Skip the Use @ L'Album de la Semaine, Paris Feb 07 2012

setlist

French electro-rock band Skip the Use is recording famous Canal+ tv show L'Album de la Semaine to promote their latest album.
They do have a single that is played very often on french radios that sounds like Gorillaz, in fact they do sound more like a dancing and heavier version of Bloc Party with a bit of Shaka Ponk.
The singer's giving it all on stage running from one side of the stage to the other and dancin' like a maniac. He's singing in English and considering the music that they are playing they could go international, which doesn't really happen very often (read "never") with french bands.
Each song is a potential hit with some nice hooks and chorus to sing to.
Lots of up-tempo songs , they are the perfect band to see in festivals.
For the last song, the singer ask the audience to join him on stage, cool.
Musically it's not our favorite style but they've kicked asses.
Looking forward to see them on a real stage in front of a few thousands people.

Mark Lanegan's recording @ L'Album de la Semaine is on Feb 21st.
