I mentioned Liechtenstein covering Clothilde's Saperlipopette in my 2008 interview with the band. At that point they'd been playing it in their live set a couple of times. Now they've finally decided to record this immensely catchy tongue breaker. Go have a listen on their myspace. While you're there, you may also want to hear a new original song, Strange ideas.

'Saperlipopette!' translates as 'Goodness me!' by the way, but you knew that of course.

You can download an MP3 of Clothilde's original in this 2007 post on Skatterbrain.

Back To One Happy Island

After some much-loved EP-releases, One Happy Island are now about to treat us on a first LP. The self titled album will be released on the excellent Odd Box Records in the beginning of June.

In advance of that LP, Odd Box offer us a free download single as a taster. The single features one song from the forthcoming album and one exclusive track (a Lonnie Donegan cover) that features special guests Horowitz. A unique combination, I'd say.

Don't miss it!
