AllMusic Review by

On Et Tant Pis Si Cela Vous Deplait, Montréal's Les Sequelles (pronounced "say-kel") play a convincing brand of '60s garage rock, unintelligible to any listener not fluent in French. However, as anyone who has ever puzzled over the lyrics to "Louie Louie" can attest, intelligibility has never been a requirement for garage rock. While Les Sequelles don't stray from the standard garage sound, they do come up with a number of solid tracks, including "Mieux Vaut Tard Que Jamais," "Girl," "Quatre Cheveux Dans le Vent," and "Mon Loup." As enjoyable as these songs are, however, Les Sequelles never seem to really cut loose until the final track, "Monstre-a-Go-Go," a garage-style freakout that the rest of the songs on the disc only hint at. Still, Et Tant Pis Si Cela Vous Deplait is a solid entry in the garage revival category.
