I originally heard of this song from TakiMag, but now a commenter at Ilkka’s linked to the video. I find it kind of odd that the kind of very old timey social conservatism is expressed by a hip modern band from Quebec. Perhaps because it was in French it didn’t quite do it for me as De La Rey does (though I feel incomplete listening to that without a beer at hand). Though I haven’t read him, the same sort of revulsion for modernity seems to be shared by their fellow Francophone Michel Houllebecq, whose lurid stories oddly received a plug from Michael Burleigh in Sacred Causes.
