post #421 of 1048
Been listening to some old ska that I used to own but sold years ago that I re-found on soulseek

The Deltones 'nana choc choc in paris'....easily one of the best 3rd wave UK ska bands from the late 80s-early 90s. all chicks and the way ska should be played when it isn't lame modern frat boy party music.

Skarface - first 3 records......great French ska band that sings all in french but somehow it works and isn't as annoying as you'd think. They were a group of mods/skins that played ska very two-tone-ish with tons of energy and really catchy hooks. Possibly the only good thing to come out of France, musically.

Or Stereo Total for French/German.

There are plenty of classical musicians as well as the cultish Serge Gainsbourg and others.

speaking of stereolab (which is based in the UK actually), has anyone heard laetitia sadier's new band, Monade? any reviews?

Not surprisingly, they sound a lot like Stereolab. Their music on A Few Steps More isn't ground-breaking or stunning, but enjoyable in a background music/chillout kind of way.

hey, as long as it doesn't suck i'll buy anything stereolab-related.

monade is good, sounds warmer than stereolab IMO. steer clear of imitation electric piano, however.

i wanted to add Francoiz Breut-----dusty gaullic americana, think dirty 3 w/ female vox.
