Bad Reputation CD out June 8thJune 02, 2010
The much-awaited Bad Reputation full-length album comes out June 8th on Barbes Records in New York and world(web)wide. It is the culmination of two years of hard work by Pierre de gaillande and scores of talented musicians and artists. You can buy yours now from the VERMILLION MUSIC WEBSITE.
If you are in the New York area on June 12th, come to the CD release show at The Bell House in Brooklyn and help celebrate the release of this ambitious and supremely entertaining album. Its 13 tracks are peopled with jailbait princesses, phonograph pornographers, anarchists, atheists, amputees, and holy womanizers out to save the unlovable. The whole band will be on stage to play the repertoire they've been honing this past year at shows throughout New York, and a few surprise guests will lend their gifts to the festivities. If you've been wondering what all the hubbub is about Bad Reputation and this character called Georges Brassens, June 12th is the night to find out!
The release of Bad Reputation has garnered a lot of recent press interest, and there are scores of great interviews in the pipeline in the next two weeks. Pierre will be interviewed by Marco Werman for PRI's The World, Scott Simon for NPR's Weekend Edition, as well as Alison Rosen's video blog on Ustream TV. And look for upcoming interviews in France-Amerique, French-Morning, Lucid Culture, and others.

Pierre has been invited to participate in the Semaine Integrale Paris, a week-long celebration of Brassens, during which the singer's discography is performed from start to finish, in its entirety, by over 30 musicians from all over the world. Check HERE for details and come see us in Paris!
Bad Reputation will also play at FIAF on 60th Street to celebrate Bastille Day (and the World Cup Finals) on Sunday July 11th. Vive la France!
