Luna Parker : "Félin pour l'autre" LP (1988- Barclay)
French duo Luna Parker (Rachel Ortas and Eric Tabuchi, former members of new wave outfit Tokow Boys) arose like a salutary fresh breeze in the french charts sky in 1986 with its anthem "Tes états d'âme Eric", a genious mixture of mindlessness, trivial puns, exotica beats and killing melody. After 3 more singles, came their one and only LP "Félin pour l'autre" in 1988, which, despite some typical 80's tics, abounds with true pop pearls...The album has never been properly reedited on CD.
The song "La tour de Londres", included in the LP, was written for the duo by gifted french songwriter Jean-François Coen and became the single "La tour de Pise" 5 years later on his eponym debut album. The video - see below- was directed by Michel Gondry.
