21 years and over
The "seven-headed beast from the hard-scrabble streets of Menilmontant" and "those frilly Parisian underthings," Les Sans Culottes borrowed their name from the ill-clad (i.e., long-trousered) citizen- soldiers of the French Revolution. The band's sound is a melange of Francophone 60's girl group and the Kinks.
The band has released six recordings: "Les Sans Culottes"; "The Ennui and the Ecstasy"; "Faux Realism"; "Full Frontal Crudite'- Live in Paris"; "Fixation Orale"; "Le Weekender," and on September 8, 2011, "Pataphysical Graffiti. "
