Fun fun fun

LES HOMMES SAUVAGES "Autobahn"
Here's a real treat, an unreleased track by Berlin-based supergroup Les Hommes Sauvages, which just might be my personal favorite Kraftwerk cover. I think that might be Chris Spedding on guitar but I'm not sure (he played on some of these sessions with the band, ca. 2000.) General personnel info. is as follows: Viola Limpet - vocals / guitars, Kristof Hahn - guitars / vocals, Thomas Wydler - drums, Adrian Horcher - bass, Eric LeMarechal - trumpets. The tune is not gonna be up for long so grab it now.

What does "Les Hommes Sauvages" mean? I always wanted to learn a foreign language, but I guess in hindsight, I'm lucky to know what I know.

I remember that guy Christof used to hang on the Lower East Side back in the late 80's/early 90's in the very early Ludlow days. Pre-Max Fish even... Wasn't he in like, the Swans?

Hello there,

To Bernice "Les hommes sauvages" means "the wild men" in french. And your double looking image is also french and was drawn during the end of the 19th century in Paris during the "Belle époque".

Other wise wanted to say : great site ! thanks !

I was wonering if you'd put an rss feed (not Atom !) on your site so I could listen to it everyday ! (feedburner to do the feed)

Thanks !

check out the band's website - www.les-hommes-sauvages.org - there's some more pretty cool stuff available (go to "playtime"). Also you'll find out that Spike is right, the singer used to be in the Swans
