Reelin’ In The Years 65: Ça Plane Pour Moi

I was never much into punk but I confess to a soft spot for Plastic Bertrand – mainly because he’s one of those famous Belgians there are supposed to be none of.

(Well he’s famous if you were around in the 70s.)

I was shocked on loading this video to discover the song was nothing to do with him; being both sung and composed by its producer Lou Deprijck.

    Confusing history, this song. The original original was by Elton Motello, an Englishman who went over to France and Belgium in the early seventies with a proto-punk band called “Bastard” (featuring a later member of the Damned) and who then stayed on when they split. Rather racier lyrics: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQlsfsypBi8

    This version was obviously never going to chart in the UK.

    Thanks Jim,
    I didn’t know any of this.
    My knowledge of the arcana of punk is almost zero.
