#508 Fun King Nero – Audrey Tautou (Gave Me The Blues)

Around the time that Amelie came out, all the way back in 2001, I fell in love with Audrey Tautou. I wasn’t alone. Among the others to fall under her spell was Fun King Nero. We’re not sure if the Liverpudlian moved to Paris in the specific hopes of bumping into Audrey somewhere around Montmartre, or perhaps skimming stones on the Canal St Martin, but the move has inevitably given a French flavour to his music. The track kicks off his new six-track mini-album, which was released this week.
