The Fatal Interview by Les Fatals Picards

Les Fatals Picards, this year's Eurovision song Contest entrants for France, spoke to esctoday about their music, the purpose of their song, their dark secrets and much more. Ivan, the lead singer and creator of the band answered our questions boldly and he would have a message for our esteemed readers….if he could only remember what it was!

What is it that makes you so � Fatal?

I guess just our name. We're lucky with ESC because abroad our name doesn't mean anything. Our name “Fatals Picards” is not that nice in french, it has sort of a “rural” connotation, it's definitely not that glamorous. But this connotation vanishes with Eurovision and the fact that people that don't speak French don't understand our name and we're very happy with that.

Many say that you have a song that can brighten up a gloomy day. What is the secret recipe behind that?

We take that as a huge compliment because it's the purpose of our songs : make the people smile and laugh. And even if the song we've done for Eurovision is quite different from what we're doing usually, say a bit less humorous. But we've wanted a dynamic song able to gather the more people we could.

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.
