This French tribute to Johnny Thunders features mostly European bands. Sound is great and generally the songs have a much harder, punker, edge. There's a cool version of 'Chinese Rocks' sung in French here that really works for me. And the 'Little Bit o' Whore' by Bebe Buell, with Coyote Shivers on guitar, is ironic and good. The CD booklet is excellent and shows original artwork and photos.
