Menomena Sing on the Streets of Paris, Are Confronted by an Angry French Woman

Posted by Ezra Ace Caraeff on Mon, Jun 14, 2010 at 7:47 AM

Is La Blogothèque just not French enough for you? How about you try Le HibOO? That's the Paris blog that just filmed Menomena strolling through the streets of the French capital singing "Dirty Cartoons," from their forthcoming Mines LP. It's odd to see the band as anything but a trio, but sure enough, that's Joe Haege (Tu Fawning/31Knots) on acoustic guitar, plus this video illustrates drummer/singer Danny Seim's ability to make bird calls. Who knew?

As for the angry woman, she makes her appearance towards the end, confronting the band for violating her privacy (?) and following them down the alley and into the street. Seim's response to the heckler? "Jesus loves you." Yeah, take that, you godless Parisian.

End Hits: She wouldn't have yelled at Jordy.
