Live Phonoboy, silver and neon


I saw and definitely heard Phonoboy live yesterday at the Atomic Cafe in Munich, Germany. Look at the photo and picture a German band singing in French, wearing Raumpatrouille inspired clothing and getting an entire room full of groovy people hopping. They have one song on Radio Oh la la, which is probably not fair, but since they are part of the exceptional modern bands featured, it’s a good thing. And DJing the night was no one other than resident DJ Martin Hemmel.

Web radio gets a huge refill


Ooooh does it ever feel good to chill in the airplane lounge! Miss, some drinks, it’s a long flight! Just in time for the weekend, you can enjoy a few extra hours of music on Radio Oh la la! You may notice some Karo and Claire Lepage, a dash of Gilbert Bécaud and Nancy Holloway, and then a serious portion of rock and roll bands.

Podcast No. 26 – Filles Fragiles and old hipsters

Filles Fragiles

The Chick Habit party on 24 November was also the launch of the new CD Filles Fragiles, compiled by Guuzbourg over at Filles Sourires after much hard work. Two songs are featured in Podcast No. 26: a duet by Salvatore Adamo & Olivia Ruiz and another by Serge Gainsbourg & Jane Birkin. As well, in the hipster category, the oh so dreamy young Jacques Dutronc and a more mature yet charming Gilbert Bécaud. Sandwiched in between are the very mellow Françoise Hardy and the very uppity Sylvie Vartan.

Salvatore Adamo & Olivia Ruiz – Ce George(s)
Jacques Dutronc – Le responsable
Gilbert Bécaud – L’orange
Françoise Hardy – Comment te dire adieu ?
Sylvie Vartan – M’amuser
Serge Gainsbourg & Jane Birkin – La chanson de slogan
