    Guesch Patti is a great artist. Too bad she's only famous in France for the 80s hit "Etienne". Gobe and Labyrinth are great albums. I saw her live at the time of "Gobe" (around 1992), it was an amazing show. She was doing some kind of action painting on huge white drapes while singing suspended in the air by a harness ! Crazy.

    I wish Dernieres Nouvelles had also come out on vinyl. In a lot of clubs you can only DJ vinyl and 'Beautiful' is a killer dance track!
