"Détruire l'Ennui" - destroying boredom in French - is a 90 minutes radio show broadcast by Radio Libertaire, the radio station of the French Anarchist Federation.
The main topic of our show is DIY punk-rock in all its forms and variety. We play many different styles of punk music, with a strong emphasis on anarchopunk. We play bands from all over the world and from any (punk) decade.
The show happens the second, the fourth and the fifth sundays of every month from 8:30PM to 10PM (that is the French time, for people living in the US take between 6 or 10 hours).
To celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of the radio station (the show has been going for 6 years I think), we have made 22 punk compilations with bands from all over the world. Each volume is dedicated to a particular region of the globe, for instance there is one with bands from Greece, Turkey and Cyprus.
These compilations are not meant to be exhaustive. They are meant to be cd's to be distributed in order to share punk knowledge and hopefully trigger some curiosity on the listeners' part. The selection of tracks have been difficult since they are cd compilation and 80 minutes is not much to introduce a scene. Therefore, some good bands are missing, but I hope the result is still pleasant and a good introduction to badly-known punk scenes.
These compilations will be available shortly from the blog of the show (http://detruirelennui.blogspot.com/) to be downloaded. In the files you will find the songs (obviously), but also a complete tracklist with the names of the songs, of the bands, the record from which it is taken and the year of recording. The scans of the covers are also included so that anyone can burn his or her own cd's and make a proper looking compilation.
These are not meant to be sold at a fixed price at all, in case someone would like to sell them to support a worthy cause. The idea is to sell them for a donation ("prix libre" in French).
On the blog you will also find several shows from 2010 with a tracklist of what was played if you wondering what the glorious Détruire l'Ennui sounds like.
Finally, if you notice any mistake in the names of the songs or the year or whatever, please let me know. Any comments are of course strongly recommended.
4 compilations are already posted on the blog : Great Britain (in two volumes http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?lfd63i364kndqnv and http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?csdz2bh8fbcobzu), USA (http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?8sahqjtmdad2vsd) and Germany/Netherlands (http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?cpnd6a52yga297j).

Up the punx!
