Les Satellites (The Satellites) is an alternative rock band formed in France in 1985 and split up in 1994. The band was born in late 1985 on the ashes of underground acts Tonton est mort and Abject. They play a mix of 60’s influenced rock and funk with the addition of brass instruments. The lyrics are resolutely humoristic and careless. In 1986, they started touring with then popular alternative french bands Bérurier Noir, Ludwig Von 88, Les Wampas and Mano Negra and played on stage dressed as cosmonauts.
