* 03.10.2004    Encore Les Simpletons!

France seems to have gone mad about the Simpletons. On the week of 20-25 September, this site recorded no less than 141 downloads of the track It's Alright", all from French ISP

"Quite why the French have suddenly cottoned on to an old Simpletons track is a bit beyond me", said Steve, whilst hitting his recording computer violently in a vain attempt to fix it. "I can only assume that someone somewhere has been posting the link round via email, as any attempt to find it via a search engine doesn't produce much of a result. So it's probably not a case of the 'slashdot effect'. All the same, I'm very glad someone out there is listening."
