Les Yé-Yé Girls

In the 60’s it was fashionable to have cute ladies dancing and singing in front of a male pop band.  In France these were called Yé-Yé girls and added excitement and eye candy to the performance.  Founded by Yolanda DeRose, Les Yé-Yé Girls is a Melbourne collective of female musicians reproducing 60’s French pop by artist such as Serge Gainsbourg and France Gall with a rotating line up of killer players and dancers.  This clip is the least French, and least 60’s of the setlist but exceptionally captures the energy of Les Yé-Yé Girls of Melbourne (courtesy of JD Strobist) at local live music venue the Labour in Vain in Fitzroy.
