Pierre Eliane – Où Que Tu Ailles
From Pierre Eliane – Littérature
Released on CBS, 1984, France
We’re back with our favorite French priest of the Roman Catholic Church, Pierre Eliane (if you don’t know his story you can read it here), with a super sultry slow electro boogie jam with slightly scandalous lyrics.
Depicting the chase in the streets of Paris of a narrator looking for a prostitute, Pierre Eliane describes in both a very paranoiac and sophisticated way some dirty scenes going up in the city, paying a classy tribute to classic detective fictions and « films noirs » as the atmosphere strongly recalls of Raymond Chandler’s novels.
The high quality of the production, like on Isadora Duncan – also featured on this LP, speaks for itself : loud drum machine, loud synths, heavy bass line and even a hint of electric guitar drowned in delay… just play it on a loud sound system and see for yourself !
Où Que Tu Ailles is another killer song from Pierre Eliane and one of the most hypnotic pieces of slow boogie we’ve heard from France for a while, strongly recalling The System‘s Logic !
