The best thing to come out of America this year" Steve Lamacq autumn 99

Le Tigre (lay-tee-gruh) is a new band featuring Kathleen Hanna (formerly of Bikini Kill, Julie Ruin, The Fakes & Suture), Sadie Benning (internationally known videomaker) and Johanna Fateman (writer behind the zines 'Artaud-Mania!' and 'My Need To Speak on the Subject of Jackson Pollock').

Le Tigre uses samples, claves, farfisa, a live dj, guitar, voices and beats to make their music. Their sound touches on conceptual garage, digital anthemic, political sadness and unfinished soundtracks. Catchy or danceable moments are complicated by repitition in which flaws become apparant and/or political content challenges "the groove".

Their debut, self titled debut album has been hailed as an underground classic all round the world. (Its available in the U.S. on Mr. Lady, the girl oriented albel run by Kaia from Team Dreschh) . Check out the Wiiija only Hot Topic single, with bonus remix and two extra tracks
