“Front 242 – Catch the men, the biography” is a first Front 242 biography based on 3 years of interviews with the members of the group and more than 40 years of official or unofficial documentation. Written by Eric Duboys, French writer and biographer, it recounts in a systematic, complete and detailed way the story of Front 242 as experienced by its 4 members.
This is the first biography devoted to Front 242 but it will only be published in French, but no worries, Google Translate will do the work for those who do not know the language of Voltaire. The total counts 642 pages including an insert of 118 pages of photos for the most part unpublished.
The book is available via Cultures Obliques in association with Le Camion Blanc.

Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
