I heard this on CFNY in the early 80's on the Chris
Sheppard show late at night.

very easy!
this a a song by the great french singer lizzy mercier descloux... 1979 i think. tumour, it's a pun with the jazz standard called fever, of course
she started in the post punk area, did some records in the 80s. got a couple of big hits in france circa 1984.
we hope she'll find a new record company one day!

Michael,
I millions thanks. I've been looking for the artist of this one forever and was resigned to not knowwing. Thanks again I'm estactic. Now all I have to do is find out where I can buy a copy of this record. I have it on tape but the beginning and end are slightly clipped off because it was on a mixed tape.

Lorne

it's funny, because someone else on this board(sorry i forgot his name) put another song by lizzy on his "wanted" website
i recognized ;)
btw, you'll find her unofficial mailing-list on google. subscribe & make a swap!
