Biography

There are two bands known as Dolly:

1) A Popular French rock group Dolly got together in Nantes, a town in the west of France, in 1991. Their formation came about thanks to drummer Thierry Lacroix and singer Emmanuelle Monet - aka Manu - who shared a mutual passion for English and American music. The Anglophile duo teamed up with two musician friends - bass-player Mick Chamberlin and guitarist Nicolas Bonniere (who was just 15 at the time!) - and went on to make a name for themselves on the local music scene as Dolly & Co.

Dolly and C°’s early influences might have been lifted from the best chapters of an English/American rock compendium - indeed, the group’s sound was heavily influenced by the likes of Blondie, Prince, the Pixies and the Smashing Pumpkins. But lead singer Manu’s greatest source of inspiration was the work of English indie diva PJ Harvey. The young French singer was fascinated by Harvey’s deep, melancholy vocals and, after seeing PJ in concert, Manu decided to accompany her own singing on guitar. Performing extensively on the local music scene, Dolly and C° soon began to build up an extensive repertoire (most of which was written by Manu). And before long the group attracted a massive following of fans.

Encouraged by this early success on the local music scene, Dolly and C° went into the studio to begin work on their debut album. After producing a mini album (featuring six tracks), Dolly and C° went on to produce their first full-length album themselves. (The album, entitled simply “Dolly and C°, actually scored a considerable hit on the national music scene, selling over 85,000 copies).

    "ThirdSex wrote: I'm French, I know and listen both Dolly bands but... the Japanese one can EASILY be tagged in rômaji. :) So please, be serious guys, and let this page be the official one for the French Dolly band..." I can't but agree! 2 dougurin, Feminism....please, copypast won't save the world!)) Everybody must appreciate both bands. We cannot say what band is the best, because they are DIFFERENT!!! Too different. some people listen to VK Dolly, some to French Dolly, some people listen to both of them and we should APPRECIATE the choice of each listener!!! We can find a compromise. ThirdSex offers one compromise, there was another one (http://www.lastfm.ru/music/Dolly/+images/328362) Maybe somebody can offer another picture with both bands on it. I love to listen to French Dolly and I know how many this band made for French rock, and thanks Google, I can find some information about Japaneese Dolly and know smth about them and appreciate the choice this band's fans

    I wish I could just tag the japanese band as Dolly, but neither my music players nor my windows explorer can read it... I don't want to see a bunch of blank squares ._.
