French music a gogo : Stella

Stella was 13 when she recorded her first EP. Between 1963 and 1969, she recorded 9 ep's,19 singles and an album (also issued in the USA and Canada). Her songs were always different,funny and ironic and that's why she was called the anti-Sheila. She and her uncle Maurice used to write her songs.After a while Stella became tired of showbiz and wanted to do something more adventurous in music.Stella married Christian Vander, drummer and spiritual leader of Magma,the legendary French progressive group.She became the lead female voice of the group.Recently Stella (Vander) expressed surprise when fans of her yé-yé years told her how much they liked her music.She was also very surprised by the sales of the compilation 2-cd on Magic-records.Stella said that after listening to the cd she now understood that those years (which she enjoyed very much but in which she didn't think to have made any notable music) were not wasted at all since the songs were really funny and charming for that time.

    Ce qui est amusant, c'est que je possède ce 45t acheté par hasard sur une brocante. C'est effectivement très ironique. Et il a fallu que j'arrive ici via "la foire à tout" pour découvrir le nom de famille de Stella et qu'elle figurait dans une autre partie de ma discothèque avec les lps de Magma...
    Merci donc.
