Crayons To Perfume's Girl of the Week is Christine Pilzer and the fabulous Femmes de Francais!

Christine Pilzer was the ultimate ye-ye girl! A disc jockey, a mod, a teenager in France who loved just being a teenager! Sneaking out from her parents, hanging with her gang, loving pop music, fashion and comics. She was also an illustrator for comic books! But the one thing she had not done was make a record - and so she did!

Christine is one of the few ye-ye girls who was able to take a light hearted approach to her two EP musical career, and be in control of it - and it's why she still enjoys the memories. See her perform, looking almost exactly as she did in the 60's in her bowl haircut with petite figure and mod dress - with Les Terribles in 2006!

Now listen to a full hour of Crayons To Perfume 16 - French girls, Canadian Girls and other girls who sang in French!

Christine Pilzer: Mon P'tit Homme Spatial
Christine Pilzer:Ils pataugent
Christine Pilzer:Ah-Hem-Ho-Uh-Err
Violaine: Dam dou ah

Cleo: Et moi, et toi, et soie
Cleo & Cedric: Le Jour Se Lèvera Sur Tout Ça
Karine: Une Autre Autoroute
Les Intrigantes - Mets Chinois
Michelle Richard - Les Boites A Gogo
Claire Lepage - Bam Bam Bam
Karo - dans le ventre d'une enorme baleine
Ariane et les 20/10 Louie, Reviens Chez Toi
Petula Clark: L'Agent Secret
RIA BARTOK: C'est Trop Tot
Gillian Hills: Tut Tut Tut Tut
Charlotte Leslie: Les filles c'est fait pour fair l'amour

This week, Crayons to Perfume is IN TROUBLE! GIRL TROUBLE! with our Girl of the Week, Linda Flavell Scott!!

Little is known about our girl of the week, Linda (Flavell, as she was known in the US) Scott except for a handful of rather obscure girl pop 45's. Linda is however best known for her version of 'The Trouble With Me Is You' - our theme for this week!
As far as I know, Linda stopped recording in 1969, and here's one of her last releases, 'You Wanted Me To Be Your Baby' which to me sounds a bit like Lulu's later 60's material.

Now, check out the rest of our troubled girls on this week's Crayons To Perfume show 15

Linda Flavel Scott: The Trouble of Me Is You
Linda Flavel Scott: You Made A Fool Of Me
Linda Flavel Scott: Sweet Sweet Reason

The Chiffons: My Boyfriends Back
Diane Renay: Troublemaker
Girl In Trouble Trailer
The Charmers: Looking for Trouble
Ikettes: Trouble On My Mind
The Angelos: Bad Motorcycle
Carole King: He’s A Bad Boy
The Angels: The Guy With The Black Eye
Reparata & The Delrons: The Kind of Trouble That I love
The Pussycats: Dressed In Black
The Shangri las: Leader Of The Pack
Suzy Cope: Juvenile Deliquent
The Chicks: The Rebel Kind
The Man-Eaters: Get Off The Road
