After years as a musical enemy number one of the town council of Marseilles, Laurent Mombel estimated that his talents were ignored and wrongfully punished. In exile in the United Kingdom, Laurent, put himself about to find the musicians of Garage that were most endowed within their neighbourhoods – unfortunately they all were occupied and thus decided to make do with a few old tearaways met in the wild regions of Scotland – Thus Les BOF! were formed and after that, a series of concerts left them in the not very enviable situation of premier garage rockers of French language in Great Britain.
‘BOF!’ literally translates as ..don’t care!’ or ..not interested!’ but do not see there a group for which one would not have to be interested, but rather a group universally rejected by the established order – a situation, we are sure, you all know too well and with which you can only sympathize.
Les BOF! play regularly not only in the dull cellars and dusty cafes of Edinburgh and its neighbourhoods but also abroad – try to see them whether they come in your city – or better, invite them to play in your own living room – it will not cost you the eyes teeth – Vive Les BOF!
