Welcome to the new BlahBlahCafe!

We have migrated to a new server. As with every migration, some things might have been lost in translation (at least, that's my experience in software development). The main problem is logging in into the boards. These could be caused by several reasons:

- Your browser cache & cookies need to be cleared because we moved to a new server. If you get the error message whilst logging: "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.", you need to clear your cache & cookies. You can find a "Delete cookies" option at the bottom of this page.

- There is also a chance that your password is not correctly converted to the new system. This is a known bug with migrating the system. The only solution is to request a new password, there's a link on the form that will send an email to you to create a new password. If that fails, I can set a password for you, you can contact us at the "Contact us" link at the bottom of the page.

Christophe died today, 16 april 2020. He was a terrific musician and wrote some amazing stuff. Worked with Jean-Michel in the 70s, was part of the Electronica 2 project and he worked with Dominique Perrier even longer, he even had a band with Perrier and Roger Rizzitelli.

Do yourself a favour and jump in the amazing musical back catalogue of Christophe Bevilacqua.

He died of the Covid-19 virus.

Amazing artist. His album Bevilacqua (1996) was ahead of its time. While his most famous songs (apart from Aline and Les marionnettes) are from the period when he worked with JMJ (Les paradis perdus - 1973, and Les mots bleus - 1974) his most recent albums are fantastic and showcase very different styles: Les vestiges du Chaos (2016, with the title song co-written with JMJ), Aimer ce que nous sommes (2008) and Comm' si la terre penchait (2001). As Dr_Jones rightly mentioned, do yourself a favor and listen to his albums. And, no, you don't need to speak French to "get it".
