02/17/2005 10h00 Montréal (Canada) - Dézéry, near #1535

Picked up during my stay in Montréal, not far from the Etay loft. The tape fragments came with part of a broken car cassette player (see picture), that I found sticking out of the ice and snow that was covering pavement and curb. The two short fragments were - with a little help from the web - surprisingly easy to identify as being by the Quebecois duo 'Crampe en Masse' (Mathieu Gratton and Ghyslain Dufresne).

One of them had a tape on it, with a little yellow sticker reading: "Textes de la pratique de l'espagnol en seconde. Hatier, Paris, 1972" (see picture). I took the tape, and the three machines ...

01/24/2005 13h20 Bobigny - rue de la Station

Mixtape, with a selection of anglophonic, french and italian pop. Songs on the tape included R.E.M.'s 'Everybody hurts' (from their album Automatic for the people); 'Under the bridge' (Red Hot Chili Peppers, from the album Blood Sugar Sex Magik); Chris Isaak's Wicked Game; 'Le monde est stone', sung, I think, by Fabienne Thibeault; Frankie goes to Hollywood's 'The Power of Love' (from the album Welcome to the Pleasuredome); 'Against all odds' by Phil Collins, ...
