post-punk gems, v. 25 — Plastic Bertrand

Happy Wednesday, readers! I’m back with another gem from back in the day — nearly 35 years to the day, actually. Plastic Bertrand — nee Roger Allen François Jouret — played in a Rolling Stones cover band, studied music at school, and released his first solo LP in the UK 35 years ago this week. Included on J’tte Fais Un Plan is one of the greatest one-hits of the era, “Ca Plan Pour Moi.”

Years later, on one of the most delightful compilations by primarily American bands of punk-iness, Freedom of Choice, Sonic Youth took a go at this track.

While this cover rocks, I think this irascible one’s my favorite from this collection. It should be played loudly.
