SEBASTIEN TELLIER
L'ENFANCE D'UN CHIEN
UNE VIE DE PAPA
L'INCROYABLE VERITE
record makers, 2001
first recording launched on RECORD MAKERS, electronic pop superduo AIR's own label, L'INCROYABLE VERITE was marketed as some innovative postmodern musical artefact: no drums, some kazoo and obsessive piano playing. hum, which sounded rather frightening. on the sleeve art, sebastien's beardie-dandy looks weren't helping much in terms of seduction and then there was so much hype around, i totally blacked it out.
however, a few months later the album landed home as a gift and with such titles as "l'enfance d'un chien" (a dog's childhood) or "a daddy's life" (une vie de papa), it couldn't be that bad. fact is, some true magic and poetic moments are to be found here.
later on, one of his tracks, "fantino" even found its way to the "Lost in translation" soundtrack; how about that as hype goes by?
in 2004, seb's 2nd opus POLITICS raised tacky cover art at even higher stakes (in a good way) and a classic track found its way in all the major league DJ bags worldwide: LA RITOURNELLE.

before france burns down (it's about time, baby), grab your own copies of these weird gems
at your favorite music dealers.

hi beathunters!
I greatly enjoy and appreciate all your work. You cover music I mostly haven't heard about in all my life, and that's how it should be, i guess.
Anyways, i wanted to tell you that the sebastien talliers tracks are both a little messed up, with clicks and cuts here and there - and i guess that's places where they don't belong! ;-) Could you please check that? Thx!!
Nice greetings from Austria!

so i guess it's time to get rid of them anyway.
hope it aroused your curiosity for seb tellier's work

I'm afraid Mon Tellier provided me with one of the worst experiences I have had at a gig. He supporting Air and was dreadful and self indulgent, It included a woman screaming and falling the the fall during one 'song'. I've never quite recovered.
