If thatâ€™s translated poorly, donâ€™t blame me, blame Babelfish. My parents raised an English speaker. As alluded to in an earlier post, 2007 is the year that I discovered THE BRISTOLS and their new-solo vocalist, FABIENNE DEL SOL. Iâ€™m hooked. Fabienne herself has a new solo record out now, her second, called â€œBETWEEN YOU AND MEâ€Â. This French-native English lass skirts the brassy 60s pop of her homeland, and marries it to raw surfbeat, stomping garage rock of a decidedly â€œMerseyâ€Â bent, and full-blown sugartown pop music. This latest record is better than her very solid solo debut, â€œNO TIME FOR SORROWSâ€Â, and is probably as good as her BRISTOLS material (which is fantastic â€“ all of it â€“ start with the new greatest-hits collection). I donâ€™t know, Iâ€™ll have to get back to ya. Iâ€™m crossing my digits for a US tour to see if what goes on in the studio will translate to a live stage, but after seeing Bristols clips on You Tube, Iâ€™m fairly certain that it will. Let me know what you think!
