[FRANÇAIS]
Les paroles des chansons de cet album sont tirées de commentaires bidon postés sur mon défunt blogue de chronique musicale « Monsieur Délire ». Blogspot, la plateforme qui hébergeait ce site, filtrait et éliminait ces « pourriels », mais non sans m’avoir avisé de leur ajout. Devant l’absurdité de ces textes clairement cannibalisés de sources multiples, j’ai choisi de sauvegarder les plus évocateurs.

Quand, au printemps 2015, j’ai commencé à travailler sur un cycle de compositions à partir d’improvisations et d’enregistrements de terrain divers, l’idée d’un album de chansons
à partir de ces pourriels s’est imposée, l’objectif étant de donner vie à une matière inerte, d’insuffler de l’émotion dans la platitude. S’est imposée aussi l’idée que cet album serait à mon image – c’est-à-dire très éclectique du point de vue stylistique – et qu’il suivrait quelques règles semi-contraignantes.

Spam Me est donc un recueil de chansons (sauf You Left Me and You Took All of My Hammill Records..., instrumentale), chaque chanson ayant pour paroles un pourriel (mais Osady Sciekowe en utilise deux et Spam Me regroupe les « signatures » des pourriels retenus pour le projet). Enfin, chaque morceau a pour base une improvisation (sauf Moncler Uomo, dont la première partie a été écrite à l’avance). Dans les notes qui suivent, les astérisques (*) identifient les instruments participant à l’improvisation initiale. Les courriels sont reproduits et interprétés tels quels, fautes et incongruités comprises.

[ENGLISH]
The lyrics for this album are all taken from fake comments posted on my ex-music blog Monsieur Délire. Blogspot, which hosted the blog, managed to filter and delete these spams, though not before these would trigger email notifications. These “messages” were so absurd, so obviously frankensteinified from multiple sources, that I decided to save the most evocative ones for later use.

When I started working on a cycle of compositions based on various improvisations and field recordings in the spring of 2015, these spams became the obvious choice for lyrics, the goal being to breathe life into inert matter, to bring emotion to platitudes. Eventually, I also decided that this album would also represent my eclectic tastes in music, and that it would abide to a set of semi-restrictive rules.

Therefore, Spam Me is a collection of songs (except for the instrumental You Left Me and You Took All of My Hammill Records...) where the lyrics for each song features one real-life spam message (though Osady Sciekowe uses two and Spam Me culls the tag lines of the spams retained for the project). Finally, each piece is based on a free improvisation (except for Moncler Uomo, whose first section was pre-written). The asterisks (*) in the track credits identify the instrumentation of the original improvisation. All spam emails are reproduced – and interpreted – as they appeared in my inbox, warts and all.
