Les Wampas - Never trust a Best-of

A greatest hits album released this week by French punk legends Les Wampas.

For a band who have been around so long, it's no small achievement that it's their first Best Of album.
They've been around since the early 80s, and  released their first studio album, entitled Tutti frutti, in 1986.

Since then they've carved their own idiosyncratic path led by Didier Wampas, one of the most unlikely and distinctive front men in music.

the title of the collection is of course a nod to their 2003 album  Never trust a guy who after having been a punk, is now playing electro. That album included their hit Manu Chao.

Their most recent album wsa 2014's  Les Wampas font la gueule.

The best of CD includes 27 tracks, and a special edition includes another disc of unreleased material and rarities,as well as a DVD.
