It is far and few that I strongly recommend a Pop record achievement from my own country but, here is one of those rare instances when I strongly do; it is nothing short of a mini-masterpiece, the one time collaboration between famous Tarantino "Death Proof" movie soundtrack recording star, April March (in her world known cover of Swingin' Mademoiselle Ye Ye queen France Gall's Serge Gainsbourg-penned "Laisse Tomber les Filles" : "Chick Habit" that was even used later for a national Renault French car advertising campaign)... and French Indie Avant-rock band, Aquaserge, from the southern provincial town of Toulouse, up to here an excellent Robert Wyatt-era Soft Machine influenced combo. Excellent... which in itself is a rare instance among the French indie rock and pop scene enough to mention!
Just had an advance copy of that : if there's only gonna be one DVD of the Doors you're ever gonna need, THIS is IT ; no boring interview with critics or old geezers, no biography documentary we all seen a thousand times... it contains only rare film clips of them, not all the clips there was, but a LOT here I've never seen yet and, the others I have... never as better quality than this! I just realized I have the plain common one but, there's a Deluxe Edition available too, "packaged in a 40-page DVD sized hardback book with a “scrapbook” style presentation on each track including lyrics, background info, trivia and photos." WOW! (Should I ditch my discout copy and get it?... ) Well, I used to hate the Doors when I started a Garage Punk thinking how ridiculously OVERrated they were but, I used to hate Hendrix too... and just seeing the first few rare clips here, it almost makes me reconcile with Morrison & co. I have the first three original albums as Classic 60's West Coast rock, thinking at getting the Soft Parade too and, sorry Garage Nazis, the first album in MONO is actually Great! And their first single : "Break On Through" IS Sunset Strip Garage-rock :-)
