Its sad you've never heard of them, if you have you know

(5 out of 5 stars)

"As of this release Les Thugs became the longest band to be signed with Sub Pop- kinda like it flagship band (think about that fans of nirvana). Les Thugs are (were? are you guys still out there?) a french band that sing (mostly) in english. A second language band that had more energy and politics then most american bands. They formed back in the early 80's, but claimed they all knew each other and played together since the late 70's. They influenced an entire generation of french kids who would have otherwise never ben esposed to underground rock/hardcore/alternative whatever you want to call it-that music that wasn't being played on the radio back in the 80's and early 90's but came back in spades later. While Sub Pop is kinda off the map as a record company now, Les Thugs are M.I.A. too. This is the last disc that i know they put out almost 10 years ago. For a band this good it's criminal how unknown they are. They are almost entirely unknown outside the punk history scene. Wonder where they are today."
