Smoking Kills

Jaco - Jacno (1979)

Geometry obsessed, French synthpop. Jacno was the musical moniker of Denis Quillard, a founding member of the Stinky Toys. He served as a huge fashion influence to Paul Banks, as well as pursuing a successful musical career both as a solo artist and as one half of Elli et Jacno. Quillard took his stage name from the graphic artist who designed the Gauloises logo, a brand of cigarettes in France. In 2009, Quillard died of cancer. Coincidence? I'll let you be the judge.
