Wet Dreams


Sky N. is spoiing us with another guestpost. Je t'aime!

Enfant terrible Australien: Kim Salmon has a reputation of being the bad-ass of primal garage rock down under. With the Scientists, he invented grunge in Perth, Western Australia, before anybody over in Seattle even thought of a term like that – for a complete history of his miscellaneous bands, see here. In 1994, Salmon named Je t’aime (moi non plus) his no. 1 all-time song on Triple J radio; four years earlier, he already had transformed Serge’s tender intercourse ballad into a feverish sonic blast of a slow-motion wet dream. Rating: Ten Baise-mois, but judge for yourself.

Late night adult bonus: A delirious, seldom-heard Je t’aime rip-off under the title Ufffhss ... I Love, issued by the Wagram label, probably dating from the mid-70s and performed by two sweaty swingers under the moniker Régie Monceau, complete with Mediterranean organ and loads of tongue play – possibly Gérard and Fanny feeling like doing it, but of course that’s just a guess ... anyone here who witnessed the original recording sessions?
