Every show starts with the ’70s! We’ll rediscover forgotten rockers, revisit unfairly maligned disco beats and replay power-pop favorites. Next: plenty of new releases, occasional live bands and more. Don’t let the nickname confuse you.
May 18, 2010: EVERYBODY WAS IN THE FRENCH RESISTANCE... NOW! live set! Plus, RIP Ronnie James Dio
Everybody Was In The French Resistance... Now! was formed by Eddie Argos of Art Brut and Dyan Valdes of The Blood Arm to "correct the mistakes of pop songs past." As such, their new album is called Fixing The Charts (Cooking Vinyl), and includes such responses to past chart-toppers as "G.I.R.L.F.R.E.N. (You Know I've Got A)," "Hey! It's Jimmy Mack," and the song that ostensibly tells the story of the band's origin, "Creeque Allies" (pronounced like the WWII alliance, not like the plural of "Alley"). The songs are just clever enough without being cloying, and will be enjoyed by fans of Art Brut, Soft Cell and pop music aficionados at large. Catch Everybody Was In The French Resistance... Now! live as they complete their US tour! Dates are on their myspace page.
