Les Breastfeeders | Les Matins De Grands Soirs

Take the Les Breastfeeders Challenge? The next time you have a lengthy drive, pop in Les Breasfeeders new album Les Matins De Grands Soirs and start driving. You're guaranteed to arrive 25% earlier than you ever have before or your money back.

The Montreal quintet's sophomore release is frantic. That's the best way to put it. Frantic. They hook electrodes to your pulse from the first beats and don't let go until the disc is over. However, this isn't speed metal or something inaccessible. They've loaded this pop punk disc up with a million hooks.

The only thing I can't vouch for is the lyrics. I don't understand French. So, they could be singing about some crazy shit and I would have no idea.

The other tough thing about this album is getting it. It's not on eMusic or iTunes and I couldn't find a US distributor. So, I bought it from It took three weeks for the friggin' thing to clear customs. See, the terrorists have already won when we have to wait three weeks to get the latest Breastfeeders album.

They have a few southern Quebec shows coming up too.

Sherbrooke, QC @ Café Du Palais (with Xavier Caféïne)

Thursday, October 05, 2006
Montreal, QC @ Cabaret du Musée Juste Pour Rire (Bonsound turns 2 at Pop Montreal)

Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, QC @ Bar Le Metric

Sunday, November 12, 2006
Montreal, QC @ Maison de la Culture Maisonneuve (Francouvertes 10th anniversary)

The Sherbrooke show would be ideal for folks in the Northeast Kingdom and the Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu show would be fab for folks in Montpelier and Burlington. Unfortunately, I'll be out of town for my parents 50th wedding anniversary during those shows. I wish my folks had planned their wedding date better back in 1956. Just kidding, Mom & Dad. I love ya. But wouldn't the following weekend have been better?

Let's see. 13. Tu n'est pas mon chien means "you are not my dog" & 9. Le roi est nu means "the king is naked". Sounds pretty harmless.

Thanks for the tip-in.

The fellow who writes 11 A.M. Air Raid had also tipped me off to the first one being called "You Are Not My Dog" which sparked speculation that the song is a response to Iggy's "I Wanna Be Your Dog".

Perhaps I should email the band and see if it is or not.

Is this a new CD they have out as opposed to the one you burned for me?

Brand spanking new, my friend.
