Ludwig Von 88

Profile:
French punk and alternative rock band formed in 1984 and disbanded in 1999.
The goal of the band was to shock the punk audience by doing satirical and ironic songs (with characters like Oui-Oui/Noody, Louison Bobet, Pocahontas, Mr Spock, Jacques Chirac...), playing delirious shows with confetti and funny clothing (cycling jerseys, diving suits, Mexican ponchos, ...) and mixing various elements in their punk rock (ska, raggamuffin, dub, medieval music, ...)

Great band unfairly recognised despite their high level intelligent reference and innovative musical approach.

It is a great band.
Just listen to "New Orleans" lyrics, and you'll see they can also give great poetry.

Well, Explosetoi...in my opinion, you're making short-shortcut, telling that Ludwig's lyrics are about "sucking"...You can't resume Ludwig Von 88 with the song "Houlala " It's the same as if you were to say, that The Doors are singing "Viens Bébé Allume Mon Feu" in English, with the singer rubbing his underbelly... There's one song called Fist Fuck Playa Club, which is joking about sex...All other songs are just Jokes...At that time, in france, there were Two main alternative groups: Berrurier Noir, and Ludwig Von 88. The first ones (B.N.), were more political as LV 88. This last were more humoristic, in their lyrics. And, no, they were not yelling all the time, but full of irony....
