Musique Belgique

Yo, Plastic Bertrand, I'm-a let you finish, but Les Tueurs de la Lune de Miel were one of the greatest Belgian New Wave acts of all time:

My first exposure to the band was hearing A Deep Space Romance (which is basically a macabre joke centered around a simple bit of English wordplay) on the local local college radio station, where longtime DJ "Your Old Pal" Jim Riecken is a great champion of Francophone rock. The band's biggest single was Route Nationale 7, which makes for a jauntier counterpart to Kraftwerk's more placid Autobahn.

I never heard those guys and gals before. I like it!

I do remember Ca Plane Pour Moi fondly, from my collage daze.

Thunder had collage days? Bastard never sent me anything! I guess I didn't rank at the arts and crafts table.

Thunder had collage days?

Thunder and I attended the same prestigious bastion of prestige. Doing the math, his 30-year reunion and my 20-year will coincide...

Thunder, how's your liver?
