    BéRURIER NOIR Biography

    French legendary punk band who have stood definitively out of the media system.
    With a minimum of ways (a rythm box, a guitar, a voice and later a saxophone), they went to the essential : pure energy, committed lyrics and independance in any case. Through the years their popularity grew bigger and bigger, so much as mainstream radios tried to organize concerts with them.

    Band members: Loran, Pascal Kung Fu, Laul, Jean-Michel Rossignol, La Titi, Michboul, Dédé (2), Tomas Heuer, Florence Duquesne, François Guillemot
    Band ex-members: , Helno Rota De Lourcqua

    Bérurier noir is a French punk band formed in Paris in 1983 by Loran (guitar), François (vocals) and Dédé (drum machine). They called themselves "noir" (black) for the color of mourning (because their first concert was planned to be also their last) and for anarchy and "Bérurier" after the character from the novels of Frédéric Dard. Instead of being an end, the success of their first show inspired them to continue. A cult band, Bérurier Noir were loved by a generation of youth and feared by concert organisers for the riots that followed their shows.

    On the one hand, Bérurier Noir's music was clearly derived from British punk rock as far as music and lyrics were concerned. Most of their songs were short, aggressive and usually based on a couple of basic power chords. Their lyrics reflected the typical concerns of punks such as the rejection of consumerism, politics and traditional social order and the anger felt by disaffected youth, tramps and outsiders in general. On the other, they added some interesting innovations. Their rhythm section consisted of a cheap drum machine, which became an essential and arguably endearing part of their sound. The frequent use of a saxophone as of the mid-eighties also set them apart from most other punk rock bands.

    They would regularly appear on record sleeves and on stage wearing clown outfits, mock police uniforms or pig masks. Their shows were a unique and highly festive cross between a punk rock concert, a grotesque circus and an anarchist rally.

    By 1985, the band had grown to include François Guillemot (vocals), Loran (guitar), Pascal kung fu (saxophone), Helno (backing vocals), Laul aka Bol (backing vocals), la grande Titi (backing vocals), la petite Titi (backing vocals).

    By 1987: François Guillemot (vocals), Loran (guitar), Masto (saxophone), Helno (backing vocals), Laul aka Bol (backing vocals), la grande Titi (backing vocals), la petite Titi (backing vocals).

    By 1989: François Guillemot (vocals), Loran (guitar), Masto (saxophone), la petite Titi (backing vocals), Jojo (fire breather and backing vocals).

    The band refused to make a profit and also to work. As a result, they lived precariously. In 1989, after three farewell concerts at the Paris Olympia, they disbanded. François later formed Molodoï and "François Béru et les Anges Déchus", Loran formed Ze6, Tromatism and later A.D. (Division de la horde).

    On December 4, 2003, they reunited for the release of a DVD documenting their career. The concert took place in the context of the Transmusicales in Rennes. They have since played other concerts, in Quebec and in Belgium.

    Label - Folklore De La Zone Mondiale

    Folklore de la Zone Mondiale (FZM) first appeared in 1987 as a logo on Bérurier Noir’s album 'Abracadaboum' m1398.

    In 2003, the label was revived and organized in the form of a small company run by three members of the Bérurier Noir (François (3), Loran, Masto). The first purpose of the label was to reclaim the management of the group's catalog and monitor all aspects.

    New projects were added by releasing records by bands such as Ethnopaire, Kni Crik, Lucrate Milk or Junior Cony. The label as a structure of cultural resistance also produced the first album of groups still little known to the public, like Ethnopaire, Cellule X or Hydra (31). In parallel, PariA (4), who joined the label in 2004 and is responsible for the direct distribution of discs on the internet and in concert, offers co-productions with many French and foreign labels: Guarapita, Witch Hunt, Calavera (2), Fall of Efrafa, Sickness, La Raïa, Mon Dragon, Oi Polloi…

    In late 2007 the label closed for financial reasons and two new structures were created:

    - Loran launched an organization called Lorspider Production that continues to work with the label’s bands and produces some new projects.

    - PariA (4) and Alexis founded the cooperative "La Distro" which continued the distribution of the FZM catalog through the internet and in concerts as well as the distribution of other independent labels and bands, to offer a catalog of reasonably priced conter-culture music. This structure folded in 2009 and was replaced by La Distroy.

    In 2013, PariA (4) founded Archives de la Zone Mondiale, a label about french punk-rock bands like Bérurier Noir, Ludwig Von 88, Lucrate Milk, Haine Brigade, Heyoka, René Binamé and many others.
