Docdaïl –Stone Me
Docdaïl –Stone Me/Why Do You Cry –AZ SG149 (1970 France)
DocDaïl was a French aggregation from Toulouse who released 3 singles at the time, including the sublime Stone Me. Released in 1970 it hits several targets, from late 60s Stones through a Freakbeat filter with Bonehead crunching tendencies along with a Proto Punk attitude, mainly elicited by the petulant lead vocal by Ticky Holgado. Ticky was also Johnny Hallyday’s secretary and became a well-known character actor with a long career prior to his death in 2004.
