"PLUGS PLUS" By DAT POLITICS JUST ARRIVED, THEIR FIRST RELEASE
ON COS RECORDS. (cd only)

Plugs Plus is the fourth album of the computer trio DAT POLITICS.
Based in the historic industrial city of Lille. other protagonists of
the international electronica jet-set scene also hop in for a visit,
on this masterpiece of a snap crackle and pop album! including the
great BLECTUM FROM BLECHDOM (two lovely ladies from California:
Kristin Erickson and Bevin Kelley, who also released on Kid 606's
label Tigerbeat6), MATMOS (Bjrk-programmer on her Vespertine
release), KID 606, FELIX KUBIN and LESSER. DAT POLITICS flash by the
way of music and leave you in a pixelated pop snapshot, of failed
flirt and gastronomy.
up and coming dat politics gigs follow, but do keep in mind, there
will be more... as the tour is being planned at this very moment by
isabelle at mdbs. So keep an eye out on their web site:
http://www.ski-pp.com and the cos.com site for actual dates.

    LE TIGRE NEWS:
    
    the le tigre rmxs are being pressed! the music is to die for, and
    the cover is beautiful. upstart summed the release up well; it
    reminds him of the energy and spirit that was around during the days
    of punk bands such as, the slits, kleenex and delta 5. well, combine
    that x 5 with the energy of the 3 le tigres and you come out with the
    progression of a great tradition in music!
    
    and... did you see le tigre on the cover of the wire?
    and read the article?... (dont miss out on our little advert
    either! the first one! there will be a series of adverts to cut out
