2000: Socadisc 871006
This is kind of an oddity in my collection, and I only hang onto it because Im not sure how I feel about it. As far as I can tell its a studio recording by a fairly polished busker band that plays around Pariss underground stations; the music ranges from bland to corny with a few better bits here and there, but maybe its just the excessively clean and synthesized-instrumentation production, robbing it of any feeling of depth, that keeps me from enjoying it at all.
Thats the kind of dilemma I have about it. I believe I originally got it thinking that it was Métro-related music from throughout the 100 years of the undergrounds existence, but actually its all original tunes by this group except for one Serge Gainsbourg song (Le Poinçonneur des Lilas) Can anyone tell me more about this CD or this group?
