Featuring The Pretenders, Big Youth, Eddie & The Hot Rods and more. Cheq out this rare footage of Parisienne punk rockers Metal Urbain performing their second single "Paris Maquis" on French television in early 1978. The filming didn't go well as the group had fallen out with the studio technicians after singer Clode Panik requested a microphone stand, which they felt was un-necessary for a TV performance. Clode would leave the group at the end of the year and programer, Eric Debris would step up to take over vocal duties. The single is of historical significance as it happened to be the first ever release on British independent label, Rough Trade.
