Plastic Bertrand – Gueule D’Amour
As the snow falls around us, how about we get warm and cosy with everybody’s favourite Belgian anti-pop star Plastic Bertrand and his cover of 1983 new wave/Balearic classic? Oh, go on then! It’s too cold to argue.
Covering Nacht Und Nebel’s glorious leftfield classic ‘Beats of Love’, Bertrand croons in French on this slightly melancholic pop oddity. Probably the best cover of Patrick Nebel’s most famous song, this alongside ‘Stop Ou Encore’ is probably the best thing the new wave prankster ever did (yes, that includes the ad man’s favourite).
That crazy Plastic Bertrand! He’s probably building a nice snowman outside as we speak…
