Parlez-Vous English? is the seventh album by psychedelic rock group, The Edgar Broughton Band, or "The Broughtons" as they are credited on this release. The album was created after serious legal action, which occurred during the release of their previous album Bandages, this resulted with the band splitting up for four years before finally reuniting under a different moniker, "The Broughtons". The album was originally released as Infinity INS 3027 in 1979, and saw the band on new label, Infinity Records and with a more punk/rock sound, as opposed to their other psychedelic rock releases. The album was remastered in 2006.
