Momus is alive and well and playing in Paris

Tonight I play the BB Mix Festival in Paris.



Well, I say Paris, but the festival is happening in Boulogne-Billancourt, which is a suburb out to the west of the city. Nearest metro is Marcel Sembat, and I'm onstage approximately 8.30pm, for about 45 minutes.

45 mn : 3 petits quarts d'heure seulement ! alors que tes passages scéniques sont si rares...
Ok je ne vais pas me plaindre. Avec l'irrésistible séance de lecture à la Société de Curiosité, je devrais dire que 2009 est une année faste ! :-)
Au plaisir de te voir et de t'écouter ce soir.

Thank you Nick for your ever entertaining ways, this time as part of the Jacques Brel tribute show. If only Southbank Meltdown's could be as precise & sweet as the Carousel show.

This most sincere sextet of singers, driven by a 20 piece orchestra, made each and every motorway mile, so worthwile.

For anyone who would like to know the running order & set list, I am pleased to raise the baton:

Momus:
Ne Me Quitte Pas
La Ville S'Endomait
Les Bourgeois

Arthur H:
Sur La Place
Je Suis Un Soir D'Ete
Madeleine

Diamanda Galas:
La Chanson Des Vieux Amants
Fernand
Amsterdam

Camille O'Sullivan:
Marieke
Les Vieux
Au Suivant

Arno:
Le Bon Dieu
Bruxelles
Voir Un Ami Pleurer

Marc Almond:
The Devil Ok
I'm Coming
La Valse A Mille Temps

Finale of Marc Almond / Momus / Camille O'Sullivan:
La Chanson Jacky

The detail probably arrived very late to the preperation, but was duly noted, understood & enjoyed. Right down to the orchestra signing Momus' Brel brace off, in true Paris Olympia 1961 style, with a busrt of Quand On N'a Que L'amour.

Re: Warwick University

Ah, you were there, Robert? Damn! I came out front at the end briefly, and spoke to three old ladies who so overwhelmed me with their affection that I ran away and hid.

Re: Warwick University

Yes, and I can tell you, it wasn't easy leaving the Gents toilets at the intermission whilst wearing a Momus T-shirt.

So many of the plucky penis pointing porcelain aiming audience were ramaging for info on Momus. I really couldn't concentrate, and was the last to leave the urinal.

After the rest had gone I needed a rest from the rest room.

I was sitting right at the front, a few seats away from someone who I believed to be a very excitable Klaus.

Bravo pour ta dynamique prestation!

Bravo indeed, jeu de scène unique et choix de ta setlist exceptionnel, j'étais aux anges (avec un côté voyeur avoué sans rougir aucunement). A très bientôt j'espère, tu reviens quand ?

BB Mix Festival

Enjoyed your performance, a veritable kaleidoscope - Ashes to Ashes will never sound the same again. Well done! This was my first time to see you and hope to catch your show again.

Re: BB Mix Festival

The best ever in more than 2 decades!
Enfin ce n'est que mon humble opinion, Nick, tu t'es surpassé !
3/4 d'heure, pas long certes, mais quelle intensité ...
Je m'attendais à un titre de Brel que j'aurais écouté avec plaisir et ô joie tu as choisi les cendres retournant aux cendres de Bowie pour achever ce set.
Beau oui comme Bowie...

And what great 45 minutes those were. Loved the set- list, the performance and the beefed-up playback music. Probably the best Momus performance i have seen (and i am on my fifth right now).
Keep going!
