Lesbians on Ecstasy

From Montreal Canada, this band was part of the Le Tigre circle of gay/lesbian bands that circulated in the early 2000's. They made a couple of other discs that I've never been able to locate, this is their debut and worth a listen. It's kind of electropunk, ala Le Tigre, with a lot of references to various other performers...."Parachute Clubbing" is a take on Parachute Club's "Rise Up" for example, "Pleasure Principal" is a response to Rough Trade's "High School Confidential", there are also references to stuff by Melissa Etheridge and KD Lang.....most notable, however, is "Bitchsy", which was used on the TV series "Queer as Folk" during the 2005 season of that show.....the song makes reference to "All Women Are Bitches" by Fifth Column.

I don't recall where I got this one from, but it's not too bad, if you like Le Tigre and stuff like that. I have no idea what their subsequent albums sound like, my best guess is that perhaps a bit of the novelty wears off, but that is just a guess.....after all, Le Tigre released a handful of great and intelligent albums exploring the bands sexuality, perhaps this band could, as well.
