Vienna “Pour Ne Pas Me Toucher” 1988

Mute France had opened their doors and one of the first signings was this trio from France’s industrial heartland, fronted by the lovely and talented Odile Arias.

I met up with them in Paris and then recorded this single during a break in the recording of Arnold’s album in Belgium. I just think this is a really great song. Longtime Kraftwerk member Karl Bartos did a version of it that can be heard on the excellent Vienna retrospective set from Undo Records.

I don’t think a video was made for Pour Ne Pas Me Toucher but here’s a cool one they made a couple of years earlier.
