Funky Chillin' On The Beach

On the beach is the best place to be, as Cliff Richard told us a long time ago. This cloudcast is partly inspired by ‘The Parifornia Tapes Vol. 2’ from Walter Sobcek. This is what the French duo from Paris say about themselves on Soundcloud:

“Walter Sobcek is born during a party on the hills of Hollywood. We met a very special man, halfway between Jeffrey Lebowski and Patrick Bateman. He told us his life, his relations in the early 90s porn industry of L.A., his parties with his buddies Charlie Sheen and Traci Lords. We couldn´t believe it. The guy disappeared but we decided to tell his story through music... In 2012, their cover of the Hall and Oates classic 'She´s Gone' was picked by Les Inrockuptibles to feature on their covers compilation with Hot Chip, Brigitte and José Gonzalès, among others.”
