By Gérard Guégan
Juste après sixty eight, l. a. révolution parut soudainement à portée de major. Sur los angeles manière d'y parvenir, chacun avait sa théorie, mais, dans los angeles pratique, tous voulaient vivre sans temps morts. Plus query de changer le monde sans se changer soi-même. Ni de croupir derrière los angeles vitre en attendant les lendemains qui chantent. Dès lors que ça craquait partout, plus rien n'était most unlikely. C'est dans ce climat d'exaltation que Gérard Guégan, chômeur porté sur le romanesque, et Gérard Lebovici, riche imprésario rêvant de damer le pion à Gallimard, envisagèrent de créer avec les variations Champ Libre le cheval de Troie d'où surgiraient les nouvelles âmes sensibles, seules capables d'incendier le Vieux Monde. Il s'agissait ni plus ni moins de produire des livres qui, en plus de refléter le fond de l'air, attenteraient, dans los angeles forme que leur imaginerait Alain Le Saux, au goût dominant. Cité Champagne n'est donc pas un de ces essais historiques, où le vivant embaumé suinte l'ennui, mais une sorte de traversée du miroir ressuscitant, avec allégresse, un passé que ni los angeles mort ni l. a. trahison n'avaient encore réduit en cendres. Un passé où Archie Shepp, Jim Morrison, Reiser,
George Romero, Janis Joplin faisaient reason commune avec le Black energy, les 343 avorteuses, les Weathermen, le Fhar. Un passé que les variations Champ Libre incarnèrent au plus près de los angeles chair.
Cité Champagne sera suivi de forty, rue de los angeles Montagne Sainte-Geneviève (1972-1974).
