debauchery (french habits, let's say).

With his single manifesto Le Sport (« sport is shit »), he quotes Winston Churchill (« my secret to be healthy ? No sport, ever ») and as The Quietus is saying about that album, « we live in an imperfect world, because in a perfect one, this song would be no.1 for a decade in all of the world's countries ».

With friends aside (Etienne Daho, Stereo Total or Thomas Dutronc, son of Jacques) as guests, "Tant de Temps" sounds like the final heritage of dandiest frenchman of the past twenty years.

Now, that's for your pleasure.
