Leonie Lousseau interview from July 1971

I recently bought a copy of Pop Music Superhebdo dated 8 July 1971 for a François Jouffa article about and interview with Léonie.
Leonie Super Hebdo001Here’s a few interesting snippets from it:

  • We’re back to knocking 3 years off  Léonie’s age in this one – her birthday is still quoted as 8 May but it says 1950 rather than 1947
  • Apparently she likes children, humour and artists of all kinds
  • At the time Léonie was going to buy a red or yellow moped
  • Léonie had no particular place she called home, just 3 suitcases that she kept with her wherever she went
  • The musicians from Jupiter Sunset played on the En Alabama single
  • Léonie was choosy about what she wanted to sing – she  didn’t want to do just anything under the pretext that producers found her cute
  • Léonie studied photography, design and drawing at high school as well as, I think, baking (it says la patisserie in the article)
  • Later she was a model for magazines and then (still at that stage in 1971) she worked as a graphic designer on a monthly magazine for “modern men” – I’m guessing this was Lui but in the Salut Les Copains article about Léonie it said she also worked on SLC
  • Aside from Christophe and Thierry Vincent, another man helped Léonie in her music career – he is named as Stanislas Witold, then a Press Officer at Disques Motors

No amazing bit of new info here but it’s still interesting.  Hope others like it, here it is in full:

Elsewhere in the magazine it said Léonie would be on the TV show Le Grand Amphi on Sunday 11 July 1971.  Anyway got a copy for me?!!

Polite Notice:  I don’t mind people using my info or pictures but, if you do,  please be decent and credit Hero Culte and link back to this page.  Believe it or not, I put a lot of effort into my work on here!


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.
