    All started in 1995 in Brest, France. Tristan Nihouarn (Stan, flute, guitar & vocals) & Cédric Floc'h (Sammy, lead guitar) founded the band Tricards Twins. When they met Jean-François Paillard (Fanch, drums & percussion) & Éric Digaire (bass & keyboards), they found a new band name, Matmatah, after a town in Tunisia. In 1997, Matmatah released their first EP, with the song "Lambé An Dro" & they participated to Bourges' Printemps.
    In 1998, they released their first album La Ouache. More than 800,000 copies have been sold, thanks to the singles "Emma" & "L'Apologie". In 2001, Matmatah's second album Rebelote came out, but it has been unnoticed. After their tour, they released their live album Lust For A Live. Fanch left the band & Benoît Fournier (Scholl) became the band's new drummer.
    In 2004, Archie Kramer was a more radio-friendly album, still sounding like 70's rock. The song "Au Conditionnel" has been a hit & the band went on tour in India. In 2006, Matmatah released another EP, ...And Time Goes Friendly.
    On March 5, 2007, Matmatah's fourth album La Cerise was more punk rock than the previous ones. Despite bad critics, success was there again. Matmatah performed at Paris' Olympia. On November 6, 2007, Matmatah announced their split, released their last single "Bande À Part" & their last concert has been on August 30, 2008 in Plougastel.
