 Last post may of not made as much  as sense as I hoped -(unless you're french that is)but it's good sense to wear shades right now (still too hot here in Blighty...not very Autumnal )

"She Lives in a Time of Her Own"-Post 16

They could of left  watermark at bottom .. never understood the point of obscuring a image with words.

From hand painted stamp from 1930's.. although original black & white portraits better (but a rubbish size to post here)

Been watching lots of  old flicks on youtube ... heres a gem from 1937 -(english translators nuts dictates dada so worth watching just to see Danielle Darrieux's beauty style and performance as Lydia ..I envy you if you're fluent in  French.


Santa has the Blues! Some un-seasonal French New Wave .. a film about dufflecoats -but Martine's rocks the most... at least the  translator works properly on this one.


What can I say? Berets . big shiny coats and frenchieness just go together so well Michelle Morgan stills from "Le Quai des Brunes" from 1939 which translates as "Port of Sorrows" here's a trailer Interview about that movie subtitls hopefully work-some lovely images . Nice dress. Couldn't feature Port of Sorrow" but did  find this windswept epic  "Stormy Waters" also starring Madeline Renaud...subtitles provide more surrealist comedy -guess I'll have to watch this for its filmaking rather than the dialouge ...

You must excuse me as I like to spend time in the 20th Century (kind of miss it sometimes)

"Gimme Indie Rock!" -Post 1


First of a new series of posts - wanted to represent newer bands -already got a punk post "Sheena is a Punk Rocker" but that really concerntrates on the  pioneers from  that era -so I needed a title that could cover more bases so  this Sebadoh tune  is an excellent choice for the title for this new feature p

Promised I'd do a post about Saint Agnes a few weeks ago ..may of posted vids before in playlists on other blogs but in case you missed them I'll post them again -Kittys got great style & can build a decent guitar  - and I love that big bluesy noirish  sound.

I've said this b4 a great source to find out what's happening around  London ..discovered many an excellent band from Neils site.


Next up a group I featured in September playlist on the main blog.. fave newish band  sonically and aesthetically  The Flytraps- theres been a few line ups including a Death Valley Girl ..I think she's been replaced by a dude in a gimp mask lol


I'm bound to feature more vids from The Flytraps in future playlists look out for them.
