LE TIGRE! They’re my new favourite band after seeing them play last week. All bands should be like Le Tigre. I want an end to bands with no stage presence. The difference it makes to everyone when the band is having fun onstage [or, even better, all over the venue]. Think Les Savy Fav, Trail of Dead, OXES, heck, even Kylie. And especially Le Tigre. They had matching uniforms, digital films for each song, dance routines and big grins on their faces. They played all the hits, they got everyone dancing, they swapped instruments and whispered in eachother’s ears. They were smart and cute and goofy. I loved them all. All bands should be like Le Tigre.

Marceline is the fierce, terrifying force behind diskant.net, laughing with disdain as she fires sharpened blades of sarcasm in all directions. Based in Scotland, her lexicon consists of words such as 'jings', 'aboot' and 'aye': our trained voice analysts are yet to decipher some of the relentless stream of genius uttered on a twenty-four hour basis. Marceline's hobbies include working too much and going out in bad weather.
