i heard this in a bar....: MEN are coming
Who? MEN! But who are they? They used to be Le Tigre but now they are men. The story goes:
'MEN is a Brooklyn-based band and art/performance collective that focuses on the energy of live performance and radical potential of dance music. MEN speaks to issues such as wartime economies, sexual compromise, and demanding liberties through lyrical content and an exciting stage show. The group began in 2007 as the DJ/production/remix team of LE TIGRE members JD Samson and Johanna Fateman. When the duo began to write new songs, it made sense to merge their efforts with JD's other new project HIRSUTE. JD and original HIRSUTE members Michael O'Neill and Ginger Brooks Takahashi (formerly of indie-pop group THE BALLET) now comprise the core of MEN, with Johanna and artist Emily Roysdon contributing as writers, consultants, and producers.'
