Palabra Mi Amor

I am a real fan of the French Band, Shaka Ponk...They have so much really great music and videos out there, but live? They are incredible! I wanted to post something by them for a while. On the other hand, another of my very favorite French Bands was the now defunct, Perle Noire. The lead singer Bertrand Cantat wrote songs that were so intelligent and drew from so many different genres...Cantat went from being one of the most important figures in French Pop to a convict in a Bulgarian Prison.  It's a long story, involving the tragically accidental death of his girlfriend.  That was the end of Perle Noire, but he got out in 2011 and started working with Shaka Ponk and now has a very interesting band called Detroit...
