Music Notes: Sham 69, Serge Gainsbourg, Wounded Lion

Posted by Jason Diamond

Wounded Lion is one of the top five bands I am most upset about missing at SXSW. They’re going to be putting out a record on In the Red (always a good sign), and they play unpretentious music for pretentious people. Does that make any sense?

I’d never seen this Sham 69 video until today.  Not sure how skinheads across England felt after they saw this on their televisions in the late 1970s.

Dangerous Minds posted this video
of Serge Gainsbourg, Gerard Depardieu and Johnny Hallyday performing “Harley Davidson.” Not only is it the most French thing ever, Serge is sitting on a BMW motorcycle. That’s comic gold!
