Our guest of honor will be the musician and author Frank Darcel who will be signing his 4th novel, Vilaine Blessure.
Frank Darcel co-founded Marquis de Sade in 1977. Even though the band was active for a short time, it is now considered a pillar of post-punk music in France. We are fortunate to catch him in New York, where he is touring recording studios to prepare for Marquis de Sade‘s third album recording in the Summer.
Frank also authored the iconic ROK, an encyclopedic book in 2 tomes about 50 years of Rock and Roll in Brittany.
Frank will certainly tell us more about his ascension within the Rennes music scene, catalyzed by a historical participation in the very first edition of Rencontres Trans Musicales.
Last but not least, we will learn more about his political engagement into Breizh Europa, which adds up to his multiple interests and shapes his vision of Brittany.
