Anyone remember the band called ‘The Lou’s’ on CBS Records?

autographed poster from Hastings Pier gig supplied by Peter Houghton

Pete saw them on Hastings Pier but can’t remember who they supported or any other information. Anyone help?

Tony Ham… As they were on CBS, The Clash possibly? Can’t find any mention of them anywhere.

Peter Houghton…  I have found them they supported Richard Hell and the Clash they was an French Punk Band members Pamels Pola Sacha Dejones Raphaele and Tolim Toto

Mark… they supported Richard Hell and The Clash in Bristol about 1978-9

Pete Fairless… They supported the Clash.

Simon Lokes… Yes i saw them at Hastings pier pavilion Nov 1977, 3rd on the bill behind The Clash and Richard Hell, also remember seeing Billy Idol hanging around after the gig.

Petrel41… See their bio at https://www.last.fm/music/Lou%27s

David Kent… All I know is the guy on the far left must have been a GP because he seems to be giving his bandmate a prostate exam..

Simon Lokes… Remember seeing the Lou’s Hastings pier supporting The Clash and Richard Hell think it would have been Nov 1977, slept in a phone box outside Hastings train station as no trains back.

Petrel41… Today, the Dutch drummer of this otherwise French band got a reconstructed 1977 Lou’s badge. See https://dearkitty1.wordpress.com/2020/11/26/pioneer-punk-drums-woman-gets-badge-back/

Robert Furnace… I saw the Lou’s at Castaways Club ,Union Street, Plymouth, late 1977. supporting the Clash , along with Richard Hell and the Voidoids the gig sticks in my memory not only for the fantastic line up but also watching live my first female punk band( The Lou’s ), i have tried to find this gig on setlist etc, there is no mention, or on the Clash out of control tour either, perhaps this date may have been added to the tour after the publicity information had already been distributed ? can anybody help please ?

Petrel41… Yesterday, French researchers announced there should be more research on women in French punk, including the Lou’s https://dearkitty1.wordpress.com/2020/12/06/french-punk-women-getting-more-research-attention/. 

Petrel41… On https://www.bacteria.nl/cheapnnasty-flyers-articles/ scroll down a lot, there is now the poster of the first concert of Lou’s drummer Sascha de Jong’s new Dutch band, the Miami Beach Girls, in the Jam in Leiden in May 1981; supporting Cheap ‘n’ Nasty. The last line on the poster, in blue, says, translated: 1st concert (includes ex-drummer of the Lou’s).
