Brilliant Anglo-French collective Whyte Horses have unveiled their new single ‘ Ca Plane Pour moi’ – roughly translated as ‘cool for me’ or ‘fine with me’ – it is an engaging take on the Plastic Bertrand release from 1977 that became a UK top 10 in 1978.
Seen by many as an iconic track of the time, but something of a forgotten punk era classic, the original even had Clash frontman Joe Strummer professing “Plastic Bertrand, compressed into that three minutes a bloody good record that will get any comatose person toe-tapping, you know what I mean? By purist rules, it’s not allowed to even mention Plastic Bertrand. Yet, this record was probably a lot better than a lot of so-called punk records.”
On the back of debut album ‘Pop or not?’ in 2016 and last years follow up ‘Empty Words’ the critically acclaimed and BBC 6 Music favorites have continued in fine style here with a clever and impressive remake that retains all the charm of the original, but which also adds that all important and unmistakable Whyte Horse psych-trash essence.
