Before the wave, at the turn of the Eighties. Etienne Daho was still a young man from Rennes, leading an almost ordinary life. A rock’n’roll enfant terrible, half an angel, half a punk, trying everything he can to organize a Stinky Toys concert in his town. The show led to months of debt, but Daho bonded with the legendary duo Elli and Jacno. A couple of years later, Jacno himself produced his album Mythomane. It was the end of an underground scene he had only briefly tasted. Including timely photographs by Pierre René-Worms and by close relations of the singer, as well as flyers, posters, newspaper cuttings, notebooks, and a text by Sylvie Coma, the book gives a glimpse on the singer’s intimate life during a critical period of his career. It also captures a snapshot in time: the era of the jeunes gens modernes, the “modern young things” of French new wave and post-punk.
