For more than a decade Frenchy and the Punk, the quirky duo based in New York’s Hudson Valley, have been On tour for the new album ‘Hooray Beret’! For more than a decade Frenchy and the Punk, the quirky duo based in New York’s Hudson Valley, have been refining their own voice in many quadrants of the Balkanized post-punk world. They have essentially invented their own genre in which punk vitality and drive meets an evocative, cinematic way with exotic melodies and European-inflected percussive textures.
A founding member of Deep Wound with J Mascis and Lou Barlow (Dinosaur jr), Helland weaves dark riffs and layers of spidery melody in an acoustic/electric tone that is entirely his own.
French-born singer Stephenson sings with a gothy heft and authority that may remind one generation of Siouxsie Sioux and another of Grace Slick.
They have been touring across the US and in Europe since 2005. 2019 saw the release of their 6th album, Hooray Beret whose message of independence and the shedding of socially imposed identities is well-earned. Favorites at alternative music festivals including Steampunk, Dark Cabaret, Pagan and FaerieFest events.
