Biography

Frederic Magnon is a Frenchman better known to the discerning music fans by Avril (well-known French thief of the 19th century). His music expresses a sense of freedom “with no limit”, as his label, F Communication (Mr Oizo, Laurent Garnier, Readymade FC and artists with very different sounds) puts it: “electronics with no limit”. Avril has won the Prix Constantin (the French version of the Mercury Music Prize) with his first album’That Horse Must Be Starving’, but there was no way he was going to rest on his laurels for album number two. Live bass and drums were drafted in, as were the lush sounds of Serg. The result sounds like The DFA transplanted to Avril’s home turf, the 18th arrondissement of Paris. He named his second album ìmembers onlyî, he wanted to placehis music below communitarism, mixing existing styles and codes into a single man’s music.

    For those who want to google him happily add a hyphen mark (-) to the word Lavigne. So type in "Avril -Lavigne … …" and it will greatly help. btw I'm a Lavigne listen who wanted to see if there are other musicians with the name. This guy is kinda cool :)
