Fantaisie Militaire (Military Fantasy) was Alain Bashung's last album of the '90s; it was also his most popular both critically and commercially. He received numerous awards for it, including album of the year and video of the year for the single "La Nuit de Mens" (At Night I Lie). Bashung surrounded himself with a slew of co-writers and musicians for the album, including Édith Fambuena and Jean-Louis Pierot of Les Valentins, Rodolphe Burger of Kat Onoma, Joseph Racaille, and Portishead guitarist Adrian Utley.
