South Park is bringing the spaced out electronic pop music of Jean Jacques-Perrey to a new audience. The most recent episode of SP features a track from Perry and Countryman’s 2006 album The Happy Electropop Music Machine. Hearing this happy music juxtaposed with these cartoon men bouncing through the streets of South Park on their cancerous testicles was not something I ever expected, but if it turns on more people to The In Sound From Way Out, then I can’t complain.
BTW, I shot a bunch of footage of Perrey & Countryman during their album launch party in 2006. Here is their live version of Chicken On The Rocks.
