Moderne

Profile:
Moderne was founded in 1979 in Tours, south of Paris.

For their 1980 release, 'Moderne', the line up was:
- Gérard Lévy, composer and producer
- Thierry Teyssou, songwriter and producer
- Bernard Guimond, singer
- Patrick Millerioux, video artist

For their next two releases, the line up was:
- Gérard Lévy, composer and producer
- Thierry Teyssou, composer, songwriter, singer and producer
- Dominique Marchetti, singer
- Patrick Millerioux, video artist

Their second two releases were recorded at their own studio, and mixed at a Dusseldorf studio which was used by Kraftwerk for their first two albums.

The band played an all synths music with french lyrics in a cold and poppy way. Talk about "french Kraftwerk" would be a bit abusive because they did not experiment with synths.
