"25th ELEFANT RECORDS ANNIVERSARY" COLLECTION [Issue 018 of 025]

One of the most sought-after Singles from Elefant Records was that one that Mehdi Zannad released in 1998. Bob Stanley (SAINT ETIENNE) named it Single of the year, after a Split Single with STEREOLAB and before a Split with SAINT ETIENNE themselves. This release helped place FUGU among the names of reference for lovers of cult pop, and veteran collectors.

Because of all of this, and because of the recent appearance of his marvelous album as THE LAST DETAIL with Erin Moran of A GIRL CALLED EDDY, we wanted one of the last releases that we included in our collection of reissues in honor of Elefant Records’ 25th anniversary to be this Single, which we are releasing with all kinds of incredible extras. And, the Single has become a Mini-LP with 12 songs including, in addition to the ones that were originally on the famous Single (“F31”, “Interlude 3” and “F1”), we are adding the ones that were on the Split Single with STEREOLAB (“F30” and “F24 (Instrumental)”), named one of the 50 best Singles that year by Les Inrockuptibles, as well as the songs from the EP he released on Semantic in 1996: “F24 (Dipodomys)”, “F4 (Coypou)”, “F15 (Alactaga Sauteur)”, “Interlude 1”, “Interlude 2”, “F22 (Géorhyque De Zech)” and “F26 (Antéchinomys)”.

It’s a delicious journey through sixties sounds, psychedelic folk, precious arrangements, celestial harmonies, GORKY’S ZYGOTIC MYNCI, the most elegant strings, LEFT BANKE… It’s an absolute gem, and object of desire for the most serious collectors and lovers of camera pop. 10” white vinyl, limited and numbered, 300 copies.

Track Name: F31
I rely on things like
She’s coming over, coming over
She’s coming over
She’s coming over
Track Name: Interlude 3
Instrumental
Track Name: F1
It hurts every failure
That wounds makes me sing
By fact I won’t blame it
As long as you make me sing

So fine so selfish
That’s what I suppose
My words they sound childish
They’re my only purpose
Track Name: F30
I can write stories for I’m digging the worst I know
I don’t know
Taking the best by the hand
Catching the butts with the hand
Track Name: F24 (Instrumental)
Instrumental
Track Name: F4 (Coypou)
In the morning she sneezes
As she makes her up in her digs
Her coffee is cold, toasted bread is burned
And jam is sticking in her hands
She’s late

She’s the pearl of the year
She’s smooth and she’s precious
Pearl of the year
She waits for the hour
Pearl of the year

She hides while the kids are yelling
Pear shaped Pearl

Yes, tonight is the night
She can’t find a dress that fits her
She puts large trousers
Dad is outside in the car
He says she’s fine okay
Now she’ll

Be the pearl of the year
Two drinks and she’s over
Pearl of the year
She rolls in a corner
Pearl of the year

She smiles as she falls
She don’t care she is pearl
Track Name: F15 (Alactaga Sauteur)
It gives me life when you’re alone
I guess you’re sour
I miss it all if I am staying
Heart you want me away

Wet beneath the pleas where I should live
Time takes my breath instead of sheds

I’ll take your mouth when you are sad
When summer’s gone
What haunts you dear for you I’m staying
Heart you want me away

Wet beneath the pleas where I should live
Time takes my breath instead of sheds
Track Name: Interlude 1
Instrumental
Track Name: Interlude 2
Instrumental
Track Name: F24 (Dipodomys)
You can turn me out
At every glance you can see me
I will be around
Once I am yours
You can’t leave me
Track Name: F22 (Géorhyque De Zech)
Talking freely
About the birds and the bees
Breeze on the lake
Can you make

Two steps forward
Then your cheeks in the shade
And then backward
I fall in the water

I’ll take a picture
Of you laying on a bark
All of a sudden you fall apart
I try my luck
But in fact, you’re awake
Beyond expectation
You hit my face
Track Name: F26 (Antéchinomys)
Sentant délivrance
Sans
Qui résiste sent
Paraissant
Quatre cents ans
