ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Elton Motello is best known for his obnoxious cover of Plastic Bertrand's "Ca plane Pour Moi", entitled "Jet Boy Jet Girl" - hence the name of the compilation. The single coupled smarmy lyrics with Bertrand's backing track, somehow illustrating the mad style of this Englishman who had worked in Belgian studios. Elton Motello then "escaped (...) juvenility and became a half-baked quirky pop-rocker" (Ira Robbins).

The "Jet Boy Jet Girl" compilation gathers the best titles of Motello's two albums ("Victim of time" and "Pop Art"), mixing genuine band effort along with worthy singles. Consequently, a peculiar ode to a drunken father ('He's a rebel') lies on the verge of a stunning version of 'Pipeline', and synth-pop longing for a weird mood flirts with punk-rock à la Ramones.

Elton Motello certainly boasts, but he most likely boasts to entertain.

Correction
Whoever wrote the blurb above is mixed up on the history; Elton Motello's band provided the music for Plastic Bertrand's "Ca plane pour moi." Bertrand used Motello's musicians to record his track.

So glad I found it again!
This is a fun CD for all those times you're in the mood to hear some punk-pop. Only for those who know the fine art of 'not taking it too seriously'. Good times!

One of the best songs ever
I will never forget when my friend asked me if I had heard Elton Motello singing Ca Plane Pour Moi in English...
He taped the album Victim Of Time for me.
I was amazed. I still am. One of my fave albums.
Today I know though that it was Plastic Bertrand who sang a French version of Elton Motello's song.
