Cover Friday: Matthieu Malon

Blog tag

Kim Wilde has released many songs during her career. Some of them have been covered by other artists. On Cover Friday, Wilde Life presents cover versions of Kim Wilde songs. This week: Matthieu Malon.

It is not entirely clear who can be credited for this cover version of Kim Wilde's 'Cambodia'. Released by Matthieu Malon, he is now also known as Laudanum.

Hidden behind the name of laudanum, he has made three electronic discs sung in English - including a nearly masterpiece, 'System: On', published in 2002 - and a series of covers that speak volumes about his eclecticism - from Kim Wilde to Sebadoh. After all the guitar work of recent editions of Cover Friday, you'll be happy to know that this track is more electronically loaded.
