An 1 - Plastic Bertrand

An 1
Plastic Bertrand was the alias of new wave prankster Roger Jouret, a native of Belgium who appropriated the sound and style of the new wave movement in order to give it a gently satirical poke in the ribs, while scoring several European hits in the process.

Jouret began his musical career as a drummer for the Belgian punk trio Hubble Bubble, which recorded one unsuccessful album. When Jouret met producer / songwriter Lou Deprijck, the two struck up a recording partnership.

CA PLANE POUR MOI was their first single release from AN 1 and is widely regarded as a New Wave classic for its gleefully deranged stupidity, with Jouret singing French nonsense lyrics in a cartoonish voice over basic three-chord rock & roll complete with saxophones and a falsetto vocal hook straight out of the Beach Boys or Four Seasons. The song was a smash hit in Europe and became a cult favourite in America (#39 Billboard Hot 100) and peaked at #8 in the UK charts.

Plastic Bertrand continued to release records in Europe, including a U.K. top 40 hit remake of the Small Faces' SHA LA LA LA LEE.

"By design or by dead-eyed accident, its absurd reductive approach acheives punk's stated intent of making all that went before sound convoluted, bloated and slow". Jim Wirth (Uncut - July 2012)
