Bad Losers – Paris Dolls!

France has never been the best place for glam rock'n'roll but there were a few jewel bands in the past. Some of you might think of The FRENCHIES in the 70s or bands like TEARS and TEASIN' BABES in the early 90s but the best French glam band in the mid-80s was undoubtedly BAD LOSERS....

These guys also love ZEKE and PETER PAN SPEEDROCK, and you... Continue Reading →
