Album Info

altFrom Quebec, this act were formed in 1962 and were originally known as Les Coronets. Their first 45 was a cover of the Jessie Hill classic Ooh Poo Pah Doo coupled with a original of lead guitarrist Gerry Bribosia, Pourquoi. They followed this with a tough garage-punk cover of the Rolling Stones' Tell Me (Elle Me Dit). Indeed, in their early days they very much took the look and attitude of the 'Stones. They've also cited The Animals and The Yardbirds as later influences. By now they had become a popular attraction at school dances around the Montreal area. They had a wild stage act and live performed songs like Tobacco Road, Satisfaction, Johnny B. Goode and Midnight Hour in English, but Jupiter Records decided that all their recorded output should be in the French language. The 'B' side to Elle Me Dit, Vivre Avec Toi was a tough garage tune, but their magnum opus was Brisbosia's Chemise A Pois, Cravates A Fleur. The fuzz-drenched R'n'B number in the best garage traditions gave them a national hit (six of their seven 45s were local hits). In 1967 they released their album, which contained eleven cuts, ten originals and one cover. It blended garage-punk, R'n'B, beat and pop ballads. Poorly promoted and distributed, it didn't sell well, although retrospectively it's recognised to have been one of the very best French Canadian albums of the era, second only to the most sought-after French Canadian punk/psychedelic album by Les Differents. Many of the tracks are driving garage-punk songs, the pick of these are the Kinks-influenced Miserablement Votre and Chemises A Pois, Cravates A Fleur, which has some good fuzz guitar moments. Other tracks of note are Vivre Avec Toi, which has a rather melodramatic introduction and with incisive guitar work and snarling vocals, Toi Qui Es Jeune, which starts off rather unusually with spoken vocals over a rather sparse backing. A pretty good standard is maintained throughout. All vocals are in French but you don't need fluent French to appreciate it. Recommended.
