MEN, the Brooklyn-based band and art/performance collective consisting of core members JD Samson (Le Tigre) Michael O'Neill (Ladybug Transistor) and Ginger Brooks Takahashi (LTTR) will take a break from recording their debut album this winter, to play eagerly anticipated shows in London and Brighton in January 2010.
MEN have recently completed U.S. tours with both Peaches and Gossip, and following on from packed club shows in London last May, return to these shores with more new songs and a live show that is hitting its stride. Their debut EP ‘Men' is also available to buy online now.
MEN focus on the energy of live performance and radical potential of dance music. Their music speaks of issues such as wartime economies, sexual compromise, and the demand for liberties through lyrical content and an inventive, high energy stage show.
The group began in 2007 as the DJ/production/remix team of LE TIGRE members JD Samson and Johanna Fateman. When the duo began to write new songs, it made sense to merge their efforts with JD's other new project HIRSUTE. JD and Hirsute members Michael and Ginger now comprise the core of MEN, with Johanna and artist Emily Roysdon contributing as writers, consultants, and producers.
MEN: JD Samson, Michael and Ginger.
