Laurent Brancowitz, Christian Mazzalai, Thomas Mars, and Deck d'Arcy are Phoenix, a Grammy Award-winning indie rock band from Versailles, France. They have released six full-length albums and tour internationally.Laura Snapes is a British music critic and the deputy music editor of the Guardian.
"If there was ever a time to release a Phoenix book, it's now. Band members Laurent Brancowitz, Christian Mazzalai, Thomas Mars, and Deck d'Arcy collaborated with journalist Laura Snapes to create Phoenix: Liberte, Egalite, Phoenix!, an oral history and archive that arrives 30 years after the band's inception, about 20 years since their first album United and 10 years after their commercial breakthrough Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. When one of the best music journalists/critics around gets together with one of the best rock bands around, the result could only be something close to magic." --PASTE MAGAZINE
