"Seven virtuoso troubadours, Les Bonbons perform vagabond pop that resonates with a shimmering wall of sound, pumped up with strings, brass and a choir of charismatic song.
Their tunes stagger and swagger the streets of old London town, leaning on the murmured bon mots, sometimes sung, sometimes whispered, of vocalist Fred.
Meanwhile, guitarist Billy jives like Django, with a rock’n’roll swing here, a campside flourish there.
Like a Franglais mash-up of The Divine Comedy or a Gallic Jarvis Cocker at a gypsy jazz bacchanal, Les Bonbons are an enthralling and intense proposition, as appropriate a soundtrack for your wake as your wedding, provided the mood is celebratory, sincere and there’s more than a little absinthe to hand. Magnifique, mes amis, magnifique."
