clothilde - mini show (1967).


from her running and gasping at the start right through to the end where she is dressed up and putting on a mans voice - this is extraordinary! clothilde - one of the ultimate in ye-ye dolls shows what star quality she had- a great face, amazing eyes, a wicked orange jumpsuit and killer tunes! enjoy this!

introducing cecily bertrand

SYLVIE VARTAN - UNE FEUILLE D'OR

"i shall nver forget an uncomfortable dinner with the singer sylvie vartan who spent the entire evening in a terrible sulk. typically, (salvador) dali couldn't remember her name and addressed her as cecily bertrand. his trick was to keep the general gist of a name, while at the same time changing it completely."

the name's lonnberg.....anne lonnberg

can anyone help me locate any songs by bond girl and singer anne lonnberg? there are definitely 4 singles from 71-76, an album from 69, and this song on youtube from 2008. the most recent song is folky and it would be really good to hear some of her earlier stuff. can anyone help?!

heroin(e)

how i love her 'chelsea girls' album - it's near perfect. it also reminds me of living in london, being obsessed with warhol and the factory, and getting wasted with friends, then spraying things silver and dressing up to make mini movies- all of us wearing black turtle necks. we videod everything - and i mean everything! 
happy days!

illuminated

ohmygod i am currently so in love with this song. swedish singer frida sundemo has released 2 songs (indigo and snow) - both are excellent. but i am also hugely enamoured with this acoustic version of 'indigo'.

the equally amazing original version:
