Les Thugs - As Happy As Possible
Fine wine, good food and Les Thugs - 3 French contributions to popular culture. I am a fan of all 3. So much so that last time I went on holiday to France I endeavoured to eat in a restaurant owned by that famous French gastronome Sid Owen AKA Ricky Butcher from Eastenders.
It was a particularly bad meal. As you may have guessed. Bloody Ricky!
Here's Les Thugs' double album from 1993 'As Happy As Possible' to wash the bad taste out of my mouth. It's a bit of a sprawler, but stick with it and check out songs like 'Admen' 'Looking In Your Eyes' and 'You Wanna Die' - awesome stuff. So popular it was released by Sub Pop, Vinyl Solution and Roadrunner, those sneaky Frenchies!
