Are Le Tigre the world’s queerest band? You betcha. With feminist and lesbian cred going back years, the women of Le Tigre are about as unashamedly queer as it gets.
The band comprises two former members of riot-grrrl pioneers Bikini Kill and a butch dyke who likes camping (that’s camping in the outdoors, not musical theatre) and has released a calendar of photos of butch dykes. Want more?
How about the fact their latest album includes an electro punk cover of the Pointer Sisters’ I’m So Excited? This Island is exciting and fun and the band’s website (www.letigreworld.com) is a must-visit for those who like their queer punk served up with a healthy dose of intelligence.
