France: Les Fatals Picards do 24h

by Stella Floras 54 views

Les Fatals Picards, this year's French representatives in the Eurovision Song Contest, have been very busy lately having released their fourth album Pamplemousse mécanique, performing in numerous concerts all over France and shooting a parody of the popular TV series 24h.

The band's fourth album was released in February by Warner music, it is called Pamplemousse mécanique and it follows in their usual humoristic style. You can listen to snippets of the songs here.

Judging by their heavy concert schedule till May (and beyond) it doesn't seem likely Les Fatals Picards will be doing any promo tour outside France. In April they will be performing in seven different locations from April 6 to April 28, the first one in L'Escapade, in Henin Beaumont, already sold out. For the full concert schedule and ticketing information click here.

On April 23, they will be performing live together with fellow finalists Les Wampas in Glaz'art, in Paris, for the next edition of radio L'Upperground. The show will be transmitted by FM radio stations in France as well as by webradio on May 4th, 21.00-23.00 local time.

The band have also completed a series of 25 episodes of 24 heures par second, a parody of the worldwide hit TV series 24 Hours. You can watch the videos here. (In French)

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
