Evariste on Dim Dam Dom 12 November 1967

I’m a big fan of French music, which I think is obvious, but I’m also a big fan of French music shows from the 1960s and 1970s – they were so stylish and/or crazy and one of the most stylish, and crazy, was Dim’ Dam’ Dom’.  Ideal for Evariste then…?  Yes, he appeared on Dim’ Dam’ Dom’ on 12 November 1967 (director Peter Knapp?, broadcast on the 2ème chaîne).

Evariste performed Wo I Nee.  Seeing this performance alone, my first encounter with Evariste, was enough for me to start seeking out his records, magazines and articles and the TV shows.  See one performance and you will want to see more.  A unique artiste indeed:

Do you know why there are so many Chinese babies lately?

Well, it’s because their parents would often say very tenderly: Wo i nee [I love you]

Bach, he had 26 children – he played his instrument really well…

About tinynoggin

I love films (anything from exploitation stuff to stylish Eastern European cinema, but I'm not really into blockbusters and modern Hollywood), music (Serge Gainsbourg, Jane Birkin, Michel Polnareff, Left Banke, Francoise Hardy, The Seeds, Love, The Zombies, etc) and books (Kurt Vonnegut, Julian Maclaren-Ross, Michel Houellebecq, Patrick Hamilton, Alan Sillitoe, and more). I take photographs with my Lomography Diana F plus or my Olympus Trip and like making stuff in my spare time.
