GHST OF THE WATER / LES HUITRES A CANALE
After the release of last year’s FERAROCK most played
“When Will The Flies In Deauville Drop” ,
Le Villejuif Underground decided to do absolutely nothing for a year, and took an early retirement.
A 20-date tour of Europe was cancelled the day before!
Their separation was announced on TV5 Monde and to
one confused journalist from Liberation.
A few months later, a song for a world renowned fashion label wasn’t completed in time
for the catwalk and instead members got sloppy drunk, and fought in the streets of Paris
whilst their singer was lost somewhere in the Sahara desert with passport issues.
Opportunities lost! Bridges burnt! All dreams destroyed!
Many thought they would never come back,
others didn’t even notice, but whether you like it or not
LE VILLEJUIF UNDERGROUND are back, with a 2-song single
out on the only home that will have them, Born Bad Records
LISTENERS: THIS IS VILLEJUIF IN SURROUND SOUND HIGH DEFINITION!
“Ghost Of The Water” , is a hallucination of alcoholism, from different shaky view points
and sounds like a sci-fi space/opera Lee Hazlewood western
if soundtracked by a collaboration between The UV Race/The Strokes 2001: Space Odyssey
“Les Huitres a Cancale”, is a Kenneth Koch-like animal call to
stalkers, and strangers out there on the lose in the “moi aussi” generation
and rolls like an ageing Gainsbourg slow dancing on codeine,
a druggy ballad for the tranquillised.
And just when you thought the world of music had ended,
Le Villejuif Underground is BACK from retirement!
