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.

“Enough to make you wonder if this is some sort of secretive Jarvis Cocker project… imagine Daft Punk remixed by The Fuck Buttons.”

“Having listened to around ten seconds of ‘Famous’ I already want to push my keyboard off the desk, and jump up and dance! Jam packed with energy, funky electro and the urge to join in – ‘Famous’ is a very, very interesting album. A mix of Klaxons, Pet Shop Boys, Sexy Sushi and a splash of Hadouken and you have something so cool, even a penguin would say ‘F**k its cold in here!’ “
