The Young Gods - L'eau rouge

Second album, L'eau rouge (trad. "Red water") conquered anyone who listened to this at the time, including myself. I remember we all went mad and listened to the album everyday during months. Don't forget that, in 1989, at least in France, we only had boring new-wave while Uk was dancing on acid-house, there was no energy at all in music and no-one knew about the bourgeoning noise scene in the USA, so, apart from listening to old stuff, the Young Gods were fresh air in a suffocating time. After this they began to sing in english and became famous all around the occidental depressed bourgeois world.
