The French singer Mano Solo goes on his way

French singer Mano Solo, born Emmanuel Cabut at Châlons-sur-Marne in April 24, 1963, died this Sunday, January 10, 2010 in Paris.

Mano Solo :
a prolific and dark work


Son of the drawer Cabu, the committed singer Mano Solo, AIDS patient, gives us a prolific and dark work where his deep voice with accents from the suburbs of Paris sings strong and poetic lyrics about love (Allez viens), drugs (Au creux de ton bras), loneliness (Chacun sa peine, Je marche seul), the city of Paris (Allo Paris) to punk accents of the album of Frères Misère (1996).

After a dozen albums including the latest one Rentrer au port (2009), Mano Solo goes so definitely on his way.

Depuis quelques temps je le sens
Un son nouveau courir sous ma peau
Qui accompagne les fous battements de mon coeur
Sourdement sourdement ça cogne là-dedans
Et de loin en loin ça se rapproche une marée de triples croches
Qui martèlent les clous de ma nouvelle maison
Au rythme d’un tout qui m’invite à la passion

Et je taille ma route plus rien ne me dégoutte
Poussé par mon instinct je trace ma vie
A grands coups de fusain.
— Mano Solo, Je taille ma route (Dehors, 2000)
