Album Notes
International supergroup BandàBordel: is an 8-person "supergroup" consisting of QUEL BORDEL! (from San Diego, CA) & BandàpArt (from Bedarieux, France). These two bands merged a few years prior to create this "International supergroup" (mainly as a byproduct of most of the members touring together at least once a year for nearly 7 years).

After all these years on the road together, they've come up with a few original songs, and are finally releasing an EP with 3 originals and one cover. Embodying the joyful/playful spirit of the two groups: all the songs are high energy French/English folk-punk and a unique mix of the two cultures and bands that make up this project!

A little about the songs on the EP: "Le Poulpe" (or "The Octopus" in English) is about a prank game the two bands play where they smack their hands over each other's faces at inappropriate times and shout "Le Poulpe!", "Manolo" is the true story of a French gypsy king who had a hard life: he was arrested and cheated on by his wife, and then killed by his men accidentally when he escapes prison. "Je Chante" is the anthem of the two bands -- a song about the experiences touring together (half in french and half in english). The ending track is a cover giving a fresh interpretation of the french nursery rhyme song "Jean Petit."

The album title “Convoi Exceptionnel” is french for the English term "Wide Load" -- the bands both latched onto this term during the 2017 European tour together and thought it personified the "wide" touring caravan of the multiple-band package; not to mention the shenanigans on the road.

“Convoi Exceptionnel” will be released digitally and physically on 12/22/18 from Mannequin Vanity Records. Mannequin Vanity will be pressing a limited # of CD's and selling at all the shows on the Album Release Tour and on CD Baby.
