Les Ablettes

Real Name:
Les Ablettes
Profile:
In the beginning of the french eigties, in a small city of the south ouest of France, Fumel (47) less than 14 rock bands (Drei O'Clock, Angoisse, Eclipse, Brumaire, Les Taxidermistes, etc) played rock'n roll music. Les Ablettes is the most important and influencial of the city.

Pure scene rock band and quatuor known first in France for their rock version of "Tu verras" (Que Sera) in 1983 after an auto product and confidential EP (1981), the band is mostly under the influences of The Clash with also reggae influences of Linton K. Johnson.

But they had to wait five more years before being signed by a major company... Meanhwhile, they became a real power trio in 1987/88 for their first LP/CD album for Polygram (more pop than Rock) and had an intrusting success with the single "Jackie s'en fout" but they didn't have a real hit single anymore.
Anyway, they were a real good scene band, very rock and energic but they never found on record the fury of their live performances or first recordings never published.

After many live performance (1000) all over France and Europe (Greece, Austria, etc) and two more LP/CD and some singles (in 1991 "Tu dis OK" called one of the best rock single of the year for "Rock'n Folk" magazine), the band split in 2000 and in a way survived throught some dance and electronic projects like L.M.Z (Le Manifeste Zaârma/LMZ) ruled by the lead singer and leader of the band, Philo Fournier
