Back from you know where, at last.
But given how little real rock'n'roll has ever been produced in that Socialist Hellhole, it seems only fitting that we close the book on our annual voyage with the exception that proves the rule. So -- from 1978, please enjoy surprisingly convincing roots rock Frenchies passing for punk Little Bob Story and the pretty damned good "Little Big Boss."
The song itself is from Off the Rails, the 1977 debut LP by Little Bob (nee Roberto Piazza), produced by the redoubtable Sean Tyla of Ducks Deluxe pub rock fame. On Stiff Records, where it belonged, actually (the Frenchie title was Livin' In The Fast Lane.) The petite little guy is still at it, apparently (here's his non-English website, for those who care); two of his import CDs can be found at American Amazon as well.
You don't want to know the kind of crap that passes for pop music in France at the moment, BTW....
