2004 reissue of the indie electronica act's 2001 compilation.
Professional force-to-be-reckoned-with (and Bikini Kill frontwoman) Kathleen Hanna takes on George Clinton's "free your ass and your mind will follow" mantra with her current project Le Tigre. Following their ace eponymous debut debut, the pop-punk trio of Hanna, Johanna Fateman, and Sadie Benning return with "From the Desk of Mr. Lady," a snappy suckerpunch of subversion. Using simple drum machines, electric guitar power chords, and Hanna's rebel yell, they create hard and shiny dancecore with a bad attitude. On this short and sweet EP, "Bang! Bang!" is the most poignant track, chronicling the shooting of unarmed African immigrant Amadou Diallo in New York. It ends with a bone-chilling drum sequence that represents the 41 shots fired by NYPD officers, who were ultimately acquitted. Le Tigre achieve the unusual by seamlessly uniting fun music with revolutionary ideas: this EP is unabashedly political, angry, and addictive. It rocks. --Lizz Mendez Berry
le tigre in general are quite an electro-clash band, but more like a punked electroclash band...(electro clash song by them: Shred A)
EP is amazing. Read more
I was really pleased by this release. I had a hard time getting into the first Le Tigre and the Julie Ruin album. They were too low-quality sounding. Read morePublished on June 28 2001 by lady detective
I was so excited to get this new EP that when I put it on I was very disappointed by the Le Tigre I had grown to love from their debut album. Read morePublished on March 1 2001 by "themightyamborg"

Another wonderful offering from Le Tigre! They continue to put out their unique "low-fi" tunes with punk edges. The process of making this work was painstaking. Read morePublished on Feb. 19 2001 by Sandi Strehlau
the new le tigre is kind of a milquetoast type of affair. all the songs kind of have the same feel to it, a scrambled more laid back jumbled sound than the last album. Read morePublished on Feb. 19 2001 by bn
