34. THE INDIKATION - 'Tu Manipule Ma Tete' / 'Jaqueline' / 'Indikation Ye Ye' (Larsen LZ 068) 2002
Sadly The Indikation broke up in 2007 but at least they left three incredible 45s and a pretty good album behind. Their singles are really where the action is though. This was their first 45 on the French label Larsen.
The Indikation hailed from Norway but the top side of this record 'Tu Manipule Ma Tete' is sung in French. It's a mod mover with a commercial beat that could easily have been accepted by the kids if they ever knew where to find decent music.
'Jacqueline' follows in similar mode but is perhaps not as instant on first listen but repeated plays make this another strong track.
'Indikation Ye Ye' is a swingin' instrumental in Small Faces style and it's this track I'm putting forward as the crowd pleaser. Buy this EP if you ever see it for sale but it's now a hard one to score.
