Today their lead singer Manu Chao has a relatively succesfull solo career, but I still prefer their breakthrough album Puta's fever.
It has witty lyrics in French (Pas assez de toi, La rançon du succès) as well as Spanish and even Arabic sung songs. It has punch, a sort of gypsy punk attitude, but also downtempo songs that touch your heart.
Enjoy these songs :
- Rock 'n roll band (mp3)
- King kong five (mp3)
- Sidi h' bibi (mp3)
- El sur (mp3)
