Despite his absence from France, Polnareff's new music remained present in French popular culture and continued to chart through the mid-'80s, until he removed himself entirely from the public eye and quietly returned to France to work on a new album.

Re: France - One song per day. Well, bravo, for exploring the artists of France in more depth.
Perhaps when you're done I'll look after Canada. I couldn't even name acts here, good or bad, but I admired those guys' resolve Upon their first meeting, they were inseparable, talking until they realized they should start the band together. Ringer decided to take on lyrical duties, while Chichin became the resident instrumentalist.
They debuted later that year, with Ringer on the organ and Chichin on guitar, while everything else was prerecorded. Around this time they also drafted Jean Naplin into the mix, although he was never a member; he contributed songs to most of their albums and became a frequent collaborator.
They realized early that the chemistry they had developed did not translate well to other musicians, thus they decided to keep the group a duo. They performed around Europe, playing several clubs and bars until finally playing under the name les Rita Mitsouko for the first time in November of They were a very popular live act at the time, and they collaborated with other artists often, most notably with playwright Armando Llamas before his death in The band signed to Virgin Records in , giving them their first opportunity to release a single.
The B-side of the record, "Don't Forget the Nite," became a surprise radio hit and was re-released as the A-side soon after. They moved to Cologne and began recording their eponymous debut album, and by the end of the album was out and "La Jalousie" and "Marcia Baila" became big hits in Europe. Ensuing tours with the Smiths and Kid Creole revealed their growing popularity, and by they were ready to record their second album.
Filmmaker Jean-Luc Goddard filmed the process, resulting in the oddball documentary Soigne Ta Droite, which is of interest chiefly because of the unreleased material that appears on the soundtrack.
Producer Tony Visconti was brought in, and the recording process was moved to England to finish the project. The No Comprendo was finally released at the end of the year to a big reception, making them one of the hottest bands in Europe and winning them many music awards. The band moved to New York in early to hold auditions for a live band. The following tour, which covered most of Europe, was an enormous success and led to the eventual re-launching of La Cigale, an old theater that the band enjoyed.
During the tour they also made friends with Sparks, who invited them to collaborate at some point in the future.
Musicians like Boy George and Michael Hutchence voiced their interest in working with the group, but these projects failed to go anywhere and the band just moved ahead to the next album. Marc et Robert was the next album, written mostly in the studio, and featuring songs written and performed with Sparks.
Another tour followed, leading to the construction of the band's new studio in their home. By , they decided to release a remix album Re and perform a month-long engagement at La Cigale.
The performances were so successful that the two agreed to prolong the appearance, staying until January of It was then that they realized that they wanted to record their albums on-stage at La Cigale, leading to the construction of an elaborate recording setup in the theater.
They began work on the album in , eventually releasing Systeme D in November of A live album was released next, Acoustiques, which sparked another tour through Eastern Europe.
Their records were properly released to America in , and following a quiet period they reappeared in with the Cool Frenesie album. They released their sixth studio album, La Femme Trombone in and a live album entitled En Concert avec l'Orchestre Lamoureux in In , the duo released what would unfortunately be their last album together.
After the release of the seventh studio album, Variety, Chichin died from cancer. Ringer continued under her own name and released the live album Chante Les Rita Mitsouko and more a la Cigalle in Last edited by Romain on Tue Dec 20, pm, edited 7 times in total. The band played directly alongside such legendary acts as Marquis de Sade in the French '80s cult bands club.
Their manager, Alexis, built a whole legend around Darc and his crew, especially after Darc cut his own wrists on-stage when opening for Talking Heads.
Their first album, Seppuku, produced by the Stranglers' Jean-Jacques Burnel and recorded with the help of drummer Jet Black also of the Stranglers showcased a fully grown romantic new wave band at the height of their powers.
But drummer Pierre Wolfsohn's death by drug overdose precipitated the band's end, though the Darc-Mirwais core kept on recording a handful of singles and mini-LPs before both going solo.
Darc had a slowly but amazingly growing career, and Mirwais when on successfully in the production field to the point where he got to produce Madonna albums in the s.

Her albums were commendably wide-ranging, and undeniably erratic. She could employ African tribal rhythms, discordant progressive jazz, pretty folky melodies, throat-stretching a cappella vocals, spoken poetry, and pious classical arrangements, sometimes with a stoned recklessness.
On some albums she collaborated with the less impressive male writer and singer Areski, whose rough vocals contrasted incongruously with Fontaine's sweet and mature tone.
Fontaine returned to recording in the s, around the time her vintage work slowly began to accumulate a cult following among English-speaking listeners.
And since you are the expert here on French music or French-language music in general , I also want to ask a question, Romain. This artist , is he French or Belgian? It's a cult hit here, but I can't find much information about the guy. Most prolific during the s, Moreau continues to appear in films to the present day.
