Liminanas

26/08/2012

If Serge Gainsbourg had written songs with The Velvet Underground, it might have sounded like The Liminanas. Somebody else wrote that, but it’s a great way to describe the sultry, fuzz-drenched basement-sound of the trio from Perpignan. Their second album Crystal Anis is out, and the second you hear the bass in Ballade pour Clive, you’ll get the Gainsbourg-reference. This is music to listen to with darkdarkdark-shades on, while Super8-porn is being shown on the screen in the humid cellar, the leather-clad crowd is getting anxious yet you’re keeping it cool. You might dance. Horizontally or vertical, maybe both. Gimme another shot, barkeep!

FS Rerun: L’autre Brigitte

05/09/2010

Because of the 5th anniversary of this blog, we will re-run a few legendary postings:

The French adult cinema of the 70s was about carnal excess as well as about hedonism, politics, and libertinage. For a brief moment, especially in the key year 1978, movies like Perversion d’une jeune mariée or Je suis à prendre transcended smut and sleaze into an art form – particularly due to the spellbinding presence of the young Brigitte Lahaie who managed to fill even the lewdest scenes with a kind of radiant innocence.

Her only single, Caresse Tendresse, recorded in 1987 for the Clever label, regrettably doesn’t emanate quite the same sensual poetry and magic – Brigitte’s voice clearly wasn’t her strongest physical asset, and the song itself sounds like a dancefloor collaboration between the „Vu de l’extérieur“ Gainsbourg and a sedated church organist. So what? As for Brigitte, it was a labor of love anyway.

Bonus: The title track from the 1980 Lahaie movie „Secrets d’adolescentes“ (a.k.a. „Le Porno esperienze di Luca e Fanny“), a voluptuous soundscape by the great Roberto Pregadio that was also used in Franco Prosperi’s nunploitation shocker „La Settima Donna“. Ethereal moaning not by Brigitte, but by the similarly magnificent Edda Dell’Orso, better known for her teamworks with Ennio Morricone – the queen of wordless erotic vocals of Italian cinema.
