Maybe they don't need one?

Mark (MarkR), Sunday, 11 April 2004 17:11 (seventeen years ago) link

they're slightly better than I Am The World Trade Center, but not much

I saw 'em live in Boston once. Cute band. I used "C'est La Mort" in a student film once. Can't say any of their albums strike me as crucial but they'd have a decent "hits" comp.

i have a lot of great memories associated with "jukebox alarm"

That song "Holiday Innn" is pure pop genius. Grotty key sound, craptacular beat, sexy lyrics/delivery that aren't too overplayed, and a chorus that sounds like it was shouted by a squad of slutty French cheerleaders who barely stopped smoking in time to make it to the mic for their cue.

"crazy horse" is purer pop genius though

One of those bands you love the first time you hear them, but get sick of real quick.

David Allen (David Allen), Tuesday, 13 April 2004 03:24 (seventeen years ago) link

pure pop genius, full stop.

I bought this sweet 'Holiday Inn' 2x7" set which drips with pure fun when on my speakers, so for that alone I love them.

Barima (Barima), Tuesday, 13 April 2004 12:32 (seventeen years ago) link

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.

Matt Boch (Matt Boch), Friday, 24 December 2004 15:01 (sixteen years ago) link

goody for you. it will be fantastic, of course, thoguh i am not sure i approve of more songs in english for the americans.

keith m (keithmcl), Friday, 24 December 2004 15:53 (sixteen years ago) link

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.

Momus (Momus), Sunday, 26 December 2004 01:23 (sixteen years ago) link

two years pass...

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

baaderonixx, Thursday, 18 October 2007 12:27 (thirteen years ago) link

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

Tracer Hand, Thursday, 18 October 2007 14:00 (thirteen years ago) link

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.

baaderonixx, Thursday, 18 October 2007 14:57 (thirteen years ago) link

thirteen years pass...

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

Why? My favourite by them is their "Orange Mécanique"

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.

stirmonster, Wednesday, 17 February 2021 18:48 (two months ago) link

:((((( RIP

Jeff W, Wednesday, 17 February 2021 20:46 (two months ago) link

Musique Automatique is 2001, so that one for starters, stirmonster

Jeff W, Wednesday, 17 February 2021 20:50 (two months ago) link

stirmonster, Wednesday, 17 February 2021 21:45 (two months ago) link

Rip Francoise. Had been relistening to
Monokini and Musique Automatique recently. So much fun
