Desireless – John (12″)

ImageSome classic French Synthpop from 1988 and this unsung gem. Three great tracks along with a remix of “Voyage Voyage” from PWL (Mr Waterman will become a bit of a theme over the next few posts)

The title track is remixed really well, keeping the melancholic Frenchness but with a more complex beat.It is sometimes called the “London Mix” remixed by Les Adams (L.A. Mix) Sung in French ,by Claudie Fritsch-Mentrop, it is apparently about everyman, a man called John who died in a fire in Bagdad 1000 years ago and something to do with the energy of that moment ( metaphysical synthpop!) The other B-side is from 1986 is quite clubby and my favourite, I’m sure the band Air did an updated version of it.


A John (Extended Remix) 6:17
B1 Voyage Voyage (Remix) 4:21
B2 Qui Peut Savoir 3:42
