    I think it's "thank Fairnie for that" (maybe he's the admin that banned him?).
    Ah right. Can't disagree.

    Quite enjoyed his nocturnal posts, just not the ones on this thread.

    Thing of beauty.
    As a lifelong Yes & Jon fan I'm really pleased to see his music getting a little love on here. (PS the original is better!)

    OK, I'll bore you with some French stuff. Stromae, a Belgian singer/songwriter burst on to the scene here in 2013/14. He went from unknown to huge overnight, ended up doing something like 450 concerts in 18 months and suffered a breakdown/burnout. He's only now getting himself slowly back to work.

    This song is meant to be a guy, blootered after splitting up with his woman and making a pest of himself in public. The main play on words is "formidable" and "fort minable" (really pathetic).

    I think it's exceptional.

    The song starts at about 3:40 but the rest's a good enough watch.

    OK I'll do a triple-whammy then I'll stop boring you with the French stuff.

    Louise Attaque are a group that have been going for almost 30 years, taking breaks to let front man Gaetan Roussel do solo stuff. He's one of my favourite French artistes and I could listen to him being interviewed all day. Anyway, this song is typical of them. Clever text and simple music. This live version is exceptional IMO.

    This is a song by a guy called Tété. I wouldn't call him a one hit wonder but not far off it. Not understanding French shouldn't matter because I struggle to make out what he's saying too, but the melody and his voice are superb IMO.

    To finish Jean-Louis Aubert. Not the best singer in the world but a great songwriter & performer. The video's worth watching for the cheesetastic drumming by Richard Kolinka (a major force in French rock).
