RA/OR 122 - FRANCOPHONE: QUEBEC ROCK WITH SIMON FAUTEUX





Believe it or not there is a thriving rock scene in North America that has been churning out great music for decades but very few people outside of the Canadian province of Quebec even know it exists. This is because Quebec (population 8 million) is a predominantly French speaking province surrounded by English speaking provinces and the US below and this has led to the development of what some people refer to as Francophone, or Quebec-based bands or artists that choose to perform in French and thus find themselves isolated to Quebec. A band from Quebec that performs in French will be heard by very few people outside of Quebec and that's just the way it is, until now. On this episode BJ is joined once again by Simon Fauteux, who was himself once a rock artist from Quebec who chose to perform in French. Simon has put together a list of 20 of the greatest songs by the most important rock artists from Quebec, from the seventies until today. Listen and learn.

  1. Great podcast! I own a small handful of these records due to constantly digging in thrift stores for the last 3 decades. This music is just not very common around here.

    I live in Saskatchewan, Canada and all of this stuff is very obscure despite being from the same country. So cool to hear this first-hand account of the Quebec rock scene.
