ROCK Sex: Jacqueline Taieb, French Garage Grrrl!



ROCK Sex tells you what time it is.


Yesterday I mentioned JACQUELINE TAIEB, so let's get more hip to that trip.

Jacqueline Taieb was born in Tunisia but raised in France. As a very young teen in the mid 60's, she recorded singles during the ultra-cool YeYe scene. Her biggest hit was "7 Hueres du Matin" which she also recorded in English as "7:00 AM". Garage Rock fans enjoy her because of the edgy use of guitar on this song and her hip cultural references to Paul McCartney, Elvis, Little Richard, and The Who.

Here's a tribute I made homaging her, as well as Mod clothing designer Mary Quant and the Swinging London era.

And here is the alternate version in French.


Recently MAREVA GALANTER gave her own tribute with this great cover:

40 years later, Jacqueline returned to record a cool sequel called "7h du Soir", with a Dutch Garage band backing her.
