Les Garçons posing with their signature baguettes.

Les Garçons de la Plage were a French rock band, and one of the other musical groups managed by the Rutles' manager Leggy Mountbatten in the 1960s. They were known as "the French Beach Boys" and signed to Rutle Corps as a promising talent, however, after the label's ultimate failure they were never heard from again.
