Québécois music a gogo : Les Beatlettes+Les Guerrières

The influence of the fab four was enormous on the Québec music scene so it was no surprise Les Beatlettes were formed.An all-girl group who didn't really sound like The Beatles.For more info on them and a few more songs I suggest you check out the excellent post at dans mon café.
Here they do a cover of a song by famous blond dyed Québec group Les Classels.Check out their original here.

Les Beatlettes-Ton amour a changé ma vie

Following the split-up of Les Beatlettes (due to a car-crash claiming two of the original member's lives) at the end of 1965,Claire Fugère decided to form another group called Les Guerrières (great name if you ask me),the group showed great potential but sadly only recorded one 45 and split up at the end of 1966.Shortly after Claire and 2 other Guerrières reformed Les Beatlettes.Check out their France Gall cover... (Big thanks to Eiffel50!)

    You're back with a bullet.
    Two nice postings including a rare version of a France Gall fave of mine by Les Guerrieres.
    Cracking stuff.

    Cette formation a toujours été un numéro de cabaret, s'adressant à un public adulte. This band had always been an adult cabaret number. Elles sont venues à quelques reprises dans ma ville natale, mais ne jouaient pas dans des salles pour jeunes, mais dans des boîtes pour adultes, avec alcool. They play some times in my hometown, but not in schools or dance hop, but in alcool cabarets for adults. Je pense que les interprétations des Beatlettes et des Guerrières étaient médiocres. I don't think their records sounds very good. Une des membres demeure aujourd'hui à Vancouver et joue toujours de son instruments dans des bars. One of the members lives in Vancouver and still play music in bars.
