Tonight I thought I’d pass along a couple of interesting tracks from a Quebecois garage band, Montreal’s legendary The Haunted. Best known for their Nuggets-approved “125”, which happened to be in English, they also did some interesting coversen Francais, and I thought I’d pass them along.
First up is a reworking of the Music Machine’s brutal “Talk Talk”, which they retitled “Pourquoi” (“Why”?).
But the one that I really like is “Vapeur Mauve”, which contains the immortal line, “Pardon, que j’embrasse le ciel.”
Vive le roche!
