"Born in Tunis, Tunisia, 1948, Jacqueline... recorded her first disc for Impact records; '7 heures du matin' (7:00 AM), when she was 18. Her songs combined Arab, European and American influences. Her Sixties EPs are highly prized for their garage sound. With her strong vocals, and talent for pop melodies, Jaqueline's songs are real gems that still sound fresh today."

The combo of garage crunch with her teen disdain predicts everyone from the Runaways and Nikki & The Corvettes to Bratmobile and the Donnas. Her youthful impatience with the status quo and personal declaration through rock and fashion captures the spirit of the mid-60s, and its center, London, particularly.

The Beatles had ignited a youth firestorm. London was virtually transformed overnight in its wake. Before them, young men and women were quiet junior clones of their status-obsessed parents. Designer Mary Quant snubbed the couture world of the middle-aged, pumping out bold modernist clothes for young rocking girls. She killed bouffants and prom dresses with Mod bobs and miniskirts; kickstarted boutiques on Carnaby Street and King's Road; branched into make-up kits and accessories; trailiblazed Swinging London, and reinvented the modern Fashion world as we know it. Her "five point haircut" was invented by young Vidal Sassoon. Their modern girl, with disposable cash, zest for kicks and sex, and brash futurist style would reverberate around the world as strongly as the Beatles' music. All their hallmarks are evident in our French chanteuse and her ode to awakening.
