Nouvelle Vague

Having been reminded of my fondness for the Guns of Brixton, that was lining up to be my next post. As I searched youtube my eye was drawn to this interesting cover from 2004.

I do actually know Nouvelle Vague, was interested in them at the time, and have their first CD. But I had forgotten them – so this was a genuine and pleasant reminder. Looks like I need to revisit them and check out their more recent albums.

This clip is doubly different. Quite a few versions are accompanied by grainy stills or footage from the Brixton Riots of 1981 – although do remember that the Clash original predates the riots – whereas here are someone’s holiday snaps
