one type of serendipity


This morning on waking up I listened to Placebo. Then I typed in the band's name to my online jukebox then came a song in French that I think I like. Dem was online, so I went 'hey, I'm listening online to Noir Desir, it's kind of cool.'

'That's the band. Me and A both have a CD of that band.'

So, after about 3 months, I bumped into the band again, still immediately know that I like it. Marvellous feeling.

'Des visages, des figures' is a fantastic album you should get it. What song were you listening to? 'Le vent nous portera' is an amazing track and well worth listening to (many times).

I was listening to 'Des Armes'...

Ah. I really like Bertrand Cantat's voice on that track. It is a short song, but really nice. You should really listen to 'Le vent nous portera', that has to be the highlight of the album, although the whole album is great.

i read that Bertrand Contat murdered someone??
C'est noir....

I've heard 'Le vent nous portera' online this afternoon, yes it's very good. Andy I reckon you must have been listening to that album now, while I wait for mine to get sent here...

I have been listening to 'Des visages, des figures' and '666.667 Club' (the previous album) all afternoon. They are one of my favourite bands.

Bertrand Cantat killed his girlfriend, actress Marie Trintignant, during an argument they were having. He is currently in prison.

I also heard a couple of songs by a French band called 'Indochine'. (A song's called 'dunkerque' if anyone wants to know. Forgot the name of the other one.) I like the way drums are used in those songs. You guys might not like them because they're a bit loud.
