AKA La Société des Timides à la Parade des Oiseaux (which stand for "The shy peoples society at the parade of the birds").

This six piece (or more) French ensemble has been around since 1984, and operates in the area somewhere between Etron Fou axis and Neo-chamber styles, applying humor, avant-gardisms, ultra high energy theatrics, and a well rounded eclectism. They cover a pretty wide field of material within those realms, using guitars, bass, contrabass, drums, percussions, saxes, mallets and synths, plus a lot of unusual stuff like balafon and viola de gamba.
