I don't remember the french scene being so vibrant since... I don't remember !
Amongst the hordes of Libertines/Strokes influenced Teens, a lot of good bands are coming :
1. 10LEC6 : so unfrench they have released records everywhere but in France.
2. THIS IS POP : no it isn't, but it's ace !
3. ASYL : dark pop produced by an ex Gang of four
4. MARCH THE 6TH : Dutronc meets the Kills !
5. FRUSTRATION : the 8Os are back !
6.( Yes I'm cheating... ) PUT IT ON TAPE
Give them a listen...
