A French unit working during the late '70s, Garcons
didn't release much during the time, but their meld of tight disco and funk with punk ethics (complete with sneering vocals) wasn't approached again for almost a decade, until the vagaries of electronic music caught up with the sweet sound of the '70s. Just a duo, Patrick and Thomas released the LP Divorce
in 1979 and worked with John Cale
for a time, but weren't heard from again until almost 20 years later, when the album was reissued to an admiring dance music world. Garcons
began recording again in Paris, in association with Yellow Recordings.
