If you think the girl in the picture resembles Deborah Harry, you're not the only one. In fact, in 1978 Hansje Ravesteijn won a Dutch Blondie lookalike contest. The first prize was a trip to NYC, to meet Debby Harry. After that, Hansje decided to go her own way: be a dancer, a singer, a tv-presenter and an actress. She recorded two 'French' singles, the discofied Tu es Belle (b-side to her single Automobile) and Silex Pistols Piew Piew, a song that was the female answer to Plastic Bertrand's Ça Plane pour moi. Exploitation pop in it's finest form. (merci Maks)
