TamTam Books tribute to Brigitte Fontaine

Brigitte Fontaine, who is now an ageless 73, is a remarkable singer, songwriter, jazz artist, figure in the electronica movement, as well as a novelist, poet, and playwright.   To me she's a combination of performance artist, art-song-pop singer, and genius.  She has worked with Sonic Youth, Stereolab, The Art Ensemble of Chicago, Grace Jones, Jacques Higelin and the great arranger and songwriter Jean-Claude Vannnier.  Here are some of her highlights.  Oh, and she started off doing songs by Boris Vian!
