Song of the Day: Ou Est Le Swimming Pool – Dance The Way I Feel

Toronto – One of the more tragic stories in the music industry last year was the tale of Ou Est Le Swimming Pool. An electro rock dance band that had released a few stellar singles and played some well esteemed festivals, the Camden group was well on their way to success. However, that promise came to a halt when lead singer Charles Haddon leapt to his death from a telecommunications mast behind the main stage at the Pukkelpop festival. Apparently he was distressed after injuring a girl on an ill advised stage dive (resulting in the girl being taken off on a stretcher). It is a sad story and makes you wonder about the dangers of ill advised stage dives at any given show.

I have been listening to a Triple J compilation this week and the inclusion of this song made me think about the story of this band, and what might have been.
