    The whole case has been over mediatized by the french press and reporters anyway, when you have to hide real problems, using stories like this one is the easy way to go. I'm not saying what happened has no importance or what he did can be defended, but it's a story among many others, he's been targeted from start and that's why Noir Désir will always be remembered as "the band with the guy who killed his girlfriend" by (too) many people. Massive fuck to all scums saying they can't listen to his music anymore, the kind of shitheads enjoying Burzum or Tupac Shakur on the other hand with no problems with what they did.

    Completely obsessed with Bertrand Cantat. Yes yes, I realize what happened. It doesn't take away from the man's brilliance and spirit.

    Cantat payed for his violence (overpayed, btw : one still tries to know who are the ones who burned his whole house, in a private underground justice action - papers, instruments, memory things : a house totally lost - while he was in jail) and justice has been done. I miss Noir Désir but the last LP with Pascal Humbert is awesome.

    I could care less what Cantat did or does in his private time, the crime he's committed doesn't alter the fact that he's a genius at his craft. Art and the artist's private life don't always go hand in hand.
