Artist: M

Album: "Satisfy Your Lust" b/w "Moderne Man" 7"; CD issue of New York London Paris Munich

Appears On (Mixes): Jeff Bridges... I Don't Need No Jeff Bridges To Put Music To My Poem!; Hobotic Mixed CDs Volumes 1-5; Why Is Everybody Else Always Having Fun?: The Best Of M

Song Notes: Jeff Bridges... I Don't Need No Jeff Bridges To Put Music To My Poem!: This was one of the early pre-"Pop Muzik" singles from M. The flip side was "Moderne Man", and the two songs were drastically rearranged and turned into a medley for the LP. This is much more guitar-based than the more common album version. Another note about the differences; "Moderne Man/Satisfy Your Lust" features the line "You're very paranoid living outside your door" where the single version has "Last night I dreamt we were fucking on the floor" -- one of the few instances where the album version was the one with the obscenities removed instead of the single version. This is from the Westside CD issue of New York London Paris Munich; there's a recent reissue on Razor & Tie, but there's a rather anemic selection of bonus tracks, so the Westside one is the one to get, if you can find it. Westside also put out M's other albums; if you're so inclined, check out The Official Secrets Act, which is one of my favorite albums ever recorded. Also, this M is Robin Scott and is NOT the M who did the music for Triplets of Belleville. That M is Mathieu Chedid. And I admit that though that M is talented and I really enjoyed the music from Triplets of Belleville, he is a total jerk for stealing M's name. Or, rather, letter. I mean, seriously, it’s not like M was just some dude in a basement somewhere; he had a top 10 hit around the world! And some of his other singles didn't do too shabbily either! So, M. Chedid: Get yerself another letter! - Rev. Syung Myung Me
