ARESKI / BRIGITTE FONTAINE

JE NE CONNAIS PAS CET HOMME

SUPERIOR VIADUCT


Format: LP
Cata No: SV044
Barcode: 857176003447
Following their groundbreaking collaboration with the Art
Ensemble of Chicago, Comme à la Radio, Areski and Brigitte
Fontaine began recording almost exclusively together
as a duo. Originally released in 1973, Je Ne Connais Pas
Cet Homme is their first record billed under both names.
Deeply rooted in North African and European folk
traditions, the album features evocative vignettes with
breezy vocals and minimal accompaniment of classical
guitar, strings and woodwinds.
As always, there is a mercurial quality to their lyrics.
The title track (translated as “I Do Not Know This Man”)
suggests at once Apostle Peter’s denial and a poetic acknowledgement.
On “C’est Normal” Fontaine playfully
questions the status quo while Areski offers satirical answers.
What makes Je Ne Connais Pas Cet Homme one of
their best-loved albums, though, is its remarkable sense of
intimacy—as if Areski and Fontaine beckon listeners into
their strange and beautiful world.
This first-time domestic release continues Superior Viaduct’s
reissue campaign of Fontaine’s classic ’70s catalog.
