Têtes Raides: Acoustic

A new edition of Acoustic, the music show on TV5Monde, this time featuring veteran rock act Têtes Raides.

Despite being around since the 1980s,  Têtes Raides are a band that have developed into something quite unique and remain a vital and invigorating act.

From their punk beginnings they've matured into an act that embrace a style that perhaps has more in common with the classic French chanson, with work that's intelligent, musically astute but accessible at the same time.

Their most recent release is their Terriens album, which came out in February this year.

Songs they played in the Acoustic session include Alice, Moderato, Des Silences, Les Terrienes and Oublie-moi .

Although all the songs feature on their most recent collection, it's the kind of session that would inspire you to check out that band's back catalogue immediately.
