This is the debut album from Chicks On Speed. The trio of Sydney-born Alex Murray-Leslie, New Yorker Melissa Logan, and Kiki Morse from Munich met behind the Munich Art Academy in 1997 and started an art project that gradually merged into the medium of music. For their debut album, they founded a new label, Chicks On Speed Records. Their music is a unique mixture of punk/new wave attitude and electro-wisdom, along with a killer instinct for pop. Chicks On Speed Will Save Us All collects the best tracks of their totally sold-out 7"s." from this trio of pan-lingual/locational mistresses, who have created a stir in all manner of global art/culture hubs due to their infinitely appealing attire (single-use paper/leather dresses of primitive means taped directly to the body) and new/no-wave approach to synth-pop. An immense listing of accomplices adorns the CD: Tina Frank, Ramon Bauer, Florian Hecker (all of Mego/Skot fame), Patrick Pulsinger, Gerhard Potuznik (of Mego/Cheap fame), Ed DMX (of DMX Krew fame), etc. Features a few ridiculous covers ("Warm Leatherette" by The Normal, "Give Me Back My Man" by The B-52s, "Mind Your Own Business" by Delta 5, "Kaltes Klares Wasser" by Malaria!) and a couple of jabs at the art-world, concepts of modeling and being female in a generally cold, non-receptive society. Incredibly cheeky and so good.
