The new Stereo-album is called Paris-Berlin and its
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 lolitas
"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!
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.
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 90s; 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
Revolutionary yours, see you in October.
