Les Thugs, formed in 1983 in France, played punk-pop built around the vocals of Eric Sourice and the guitar of Thierry Meanard.

The album Radical Hystery (Closer, 1986), with Never Get Older ; the mini-album Electric Troubles (Vinyl Solution, 1987), with with Chess and Crimes; the EP Dirty White Race (Vinyl Solution, 1988), with I Need You ; the album Still Hungry (Vinyl Solution, 1990), with Little Vera's Song and the album I.A.B.F. (Vinyl Solution, 1991), with I Love You So (possibly their masterpiece), marked the progression from the amateurish beginnings to a more mature power-pop sound.

The double album As Happy As Possible (Vinyl Solution, 1993), with August and As Happy As , opened the major phase of the band, that slumped with Strike (Roadrunner, 1996) and its lukewarm Allez Les Filles , but quickly recovered with Nineteen Something (Labels, 1997 - Subpop, 1998), with Henry's Back.

Tout Doit Disparaitre (Labels, 1999) is their last album.

Les Thugs, unable to overtake the originals, never truly achieved punk grandeur.
