Biography

Bernard Fèvre is a self-taught french composer, now over 60 years old.

In his early life, his day job was in precision mechanics; on saturday nights he played piano in a R’ n B’ band, Frankie Presle and the G.men. He then spent ten years as part of Les Francs Garçons, a singing group in the “Don Camillo” night-club in Paris. He now works for a French radio station, providing its ‘sound environment’.

His first solo record is “The Strange World of Bernard Fèvre”, followed some months after by “Black Devil Disco Club 78” which had a new and pioneering electronic sound. The records met with limited success and Bernard Fèvre remained in obscurity for more than twenty years. He released at least 3 albums of electronic library music during the 70s.

In 1999, The Chemical Brothers used a large sample from Fèvre’s 1975 piece Earth Message in their record “Got Glint?”.

In 2006, Bernard Fèvre returned to recording, writing and releasing music as Black Devil Disco Club.
