Nouvelle Vague “Guns of Brixton”

M. Pas de Merde believes Nouvelle Vogues first album is still hip 16 years after it’s release.

The group’s first album, the self-titled Nouvelle Vague, was released in 2004. Explaining how the project came about, leader Oliver Libaux later said: “Marc Collin and I were both musicians and producers in the French music industry when, in 2003, Marc called me with this very strange idea of covering Love Will Tear Us Apart in a bossa nova version. I thought this idea was absolutely crazy but very exciting. So we decided to get into the studio and try it out as soon as possible. Then we did Just Can’t Get Enough and Guns Of Brixton. We put the album together in just eight months.”
