A first visit to Manchester for Les Bof! - a Scottish quartet playing French garage-punk on a German label, Les Bof! “sound like a psychedelic, trippy blend of The Kinks swapping chat-up lines on a cultural school exchange with Jacque Dutronc.” The List (Edinburgh)
“Look no further to satisfy your 1960s French language garage-rock needs than this sharply attired combo from Edinburgh, fronted by the super suave Laurent Mombel and featuring members of the cult beat revivalists The Thanes and Preston Pfanz & the Seaton Sands.” Their debut album “recorded in their own custom-built studio for that authentic period fuzz, is le dernier cri in distorted guitars, groovy go-go dance, percussive safari, crunchy mod stomp and 13th Floor Elevatoresqu bluesy psych.” The Scotsman
“Scotland’s premier Francophone retro-garage outfit the full pelt sounds will delight admirers of The Kinks early work and Billy Childish’s oeuvre as well as those that just like to get their yé-yé’s out” Mojo
‘BOF!’ literally translates as `don’t care!' or `not interested!' but this is not a group without interest, but a group universally rejected by the established order - a situation, we are sure, you all know too well and with which you can only sympathize.
