Mastering Pierre & Bastien “Que du Bonheur” on Pollymaggoo Records.

Recorded by Maxime Smadja at Studio Les Thermes.

“If you were lucky enough to hear and hold dear their debut LP from last year, it won’t be hard to convince you of their lust for Wire-wrapped rhythms and those fluid French lyrics laid artfully on top of such slashing guitars and intimidating vocal harmonies, uggh, so good! Straddling the razor’s edge of late 70s French thug punk bravado and early 80s post punk into a concise and well-produced modern classic, Que Du Bonheur strikes an icy aloofness right across the board into such impeccably well-written guitar lines, all destined to stick in your head instantly. The vocals can only really be described as excruciatingly refined, deadpan yet defiant and brilliantly brutish, you can try to stave off their allure, but why even put up the effort? Tough and seductive, and swollen with cuts from all those barbed hooks, this new LP should solidify their legend even further” (Todd Killings, VICTIM OF TIME)
