Another month behind us at Vive le roq, and a busy month it was indeed.
October saw another torrent of posts, as much a reflection on the amount and quality of releases.
November also looks like being a busy month, with a number of key releases in the run-up to Christmas.
Two of France's indisputably most commercially significant acts Mylène Farmer and Johnny Hallyday both have new albums coming out this month, with just one week between them.
November also sees the NRJ music awards, which although the most international of the French music awards ceremonies, will certainly have more attention than usual with Mylène Farmer expected to make an appearance.
I can be contacted on johnkilbrideAThotmailDOTcom, with the appropriate punctuation where you'd expect it to be. I'm always pleased to hear from record companies, PR companies and promoters, so do get in touch.
We're also on Twitter as @viveleroq or you can find me at @karnag
If you're around Facebook, remember to like the French Music Podcast UK page, for a regular dose of fresh and vintage French music.
Thanks as always to the French Music Office in London and to the Institut francais in London for their help and encouragement.
Merci et à bientôt
