Nights At The Roundtable - Arlette Zola - 1967

Nights at the Roundtable with Arlette Zola and her 1967 single Mathèmatiques Èlèmentaires.

<strong>Arlette Zola - When Yè-Yè met up with Psych.</strong>

Since our sister site Late Night Music Club ran a taste of French Psych last night, I thought I would chime in and add to the mayhem with a contribution from Swiss Yè-Yè sensation Arlette Zola and an introductory excursion she made into the realm of mind-melting Psychedelia with her 1967 single Mathèmathiques Èlèmentaires.

Needless to say, this genre of French Pop was hugely popular throughout Europe in the 60's and some of it did make it to our shores via the inimitable Francoise Hardy. But Hardy was just one of a veritable tidal wave of young French Women singers who hit the studios and turned pop on its ear but sadly, we got to hear very little of it at the time.

Lucky for everyone that's changed and you get it to hear what you missed the first time around - just as if you never heard it before.

You can never say you've heard it all - but you can try. Starting with Arlette Zola.
