V/A - Chaos En France Vol 1 & 2

From what I've been able to learn, France was popular for the 'skunk' sound. A fusion of 'skin' & 'punk'. Whatever you want to call it, here's a 2 Disc compilation from the green fields of France that features some good, French Punk Rock.

Chaos En France


  1. Hi doc
    Is "skunk" a word of yours ?,because I never heard or seen this term before.
    Everybody knows we had some great singles : 84 , guilty razors , gazoline ...
    In a similar vein , there is a good comp whose name is "paris mix". Easily googlesiable I guess.
    If you can't find it , ask me

    1. Honestly François, I had never heard that term either. I lifted it from a MRR review I found on KFTH, here:

      Thanks for the info, I need to keep searching!

  2. I think I have this comp. somewhere on my hard drive.

  3. skunks was used fair bit in England in the early 80s - for bands like Blitz who were half punk/ half skins - pretty sure there was a club in London even called skunx

    all bit daft really
