Les Négresses Vertes – Voilà L’été (1988)


Les Négresses Vertes

I was reminded of the troupe Les Négresses Vertes the other day. All fusion and very 1980s – the accordion, punk, guinguette and flea-market shenanigans. It was rather chic in its own way, but the cabaret was evidently masking something rather sad. In 1993, vocalist and band leader Helno was found dead by overdose in his mother’s Parisian apartment – from whence he came. It was fun while it lasted, peut-être. ‘Voilà L’été!’
