Je Suis France is an American indie rock group formed in Athens, GA, in 1997. Their albums have been released by David Lowery's Pitch-A-Tent Records, Elf Power's Orange Twin Records, and Antenna Farm Records. The band has also self-released a number of singles and CD-Rs.
Je Suis France formed in Athens, GA, in 1997 after Ryan Martin ejaculated on a copy of Pavement's "Slanted and Enchanted." Sean Rawls of Masters of the Hemisphere and Still Flyin' was the original drummer, but was eventually replaced by Jeff Griggs, also of Masters of the Hemisphere.
In 2003 they released Fantastic Area on Orange Twin Records, which ranked twentieth on Polish music website Porcys's list of the best records released between 2000 and 2009. Fantastic Area was followed by 2007's Afrikan Majik album.
Between 2000 and 2009 Je Suis France oversaw the Twilight Delirium concert series. Twilight Delirium was an annual concert the night of the Twilight Criterium bicycle race. Dozens of bands played Twilight Delirium over the years, including Masters of the Hemisphere, Royal Bangs, and Summer Hymns.
