I Went To A Party I Danced All Night

I’ve just remembered I was meant to be doing some Surf Sunday posts. Sorry George, I’ll try harder next week.

I think it was Dirk from Sexyloser who tipped me off to this, and my mp3 player has shuffled it up twice in the last few days- Nouvelle Vague, French loungecore/bossa nova/easy listening interpretors of punk, tackling a Dead Kennedys song and turning it from a fratboy anthem into something else entirely, particularly the inspired one-off vocal.

Too Drunk To Fuck

Plus a picture of John Steinbeck looking dapper, a man who would surely never be too drunk for a bit of hows-yer-father.

  1. The DKs, now there's a great band. It's gospel (not surfing) sunday in our household.

  2. "hows-yer-father"? Now this is an English expression I've not known until now … must find out more!And yes, might have been me indeed who mentioned that fine version recently …

  3. I'm a little obsessed with the Nouvelle Vague version of Our Lips Are Sealed complete with Terry Hall on guest vocals. Tis on youtube, well worth checking out.
