Peaux de Serpent - Axel Bauer
As far as I can tell, this album should be something for all ye forlorn to whom the demise of Alain Bashung in 2009 was a major misfortune, OR for all us who have harboured a soft spot for Axel Bauer ever since 'Cargo de Nuit' back in the days.
(1983, as a matter of fact.)
(What a bizarre quirk of fate to have your first hit single be not only your biggest-selling but also your most deviant from the others.)
'Peaux de Serpent' is pretty basic rock music, a bit introspective, nothing too frilly.
It's runner-friendly, which will be extra-nice, in case winter should finally decide it's time to retire.
