The Balfa Brothers – Parlez-Nous A Boire

For a time all that went around my head was the atmospheric rumble of Ry Cooder’s slide guitar. More specifically his turn on the Southern Comfort soundtrack which both exhilarated and scared the bejaysus out of me. And if his mood pieces weren’t enough there was the hypnotic Cajun music to be getting on with. The piece included here is ‘Parlez-Nous a Boire’ from the Balfa Brothers which arrived at the crux of Walter Hill’s movie when the threat of malice and the death of a domestic animal played out in a masterful montage of scenes. It may lack the scorching unforgiveness of Deliverance but Southern Comfort and its haunting soundtrack is the one I return to time and again. KD
