Great comp from the Rennes new wave/alternative scene in northwestern France. Most of the songs are in French.

Standout artists: Les Nus, UV Jets, Sax Pustuls, Mécanique Rythmique, Private Jokes

Track by track:

1. Les Nus - "Actrice": Early track from this new wave/alt rock outfit.
2. Ticket - "Nettoyage": Power pop.
3. UV Jets - "Kamikaze": New wave à la Talking Heads.
4. Mr. Hyde - "Trop Cher Pour Toi": Punky power pop.
5. Frakture - "Die Sackgase": Power pop sung in German.
6. Sax Pustuls - "Sidérant": Interestingly arranged female-fronted new wave/jazz rock.
7. Mécanique Rythmique - "Extase": Synth-pop that reminds me of fellow French act C.O.M.A. (Clinik Organik Muzak Anatomik), except the vocals are not as energetic.
8. Mickeynstein - "Mr. Jack": Retro rock 'n' roll with a horn section.
9. Albane - "Y'A Pas": Female-fronted hard rock.
10. Private Jokes - "Nutchenka": Synth/new wave sung in English. The chorused guitars give me Pretenders/Police vibes.

This is one of the best VA comp from late 70/ early 80 french rock/new wave scene. All unreleased tracks from some very elusive bands from the Rennes/Nantes scène (North west part of the country), like Myckeinsteinf of "regards" fame, Ticket, also from nantes in their early line up (just one 7" released) the amazing Private Jokes (one side of a split LP) and the upmost Frakture (also one 7" only, part of the Marquis de Sade/Marc Seberg connection as les Nus & UV jets also present here). 90% of the bands here disapearred soon after the release!
