The story behind ‘Famous’

Tristan Abgrall walks in on Jack playing around with the sardonic ‘Famous’ vocal one day in a Paris studio. He immediately comes up with a riff for it.

Sometime later Jack forms The Ex-men with Matt Green.

Matt rearranges ‘Famous’, which appears on the self-released Ex-men debut, A life of love. On hearing the album Flowers founder Stephen McKee is determined that ‘Famous’ will be the first Ex-men release on Flowers.

Flowers producer Albert K (Nevada Base) creates a new version (‘single’) featuring a backing vocal from Karine Betou and Albert K’s searing analogue synth.

The Famous ep also contains new versions from Paris-based producers Julien Majorel (‘Lounge’ mix) and Adam Zanders (‘Rich bums’ mix), as well as the original LoL album version.

Criminally ignored by radio, possibly due to repeated swearing, drug & sexual references, or because the radio plugger we hired was utterly useless.
