MessageSujet: My Mention of Françoise   Lun 20 Sep 2010 - 4:28

I am not sure if any of you read Ugly Things magazine (which focuses primarily on garage and psych rock, but also any "wild sounds from past dimensions") but I wanted to alert you all to the fact that I gave Françoise a bit of promotion in the last issue. I am a freelance writer for the magazine, contributing book, CD, and DVD reviews, and when asked by my editor to submit a "playlist" of my current listening and viewing habits, Françoise topped the list. Being the only female writer for the magazine, I wonder how well my selections will go over among the punk-loving readers. I wrote:

"Françoise Hardy - from her earliest Vogue EPs to her current release La pluie sans parapluie. A particular favorite is 1971's seductive La question."
Cool

Thank you, Matthew! That was just a small way I could perhaps foster an interest in her work among those who follow my reviews in the magazine. Smile

Pierre, the magazine is out right now. There is no feature article on Françoise, just my little mention of her in the Playlist section. I just thought I would draw some attention to her among the garage and punk fans to get their reaction.

(Ritchie Unterberger, who has written reviews of FH's albums on All Music, is also a contributor to Ugly Things, and he has a Playlist in that section, too.)

There is a little black and white picture of me next to my Playlist, though! lol.

Thank you for posting the link the the American fanzine - very cool. Smile

Le magazine est sorti en ce moment. Il n'ya pas de reportage sur Françoise, juste mon peu mention de son dans la section "Playlist." J'ai juste pensé que je voudrais attirer une certaine attention à elle parmi les fans de "punk" et "garage" et d'obtenir leur réaction.

(Ritchie Unterberger, qui a écrit les commentaires des albums de FH sur All Music, est également un facteur de Ugly Things, et il a une liste de lecture de cet article, aussi.)

(I may post this in a French section, too.)

Thank you both for your responses! Smile

But if the name of the magazine is Ugly things.... then Françoise shouldn't be mentioned inside Laughing

LOL - This is true! Laughing

( By the way, the name comes from a pun on the name of the band "The Pretty Things," and also a take on this quote: "Art produces ugly things which frequently become more beautiful with time. Fashion, on the other hand, produces beautiful things which always become ugly with time." -
Jean Cocteau)

Just an update: A reader who follows my reviews in Ugly Things recently sent me a Facebook friend request because he too is an (American) fan of Françoise! I guess readers are paying attention!

Hi Alison,
I'm French, living in the US, and converted a friend to Françoise's music. She is addicted to her music and voice and I managed to get a personalized autograph from Françoise a couple months ago for my friend, who, upon opening the letter almost fainted.

I found it incredibly thoughtful of Françoise to have taken the time to do that.

So, there ARE Françoise fans in the US! Smile
My friend said she was extremely frustrated to not have been exposed to French music all these years (Etienne Daho being also one of her drugs of choice), because there's really no popular outlet that would venture to play it.
Sad.
But Merci Françoise!

Hi! Thanks for your response. I, too, almost fainted when I saw that she had autographed those pictures and had written a little personal note to me! I understand how your friend feels. I am still in a daze about it - floating on air! Very Happy

I have made some American friends on Facebook who are also fans of Françoise, so there are quite a few of us out there! Smile It is very sad that she isn't as well known in the U.S. as she should be, but there are some savvy music fans who have, and still are, discovering her.
