Je t’aime

Longtime FOFS (Friend of Filles Sourires) Roger Grund send me a rework of the ole’ Je t’aime…moi non plus, mixed with some klezmer-clarinet. It could be the basis of a ‘sick love song’, as Roger puts it. ‘I will consider to add any vocalist’, he adds. And: ‘Particle was compiled in search of the definitive rhythm guitar and is dedicated to the magik of Arthur Greenslade, Serge Gainsbourg, Michel Houellebecq and the now stagnant Circus Contraption.’
So there. Work in progress. Let’s see what happens next.

Re-up of the Gainsbourg-mix I made earlier, because on March 2 we’ll remember Serge’s passing, 20 years ago.  That said, I guess I see y’all this Wednesday in Club Bitterzoet in Amsterdam for the Gitanes & Jazz-soirée? Or maybe you’ll go to Ruimte X in Tilburg on March 5 (I won’t be there), or Petrol in Antwerp on March 12 (I’m there, oh boy, I’m there)?
