The Little Rabbits - "Yeah!" (1998)


I don't really know enough about these guys to say much here. There's not even a Wikipedia entry on them. I recently borrowed this album from a friend, ripped it and have been listening to it quite a lot.
I do know it was recorded here in Tucson. They are from Nantes, France which has become something of a "sister city" to Tucson, at least musically with many of our fine artists going there to play. This past summer a whole slew of them came here to play, including these guys' new band(s). A real cultural exchange going on. I was in New Zealand; missed the whole thing. But people talk reverently about how awesome it was.

As for the album, it's a great mix of rock, punk and turntablism. It's very cool in a very French way. Hints of trip-hop (hey it's from '98) but only insofar as it flavors the album, not that it is trip-hop.
I highly recommend this record!

This sounds cool, but the link seems to be broken. Any chance of a re-up?

One of the group leader, Federico Pellegrini, announced in October 2005 the split of the band. Part of the band is now the backing band of Katerine under the name of “Secte Machine”. Federico Pellegrini did an album with Helena Noguerra under the name of Dillinger Girl and Baby Face Nelson.
