HushPuppies is a French garage rock band influenced by the various bands of the 1960s. Members of the group live in Paris, France, although originate from Perpignan and Bordeaux.



Four of the band's members - Franck, Cyrille, Wilfried and Olivier - grew up in Perpignan, where they formed a group with others called the Likyds.[1] This group specialised largely in cover versions of 1960s garage rock songs. The band split with four members later reuniting in Paris where they met up with Guillaume Le Guen from Bordeaux. This led to the formation in 2002 of HushPuppies.[1]

The band describe their influences as being 1960s groups such as The Kinks, The Who and Small Faces[1]

In April 2003, their first demo went on sale, followed by a 12 track live album Live @ House of Live. In 2004, two EPs were released. The Garden being their first public presentation.[citation needed]

The following year, the band's first album, The Trap, went on sale.[1] On September 13, they played for a live concert on a London bus, in Paris with a French radio, Le Mouv.[2] Their album " The Trap" became an independent hit selling more than 20,000 coppies.

The band's second album, Silence is Golden, was released in November 2008.[3]

In 2008 their song You're Gonna Say Yeah! was featured on the soundtrack of Guitar Hero World Tour.[4]

Bipolar Drift is released in 2010.
