WC3 - musique moderne


WC means "3 in the toilets". They were a band from St Quentin in the north of France.They have began in 1978 for a punk festival in Lesdin. They have produced their 1rst 7" in 1979 on their own label "Vinyl Humide". Their first 12" was a 45 rpm with 6 titles, out in 1981. It would be called "Captain valium" but CBS records fear that the text encourage to commit suicide and fear a trial because Valium was a trade mark. So the title was changed in "Poupée bebop". After that they produced 2 albums: "musique moderne" in 1982 and "la machine infernale" in 1984. 3 singles were took out of each 12": "poupée bebop", "derniers baisers du vautour" and "cadillac" with a Rolling Stone cover (2000 lights years from home). During 1984 Jeannine died and the band stop.
