NOUVELLE VAGUE "Too Drunk To Fuck" (2004)

“Too Drunk To Fuck” (2004)
High Performance Art In Two Minutes And Twelve Seconds

This track slays me. I first heard it on Robert Rodriquez’s Planet Terror soundtrack and haven’t been able to shake it since. Essentially it’s a novelty track, a loungy/bossa nova version of the Dead Kennedy’s brutal 1981 assault, “Too Drunk To Fuck.” But… listen closely to singer Camille Dalmais, as she offers a simply fascinating performance so nuanced, you can virtually see her tousled hair, broken heel and smeared make-up. Her fluid delivery (as in runny, nasal fluids) makes it all the more convincing. Get past the joke – and the built-in appeal of a tipsy, suggestive, potty-mouth French babe – and this teasing, high performance art becomes transcendent. She actually sounds too drunk to fuck, making this gem too perfect for reality. Amazon.

    Hi Willard, share your sentiments on this cut, but getting a permission denied from MF. Any chance at a fix? Merci!
