French is a punk rock band formed in NYC in 1996. They pride themselves on writing short songs. Led by brilliant songwriter and guitarist Ian James, French has intentionally spurned the music industry and most publicity in general. They will speak only to Jack Rabid, who declared them "New York's best band" and runs the influential magazine "The Big Takeover".
Their music is a playful melange of old school punk rock, post-punk, and pop, with a dose of self-conscious sarcasm, heavy on the guitars. For info on the side project of Darren Hayman (ex-Hefner) please see The French..Make French Playlist
