The Friday OT: Noir Désir; L'homme pressé

The current USA election scenario nudged a memory earlier in the week and I went to check out the song after years away. It's still strong and fresh, quality French rock, good video, I like the boyband bit in the middle.

This was recorded at the height of Noir Désir's fame, before singer Bertrand Cantat fell from grace in 2003*. The music survives.

*If you need to know, Wikipedia has the story. It's not a nice one.
