La Société des Timides à la Parade des Oiseaux (The Shy Society at the Bird Parade) has been disturbing listeners since the late 80s with their unique French take on artsy post-punk. Possible influences include the RIO scene (Henry Cow), art-wave (Pere Ubu), and avant-jazz. Noisy guitar mixes with saxes, xylophones, and cello for a unique combination of sound; add in distressed vocals in various languages and you have La STPO.
