“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.
