CD Reviews

Years ahead of their time

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Odd, charming CD. meets chanson (or should it be chansonne?) in the form of singer/songwriter/guitarist T. Durbin and his partner Bernadette Colomine. Band name presumably refers to the French nightclub dance routine - not Native Americans per se. Literate, idiosyncratic songs, perhaps best conveyed by some of the song titles: "Merle's Cravate," "Last Night I Was Bad Person's Plaything" "My Baby - Il Est Souvent Au Lit," plus covers of "Je N'Ai Besoin De Personne En Harley-Davidson" (the Brigit Bardot song) and Cole Porter's "I've Got You under My Skin." Durbin and Colomine's second effort appears as "Shoofly." Definitely worth taking a flyer on this one."
I Second That Emotion

"M. Noland's review is pretty much dead on. If this album had come out in the mid-to-late 90s at the height of the alt-country movement it would not have been ignored as it was in 1990. It is an absolutely unique blend of country, punk/new wave, and French chanteuse music, It's really hard to describe it better than that. I've been enchanted by this album for years and listen to it as regularly as almost any album in my large collection. If you think you have heard the oft-recorded "You're The Reason" before, I guarantee you have never heard it done like this."
