SONG OF THE DAY Michel Magne – Brigade Anti – Gangs

Brigade Anti – Gangs is the opening (and title track) for the 1966 French-Italian film directed by Bernard Borderie.  The accompanying soundtrack was created by a French film and experimental music composer, Michel Magne, whose extensive repertoire stretched over nearly two decades.

Best knonw for his scores for the Fantômas films: Fantômas (1964), Fantômas se déchaîne (1965) and Fantômas contre Scotland Yard (1967), he worked from his own studio, Michel Magne Studio – which was built inside the the mythic “Château d’Hérouville”  This he purchased in 1962 and subsequently converted it into a residential recording studio in 1969, known as Studio d’enregistrement Michel Magne, which through the 1970s was used by a series of artists such as Elton John (at his Honky Château), Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Jethro Tull, Cat Stevens, and the Bee Gees among many others.

Brigade Anti – Gangs has a classic sound to it and it makes me want to check out the whole movie.  It’s big, bold, dramatic and full of relentless funky undertones! Check it out above.
