This French new wave track from 1981 is decent enough, I suppose (they’re no Stinky Toys), but the video’s fantastic for its colourful backdrop, which consists entirely of images from one of my all-time favourite music books (memorably described in a 2004 article by Nick Coleman as “the pornography of rock” as well as its “stained glass window”).

    This video was taken by Yannick Le Joubioux (the guitarist with glasses) on a french local tv. Today, he plays in “the little searchers” witch is my father’s band too, and he made myspace pages
    for both bands:
