1000 portraits of bertrand by Munchflower 1000 portraits of bertrand by Munchflower
I'm obsessed with his face. So much character, such unusual lines and curves. It has taught me much. Sad eyes, despite my subject originally lacking. I might draw him 1000 times just to learn how. One day i'll get it right.

Pity he had to be a murderer :iconfacepalmplz:

It does suck. I was into them for years before I found that out, because I live in a hole. I do not excuse his actions, but I pathetically still love his work with Noir Desir.

I admit, even I love his stuff! :love:

But it is ironic that Till Lindemann killed no-one whereas this angel-faced guy killed 2! :cries: (Abetted wife to suicide; I count that as murder)

I still wonder where his kids are.... poor things :'(

You made a great picture, btw! :clap:

I have no idea, I haven't looked into his story in ages. I know Bertrand makes music here and there on occasion still but nothing like what he did before.

Yeah, band music and solo music does have a very different effect; but I'm only listening to Noir Desir. I can't bring myself to listen to him now; and I'm not interested either. :no:

But I read a Youtube comment that went like 'Yes he killed, but boycotting the band would mean disregarding the others' efforts' here were other guys in there too, so yes; it'll be unfair to them. They are also totally awesome!! :nod:

What is your fave songs from them, but? Mine are-:
Le Vent Nous Portera
L'homme presse
Un jour en France

Plus even their rendition of the Beatles 'I Want You' is EPIC!!!! :squee:

Can you recommend me some other good ones? Thanks :hug:

God...narrowing down my favorites....

Anything from their Noir Desir En Public album was amazing. My absolute favorites are:

the LIVE version of Bouquet Des Nerfs -… ( the whole concert is on youtube and well worth the watch )
Des Visages Des Figures
Elle Va Ou Elle Veut
Au Sombres Heros de l'Amer
Sweet Mary
The Partisan w/16 Horsepower ( who are another amazing amazing band, see also Woven Hand )

That's just a START.

Lost was cool. Des Visages Des Figures is kinda creepy :fear: The Partisan version I heard was with Leonard Cohen.

I'll check out the others, thanks :)
