Here’s what Wikipedia says about Talbot Tagora:
The Talbot Tagora was an executive car developed by Chrysler Europe and produced by Peugeot Société Anonyme (PSA). The Tagora was marketed under the Talbot marque after PSA took over Chrysler’s European operations in 1979. PSA presented the first production vehicle in 1980 and launched it commercially in 1981. The Tagora fell far short of sales expectations, and PSA cancelled the model only two years later. Fewer than 20,000 Tagoras were ever built, all of them at the former Simca factory in the Poissy commune near Paris, France.
Here’s what the Stranger’s Capitol Hill Block Party guide says about Talbot Tagora:
Seattle upstarts Talbot Tagora play intricate postpunk full of dexterous guitars, flailing drum fills, and distant vocals. Their songs churn and twist unpredictably from chanted refrains to discordant riffs, but they reveal catchy hooks throughout, often in the most unusual moments. While the guitars and drums are playfully aggressive, the vocals are almost timid, delivered as mumbles or through walls of reverb, and the contrast makes for some spectacular tension.
