The daughter of famed French singer Serge Gainsbourg, celebrated actress Charlotte released her first album at the age of 13, then waited 20 years before returning to the recording studio.
Jeremy Stacey says:
“This album was produced by Nigel Godrich, Radiohead’s producer, and recorded in Paris. I went over there a couple of times a month and stayed for a few days. Air were brought in to write the music. They were very relaxed sessions.”
“I had the snare that I’ve used on so many records. It looks like a Rogers Dynasonic, but the shell is an Eddie Ryan - very fat sounding drums. It got to the point where I was using this snare on so many different records that I started trying to use other ones, but people would say, ‘Have you got a fatter, lower snare?’“
“Nigel made a comment to me, ‘If you ever do another session for me, don’t bring any other drums. This is the kit for every session.’”
