Lennart Messagie & Dagleth –And I Love Her


Lennart Messagie & Dagleth –And I Love Her/Wake Up –Sugar Plum 84-17.002Y (1973 Bel)

Belgian Glam Pop combo with more than a sense of the ridiculous; catch these lyrics:
She’s missing an eye, she’s got a wooden leg
she’s only got four fingers and one big foot
she laughs like a beast and she talks like a dog…
And I love her, yes I love her, I love her like nobody else can do…

You’ve got to wonder about these guys’ sexual preferences, especially as one of their other singles is titled Sleeping With My Dog! Whatever the lyrical content, And I Love Her is a superb piece of melodic BubbleGlam, so catchy you can almost suspend belief as they sing: She’s not so bad, just got to close my eyes…
L M &D later evolved into Glam Popsters Hush (not the Australian ones as those guys most likely slept with dingoes…)

There must be a bit of 'lost in translation' going on there.

Have you seen this album full of 'Pure Pop' style nuggets

Hello!
Round 5 years ago I was looking for some info about that Belgian band without finding anything.
So from now on, it's done.
"And I Love Her" / "Wake Up" were produced by Louis de Vries producer of The Pebbles and by Fredd Bekky himself of THE PEBBLES.
By the way, you don't have any other information about their real first names and surnames ?
All the best from rocking Belgium,
Stephan Koenig
PS: you can have a look at my facebook profile...

Hi I have 2 other singles by L.M&D (Make It Better and Sleeping with my dog). The You can Make It Better is written by C.Lennart, J. Dagleth , Sleeping with My dog is written by Messagie-Dagleth -so these aren't made up names. I also have the LP they made as Hush with several Lennart/ Dagleth compositions.

Their real names are Chris Leonard , son of the famous Belgian manager and impressario Bob Leonard, Marc Messagie ( died last year ) and John Dageleth, and believe me , there is no ' lost in translation ' going on ..
