Les Cowboys Fringants (English The Frisky Cowboys ) are a popular band and cult phenomenon from Quebec, who perform QuÃ©bÃ©cois nÃ©o-trad music (modernized Quebec folk music with a rock flavour), the band also draws on Country music. They have gained an international underground following, especially in France and Switzerland. There is even a group of French fans called Les Cousins Fringants (a take on the expression cousin that the French and QuÃ©bÃ©cois use to affectionately call each other). They hail from the MontrÃ©al suburb of Repentigny, Quebec. The entire band collaborates on the lyrics, although guitarist Jean-FranÃ§ois PauzÃ© often contributes more than the others. The fundamental aspect of the band are their explosive live performances, captured on the Attache ta tuque live album and the Centre Bell 30 dÃ©cembre 2003 DVD.
