Frantz: “They didn’t get a lot of acclaim in America, but they were huge in England and Europe; in fact, they were bigger than a lot of the other bands. They had songs that even got played on the radio, which was pretty amazing for punk bands at the time.
“They had this guy in the band, Jean-Jacques, and he drove the girls crazy because they all thought he was so sexy. He was very good looking, I admit. I remember he even posed nude on the cover of NME, so there you go [laughs]. They had this one song called Peaches that I liked a lot. It’s got the line ‘Walking on the beaches, looking at the peaches.’” [Laughs]
Weymouth: “I never got to know them at all, but we did play some shows with them. They were real crowd-pleasers in terms of a headlining band with lots of punk power.”
