One of the first French new wave bands, in 1976 the band took part in the 100 Club Punk Festival in London, sharing the bill with such bands as Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Damned and Buzzcocks.
A single was released in a picture cover on Polydor Records in 1977, "Boozy Creed", with "Driver Blues" on the B-side.
The single met with mixed reviews, causing Polydor to abandon the release of the band's eponymous debut album outside France.
The album was described by Allmusic as "a largely flat, bland collection of recycled Stones and New York Dolls riffs with low-quality vocals", while Trouser Press were also not impressed with what they described as "uninspired sub-Rolling Stones rock'n'boogie with terrible vocals by Elli Medeiros".
The band split up in 1979, with Elli Medeiros and Jacno then forming the duo, Elli et Jacno. Medeiros went on to a solo career, releasing the Elli album in 1988.
Jacno later released several solo albums as well as working with several other artists including Mareva Galanter.
Medeiros was chosen by Dev Hynes as part of his 'Fantasy Band' in 2008.

Denis Quillard alias Jacno and Elli Medeiros decided to start a music duo after leaving the punk band The Stinky Toys. Jacno composed and performed the music and Elli sang and wrote the lyrics.

Born as Denis Quillard, he was a founding member of the first French punk band The Stinky Toys. In the early 1980s, after the group disbanded, he teamed up with former Stinky Toys singer Elli Medeiros to form the pop duo Elli et Jacno. Jacno had also released a number of solo albums since 1979.
A chain smoker, he took his professional name from the name of the graphic artist who drew the Gallic helmet logo of French Gauloises cigarettes brand.
