Artist: Francese del Brano
Title: L’Anarchie Pour Le UK
Cover: ‘Anarchy in the U.K.’ by The Sex Pistols
I shall be honest. Musically, I consider The Sex Pistols to be a pub rock band. There, I’ve said it. Thankfully, they spawned a plethora of excellent bands who really knew the meaning of punk, and for that I am grateful. A version of ‘Anarchy In The U.K.’ in French, with accordians (accordians!), is a fabulous smack in the face to the Malcolm McLaren staged, anarchy-by-numbers, gimmicky, money-driven charade of a band that sang the original. Félicitations, monsieur!
