Holding On, Holding Out


These songs were recorded up in Goshen, VT over two different sessions. Co-produced by Oliver Hill and Color Study, we set out to do what we always do — record meaningful songs in a textured and beautiful way — but this time with new permission to break from self-imposed limitations of yesteryear and we used more than the four instruments we got. We were excited by the feel of electronic percussion and synthesizers for these songs, and we think the electronic thing really augments what we’ve always done.

Serge Gainsbourg: A Fistful of Gitanes


Buy: Amazon

United For Opportunity is proud to release, for the first-time on ebook, a New Expanded Edition of Serge Gainsbourg: A Fistful of Gitanes by Sylvie Simmons, the award-winning rock writer and the New York Times Best-selling author of I’m Your Man: The Life of Leonard Cohen. Originally published in 2001, long out of print and never until now available digitally, A Fistful of Gitanes was the first biography in English to capture Gainsbourg in all his gleeful outrageousness and contradictions, and counted Gainsbourg’s longtime partner Jane Birkin and legendary novelist JG Ballard among its avid fans.

Simmons’s work will stand as the definitive take on a dizzying genius. This new edition, which includes an expanded discography, will be available digitally in English, Spanish, Portuguese, German, and Japanese is available exclusively through here.
