"Graduate in Fine Arts, Jean-Emmanuel Deluxe quickly realised that pop culture offered a wider field of investigation than a bloodless art world where being conventional is required of everyone. A specialist in pop culture, J-E Deluxe is also an author (check his Yéyé girls of 60’s French Pop published by Feral House) and an artist. Journalist for Shindig, Acid Beans, Rock and Folk, Citizen K, Transfuge, Schnock and many other magazines, he knows that one can't be both judge and jury, which is why he prefers to promote the artists he likes rather than criticize the ones he doesn't. He also runs the Martyrs du Pop label" - Martyrs Of Pop - "which made a name with April March, Jacques Duvall and Jay Alansky. At the start of the 21st century he recorded a" Jean-Emmanuel Deluxe And Alexander Faem - Tribute To Alain Delon And Jean-Pierre Melville "with his long-time friend Alexandre Faem, with such guests as St. Etienne, Bertrand Burgalat, Jacno, Helena Noguerra, X-Ray Pop and Ariel Wizman. Sometimes time flies faster than we wish and it has taken almost two decades for M. Deluxe to bounce back. In the end, if you believe Robert Wyatt, Bid (Monochrome Set) and others, our pop activist was right to return!" Source: http://lionproductions.org/
