I really love the raw punk-pop energy of their early releases. They sound vibrant! I don't consider the famous Momus' claim that S-T were the best band in the world an exageration. They still probably are.

La Musique Automatique is all I need to listen to ever.

eight months pass...
"Do the Bambi" comes out on January 25th. I'm relatively excited for 3 to 5 very fun pop songs.

I was supposed to write a song for it but couldn't be arsed. Or rather, I think I didn't want an album from the best band in the world spoiled by having one of my compositions on it.

two years pass...

I kinda gave up on them, but I'm tempted to pick up the new one. Any insight?

First listen says that it's pretty good, in line w/the reviews I've read.

dlp9001, Thursday, 18 October 2007 13:49 (thirteen years ago) link

have not heard it, read no reviews, i suspect that it's brilliant

A new one? I hadn't even heard about this. Is it out on vinyl/in the UK?

emil.y, Thursday, 18 October 2007 14:03 (thirteen years ago) link

'Paris-Berlin'. I think it's been out for a while. P'fork hails it as a "return to form" and, after the disappointment of 'Do the Bambi', I'm ready to believe.

thirteen years pass...

RIP Françoise Cactus, who has died in Berlin at the age of 57 after a long illness.

i revisited their first 4 albums quite recently; still great. i lost track when we hit the 20th century so open to checking out any essential ones i have missed.

she was super great on stage too.
