"Hardman's debut Shirts and Pistols takes stock of deep soul and white trash culture, folkrock and microprocessor-aesthetics on both sides of the Atlantic and makes it all their own. Kraftwerk live again, but with Howlin'Holf as their frontman -- or maybe it's the other way 'round? Sampling and resampling themselves Hardman deconstructs and reconstructs a relaxed cocktail of digital collages, songwriting and old school popmusic. This product contains no third party ingredients. Shirts and Pistols was produced by Hardman and Mark Bihler, who has lend his producing/remixing talents to bands like Appliance, Saint Etienne and Melllow and enjoys success in Great Britain with his project Bridge and Tunnel. Created, with extensive use of the internet, and over a two month production period in Berlin the album celebrates songs as well as collages and fragments. Hardman lives what in many cases is merely the result of artistic calculation and therefore they have a credibility, that is very rare to find these days."
