The self-titled debut by Le Tigre, the latest project from
exBikini Kill singer Kathleen Hanna, will be released Oct.
26 by Mr. Lady Records. The band which also includes video maker
Sadie Benning and writer Johanna Fateman mixes clipped,
new-wave guitar bursts with samples and keyboards. Fans of Hanna's earlier
band and her alter-ego project Julie Ruin will recognize her
sing-song melodies and her politically charged lyrics with Le Tigre.
Hanna first made a name for herself as the outspoken frontwoman in Bikini
Kill, one of the leaders in the early-'90s riot-grrrl punk movement. The
album's complete track listing: "Deceptacon," "Hot Topic," "What's Yr
Take On Casavetes," "The The Empty," "Phanta," "Eau D'Bedroom Dancing,"
"Let's Run," "My My Metrocard," "Friendship Station," "Slideshow at
Free University," "Dude Yr So Crazy" and "Les and Ray."
