Second Sex
Second Sex are part of the new wave of young French rock bands heavily influenced by Pete Doherty and the post-Libertines British rock scene.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/2007/mar/30/worldmusic

'Manoeuvre's magazine has been championing a new generation of bands in the Clash mould, like 16-year-old rockers Second Sex ("when they played their first concert, people were pinching themselves - they were so like the Clash!" says Manoeuvre), les Shades, Naast, the Plasticines, the Parisians and Brooklyn. None of the members of these bands were even born when the Clash played Mogador. Most of them feature on a new French punk compilation called Paris Calling.

...

"It's pure hedonism," says Yarol Poupaud, who compiled, recorded and produced the album. "These kids are the children of the generation who grew up during May '68. They can see that those political battles are lost. For them, the revolution is in the head. It's in clothes, in the way they look. Forming a band becomes a political act. They sing in English because it sounds cool - most of them don't even know what they're singing half the time! And, while they love the Clash, it's Mick Jones's protégé Pete Doherty who they worship. Many of these bands met at one of the Libertines gigs in Paris, which had a similar effect to Mogador '81."


'Others are more sceptical about them. "These bands are all lovely kids, very cute, well brought-up from good, upper-class families," says Jean-Daniel Beauvallet from Les Inrockuptibles. "They went to the best schools in France. But they're all incredibly apolitical. Pete Doherty is their hero - what French kid wouldn't love him? There he is, stumbling around with a Gauloise in his mouth, wearing those tight trousers that French kids love, carrying a slim volume of Rimbaud or Baudrillard. Bands like Second Sex and Naast tell you that they love the Clash, but it sometimes seems that they actually just like the iconography, you know - Mick's trousers, Paul Simonon's haircut. They're more interested in a Mick Rock book of Clash photographs than they are in actually listening to Sandinista. Maybe they should all go and listen to some Rachid Taha."'
