Satan JokerS’ history begins in 1979 with the band JARRETELLES. At that time, the trio features Renaud Hantson on drums and vocals, Laurent Bernat on bass and a guitar player. They give only a few concerts and make some demo recordings before they decide to audition singers. Pierre Guiraud is chosen. At first, he is mostly noticed for his extravagant clothes (it is communally thought that he came to the audition wearing a red shoe on one foot and a white shoe on the other). After firing their first guitarist, the band quickly finds Stephane Bonneau (ex-STRATOS then WARNING). December 1981: Satan JokerS was born ! The band’s name was inspired to Renaud Hantson by two rival gangs of bikers in the United States: the Satan Slavic and the Gipsy Jokers. In order to attract the attention of the record companiesSatan Jokers, the band records at the Studio Chien Jaune a three-track demo (presented in an iron box) composed of the titles “Les Fils du Métal”, “Quand les héros se meurent” and “Vices privés” (this last composition will reappear under a different version on Satan Jokers’ second album). They appear in Francis Zégut’s radio broadcast “Les enfants d’AC/DC” in December 26th 1982 to perform the title “En partance pour l’enfer”. Very quickly, Satan JokerS are noticed. Their audience becoming increasingly big, the group has to record its first album in order to release it as soon as possible. Isabelle de Kervalec (the band’s producer as well as mother of guitarist Stéphane Bonneau) inks a three-record deal with PHONOGRAM for Satan JokerS.
