VIVE LA REVOLUTION, by Youri Margarine (06/08/07)

Wunderschön! The new Stereo-album is called Paris-Berlin and it’s a revolution! After the very synthetic Musique Automatique and the chansons d'A of Do the Bambi, the duet returns to the lo-fi and guitar sound, almost recalling Les Lolitas or tracks like "Lunatique" on the Monokini album. As Francoise said in "the love to 3", the sex it is "communist". Bring out your khaki tops, the new album speaks about revolution...sexual revolution, Naturlich. On the menu: free love, hustlers and lolita’s everywhere.
"Baby Revolution" will be the small red book of the album, since the text is signed Bruce LaBruce, cult queer-porn director based in Toronto, and that the vocals are ensured by Linda She-Wolf, singer of the gender-engaged Rhythm King and her friends, and of Eric D.Clark, DJ of the berlino-queer after party "Manyc Monday". The creme of the gender-revolution, therefore!

The first single would be "Ich bin der Stricherjunge" (with a very Fassbinder-like video) - inspired apparently enough of Hustler White, so scandalous, by the same Bruce LaBruce- on a music of Khan, with which Francoise had sung.
Still revolutionary with a vibrating homage of Francoise to Patty Hearst, American college-girl of the 70's turned into a terrorist gangster. As for the covers, Herr Gainsbourg ist de rigueur. Brezel is definitely fan of the album Mauvaises Nouvelles Des Etoiles since after revisiting the title track in his solo album, the leitmotiv is this time "(Relax Baby) Be Cool". Sharper, the cover of "Mehr Licht", by Lem a.k.a Nicolas Ekla, former Ming and Brochettes member, headlights groups of the electro-Belgian scene of the 90’s; and, sehr punk, the polyglot cover of “Modern Musik” by Hermanns Orgie, German punk group of the end of the 7O' S, that some madmen try to rehabilitate. On the barricades, faithful San Reimo and Angie Reed, always ready to bawl. As to me, I have my streamer: "Ta voix au téléphone", fav track, next single and remixes!!!
Revolutionary yours, see you in October.
Youri Margarine
