Patrice Leconte. who. you may recall. directed The ' i‘ : Huinlresseris Husband. is also the man behind this 1 period drama set in the terribly decadent French court of the l8th century. It was a time and a place , when a sharp tongue could be just as deadly as a : sharp sword. and a savage wit was often more ' feared than clever swordplay. Physical cuts could harm the body. ridicule could destroy the spirit. The film has been nominated for twelve Cesars. the French version of the ()scars. and it was also the French nomination for the Academy Awards. Thanks to Electric Pictures we have four posters of the film and four sumptuous Cl) soundtracks composed by Antoine Duhamel who scored the music fora number ofthe most famous films of the New Wave.

Not exactly renowned for their subtle understatement. L.A.- based five-piece Korn rock like methamphetarnine-crazed bastards. Their ironically titled second album. Life Is Pear-Irv. smashed its way to Number Three in the US charts and reached 1 Number 22 in the UK. no mean feat for a band who have only

. toured three times on these shores. Especrally when you

: consider that lead vocalist Jonathan Davis also uses bagpipes

: in his set.

: If you haven‘t come across them before then you can gain a

r little insight into their world from song titles such as ‘Kill You‘. : ‘Wicked' and ‘Porno Creep'.
