Music career

Early work and Two Man Sound

His first group Pop' Liberty 6 had a complete flop in 1967 with "Je Suis Pop Et Tout À Fait Dingue". However he later found success with Two Man Sound, a Latin-pop outfit formed with Sylvain Vanholme of the Wallace Collection and Yvan Lacomblez. Two Man Sound sold over a million copies of their 1975 single "Charlie Brown" while the album Disco Samba, with the eponymous song, had sales of around 1.4 million copies in Latin America.

He also had a major 1978 solo success in France and Belgium with ska/reggae song "Kingston, Kingston", under the moniker Lou & The Hollywood Bananas.

Plastic Bertrand and Viktor Lazlo

In the English-speaking world, Deprijck's best known hit was "Ça plane pour moi", which he recorded and sang for Plastic Bertrand, who remains generally credited for the song (and was upheld legally in 2006 as being entitled to be called its artist). In fact, Deprijck was also the "voice" of Plastic Bertrand's first four albums. In 2006, a Belgian appeal court ruled that Bertrand was the "legal performer" of the classic track, but the ruling was overturned in 2010.

In the 1980s, Deprijck was also the creative force behind the success of Viktor Lazlo, born Sonia Dronier, whom he met at Le Mirano nightclub in Brussels.[11] She initially did backing vocals for Lou & the Hollywood Bananas before taking the name Viktor Lazlo from a character in the 1942 film Casablanca at Deprijck's suggestion. He produced the self-titled album Viktor Lazlo in 1987 for her, as well as the album Hot & Soul in 1989.

In 1984, calling himself Lou Van Houten, Deprijck released the album Collures with Boris Bergman under the pseudonym Les Epatants.

Later life in Thailand

He resided largely near Pattaya, Thailand. The story of his life in Thailand was shown in the VTM TV channel documentary Vlamingen in Pattaya (Flemings in Pattaya) as part of the Belgian news program Telefacts.
