Club Contact

The new MP3 blog from London's club Contact. The idea is to allow people to hear new music they wouldn't have otherwise found but, if anyone has any copyright issues with a particular song, i'll take the link down. Songs are only available for a limited amount of time.

I've mentioned my love of April March, California's Ye-Ye queen, a number of times in the past so i'm delighted to see that she's experiencing an upturn in interest in the wake of Quentin Tarantino's decision to use Chick Habit, her 1994 cover of France Gall's classic Laisse Tomber Les Filles, as the title music for Death Proof. Apparently, a follow-up to her excellent Triggers has been finished for a while but there has been trouble finding a suitable label to release it on - as any number of people from Stealers Wheel to Nancy Sinatra will tell you, having Tarantino's backing can hardly hurt. Coral Bracelet and Parisville give a hint as to what we might be missing.

Here's a rather adorable video of France doing the original:

    The video's lovely but the cover's extremely horrid, isn't it? More pretty smiling ladies of the olden days, please...
