BINGO! French Punk Exploitation 1978-1981/ PAINK – French Punk Anthems 1977-1982


”In the face of Plastic Bertrand’s huge success ‘Ça Plane Pour Moi’, big labels in France thought they understood how it worked. Very soon, music publishers and majors all wanted a punk hit. Barclay, RCA, Polydor… all of ’em wanted their own ‘Ça Plane Pour Moi’. Sure, most of these punk hoaxes are as lousy as it gets, but one must admit that some of these cuts managed to stand out and surprise.”

More French punk in these two Born Bad Records comps. While Bingo! is punk exploitation oriented collection with many tunes you could already hear on ”Je Suis Punk” lp [Bingo! has improved sound quality], Paink deals with more angry real punks. Anyways, both comps have great sound + Surfadelic bonus with Guilty Razors ’78. Ep, Warm Gun ’77. single and more punk surprises. And now en français: Vive Le Punk!

  1. Paink was released for the exhibition “Europunk” at Cité de la Musique (Paris – October 2013 / January 2014).
    Gilles Tandy => Olivensteins & Gloires Locales
    Eric Tandy (also writer for Olivensteins) => Nouveaux Riches (with 2 future Dogs)
    Dogs from Rouen like bands above.

    For me Coronados is a mistake to be on this comp… Definitively not a Punk band and not from the 70’s, as all the rest come from.

    Both covers of these comps (Paink & Bingo) were made by Bazouka collective (Kiki & Loulou Picasso) who design also these two other ones issued at the end of the seventies by Skydog Rds:
    Both are French punk anthology issued in 1978.

    Sorry, to complete this comment i have to say that Soul Jazz Rds issued in 2016, this one in the same veine:
    Great post.

    • Hi Fred, great big thanx for Skydog stuff, extensive info and once more for Born Bad comps tip. Somehow omitted Gerard Depardieu – ”La Petite Agathe” in Bingo! Now that’s fixed. Bingo! is my fav. Cheers!


  2. Hello,

    Thanks Mr. Eliminator for your post and Fred for your comments. I’m OK with you for the Coronados (even they are a great group !)
    For completing the Bingo’s compilation, here a link for a missing track (Gérard Depardieu “La P’tite Agathe”, normally track 14 of the collection) :
    Jean-Jacques, Marseilles, France
