A tour of Soho, Montmartre, bohemians, Paris jazz, punk, Mano Negra and Malcolm Mclaren

Anne Pigalle: trés chic

This edition of Peter Culshaw’s periodic global music radio show features guest special guest Anne Pigalle. A flâneuse and doyenne of the urban demi-monde, she came to our attention recording for ZTT Records in the 1980s and ran Soho nights at the Café de Paris, did Japanese commercials for Jean-Paul Gaultier, and a series of innovative albums including Madame Sex. She recently won the best art film award for the multi-media project Ecstase at the Portobello Film Festival 2019, the film based on her recent and probably best album of the same name. Her numerous activities, like a forthcoming art workshop in Hackney on November 11 can be found at her website. Not impressed by current French pop like Christina and the Queens or Daft Punk, she prefers to look back to when Paris was capital of the arts in the last century to look forward: this show features French music from chanson, to punk, prog, Parisian based African music to classical, jazz and swing.
