Jusqu'à aujourd'hui, j'aimais surtout Brigitte pour deux albums fabuleux (Brigitte Fontaine est... et son éponyme de 72) et une phrase ("Le soleil, c'est un gros con"). Maintenant que je sais qu'elle fait du ski, je l'aime un peu plus encore.
Step One: Fish out an old Walkman from you or your parent’s attic, shed or cupboard-under-the-stairs. Everyone has one lurking around somewhere.
Step Two: Buy a cassette from your local charity shop. Do judge a book (cassette) by its cover, but make sure that you also check that it is held together with screws, as sealed plastic ones are much harder to open. I chose an Ottawan Best Of, partly because it had a great cover, and partly because there wasn’t much else to choose from. However, the cassette turned out to be sealed with plastic, so I had to resort to my back-up choice, a home-recorded copy of the soundtrack to the (terrible) 1977 film Black Joy, one of the few examples of British Blaxploitation cinema.
