Reading the Deity Guns thread, I just wanted to know what french bands you guys know. Of course from the exterior it might appear that not loads of great french bands exist (except from the very known electronic acts, like Daft Punk, Air or Justice) - which is actually true, there is not really loads of great great bands up there, though there is a great math rock scene -, so I thought I'd also give you a few bands I recommand to you, alphabetically and without any genre classification:

37500 Yens (math-rock / hardcore)
Aside From A Day (hardcore)
Binaire (electro/noise/punk)
Cercueil (strange electro)
Cheval de Frise (math-rock)
Chevreuil (math-rock)
Gâtechien (math-rock)
Gomm (post-punk)
Marvin (noise-rock)
L'Objet (math-rock with a cold-wave touch)
Pneu (math-rock)
Principles Of Geometry (electronica)
Rhesus (pop/rock)
Sweet Apple Pie (psychedelic pop)

Those are new bands, I think you guys probably already know classic french bands (Thugs, Bästärd, Sister Iodine...), but I don't know if you know Diabologum; if you don't check them (album: #3) and the two bands that came after they split, Experience and Programme, because they're really good

I don't listen to many French bands (I'm more into singers like Gainsbourg), not mentionned are Ulan Bator (who I discovered thanks to nicfit).

I should listen to Ulan Bator, I've already seen them mentionned lots of time and actually listen to Permanent Fatal Error, Olivier Manchion's new project, so I think I'll like it. I'll check

I love him to no end.
I even have his cell number.
there's the new pfe ep streaming on last fm.
the last song is recoded in a weird way, makes your head feel like it's shrinking.

here's a pic I took at a Cargo Cult's gig:

April March is American but sings in French and is significantly more popular in France than in her homeland, or anywhere else. I don't know if she lives there. Anyway, I like her songs.
