Hero Culte wishes you a very happy year in 2017

At Christmas I was given this really great photograph of Serge Gainsbourg and Minouche Barelli posing with their Boum Badaboum balloons and t-shirts.  Serge (we’re on first name terms!) wrote the song for the Eurovision Song Contest fifty years ago, a couple of years after coming first in the Eurovision Song Contest with France Gall singing his Poupée de cire, poupée de son.  Boum Badaboum didn’t do quite as well, coming in fifth.  But it’s a great little song, although with the state of the world today probably best not to think about the lyrics too much…

Instead, let’s hope 2017 is a great year – much better than the last one.  We can hope, eh?

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.
