Belgian singer Plastic Bertrand denies allegations over hit song | Music | The Guardian

Belgian singer Plastic Bertrand denies allegations over hit song. Evidence suggests Euro-punk star may not have sung on original recording of ‘Ça plane pour moi‘.

[…]

According to a linguistician commissioned by a Belgian judge to examine the original recording of Ça Plane Pour Moi and compare it with a version released in 2006 by Bertrand’s former producer, the singer of the 1977 track spoke with a distinctive twang that would not have come naturally to the Brussels-born front-man. “With the endings of sentences on the tapes the voice can only belong to a Ch’ti or a Picard,” read the judgment, implying the true singer must have originated from north-eastern France, an area which produced both the Picard dialect and the affectionately mocked Ch’ti patois.
