Hey friends! Here is one of Olivier’s old friends. His name’s also Olive, like Olivier! He’s an old punk, like Olivier! He’s from Brittany, not like Olivier. Read his interview below!
I’ll introduce myself, I’m Olive. I live in Nantes now, and have been a fan of rock’n’roll since I was very young. My first two albums were a compilation of the first Beatles songs (quite pop) and the live MC5 (big sound, there was no stronger at the time except for the Stooges). I’m not a musician – I tried but no, too bad. But I had the music ‘virus’, I became a fan of rock, punk and then the Meteors …. The last shows I’ve seen, obviously the Hellfest, Demented Are Go and the Fleshtones.
