… and the bright side

People like me don’t leave France because of taxes. We leave France because the moderns lost. Because Finkelkraut won. The dark side of France… God save the Queen, and fuck Finkelkraut!

On the dark side…

This very dark vision is a part of the testimony of my generation. Boomers used to say we were cynical, that we were too realistic, not enough idealists, and bla bla bla, and bla bla bla… We were only 15 and those of us who were lucide enough to understand what was going on in the world knew that all those dreams of “socialism” and “revolutions” were vain.

The best song of the 1980’s. Just that…

New Order and The Cure wrote for the crowd of their time, and to tell the truth, the result was spendid for New Order. But with this song, The Bunnymen went farther, far farther. They just didn’t know they were recording for the 90’s and the 2000’s. In this song, there is Nirvana, there is Oasis, with a much, much better style. Maturity, I said.

Henry 헨리 : Fantastic (7/2014 – KPop)

Recently, KPop is developping a kind of “rap style” trend which I find extremely boring. Hopefully, we can sometimes hear some good pop songs, easy to hear, easy to remember, easy to sing, the kind of song you will remember at the supermarket while shopping, and it is just “Fantastic”.
Henry is Chineese, he was a member of Super Junior.

Sur une musique de Guy Ropartz…

1985, Grace Jones, Slave to the Rhythm

In 1985, I reached my 20th year. After years of “rock and roll”, I finally cooled down, but I entered another moment in my life. Didier Lestrade talked about this many times and it is a subject which is not so frequently told. I stopped having sex for almost a year and a half. Not completly, but almost. HIV was a fear in my generation’s mind like no one can understand nowadays...

1984, The Smiths, What difference does it make ?

1983/84 was a turning point. I started living alone in Paris the previous in year in september and very quickly I drawn into the abyss of the University. Students were boring, all from middle/upper middle class in a kind of average Telerama culture. I hated that. Instead of studying, I invested my time into concerts, my radio program, and booze, and pot, and acids… I was 18 after all. Sex...

Mon grand amour : Antonio Vivaldi

Antonio Vivaldi, Concerto per 2 violino la-minor RV523, orchestra Il Pomo d’Oro. Riccardo Minasi and Dmitry Sinkovsky, (violino) Disques Naives 2013 Violent comme il faut, tendre quand c’est nécessaire, passionné toujours mais si souvent réservé aussi, Vivaldi m’accompagne depuis l’enfance, il ne m’a jamais quitté même quand je lui étais infidèle. Il a su se métamorphoser au fil des ans...
