Le Tigre Movie Released

.
(Girlie) Oscilloscope Laboratories have released the new film Who Took the Bomp? Le Tigre On Tour on DVD.

The film, which has been championed by the New York Times, RollingStone, BUST Magazine and more premiered at 2011's SXSW Film and Music Festival.

It follows Le Tigre on the This Island tour across four continents and ten countries. Supported by a community of devoted fans and led by outspoken Riot Grrrl pioneer Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill), Le Tigre confronts sexism and homophobia in the music industry while tearing up the stage via performance art poetics, no-holds-barred lyrics, punk rock ethos, and whip-smart wit in this edgy and entertaining documentary.

Directed by Kerthy Fix (Strange Powers: Stephin Merritt and the Magnetic Fields) WHO TOOK THE BOMP? LE TIGRE ON TOUR features never before seen live performances, archival interviews, and revealing backstage footage with these trail-blazing artists.

Le Tigre took over the world with their "electronic feminist punk." What began as a fun project became one of the most relevant bands of the last decade. Ignoring the constrictions of both the mainstream and the underground, the band has never believed that fun and intelligence couldn't coexist. They have demystified electronic music, critiqued government policies, and celebrated female and queer artists all while dropping roller-skate jams that make everyone dance. The film is a look into their world and a document of their thrilling multimedia performances.
