Boum Garage

Garage party, Brussels, Belgium, 1977.

When I was in high school, parties were held in garages. That electrified us. Hormones and pheromones exploded, maybe that’s why we called it booms”. Between LPs and Cubalibres, differences, even of size, vanished. And the black grim counter rotating in our backs, we did not care, as we only had the taste for the present in our mouths.

Au temps du lycée, les soirées se faisaient dans les garages. Ça nous électrisait. Hormones et phéromones explosaient, d’ailleurs on appelait ça des « boums ». Entre vinyles et Cubalibre, les différences, même de taille, disparaissaient. Et l'hideux compteur noir qui tourne dans notre dos, on s’en fichait, nous n’avions que le présent à la bouche.
