Jean-Pierre Ferland – God is an American. A blend of Gil Scott-Heron’s spoken words and a early seventies tv show theme set in New York with a hardboiled policeman and his martial art master sidekick with an afro, a mustard yellow turtleneck sweater and brown corduroy pants.


The Moonbears – We are Bi Bi Ba Ba Boom. Les Lunours were a band centered around a proto-Telletubies French-Canadian TV Show that was such a flop one of the producers kill himself (*). Their only legacy is this single (with Terre Terre as side-b). This is the English version of Nous sommes Bi Bi Ba Ba Boum Boum, a wonderful space-conquest/bubblegum pop song that I just discovered thanks to reverbradio.

(*) all the informations I found about this band came from the excellent vintage Québec pop radio show
