"'What the foreigners suggest will set your language out of sync'. You'd think that after the success of the sex-citing cover CD Head-Rush, (an album of full of electric-socket boogie-nights versions, which could be mistakingly described as electroclash, featuring classics of the horizontal pop music industry like Marvin Gaye, Soft Cell, Kiss, Duran Duran, Rod Stewart and Joan Jett), the glitter-spangled threesome of Koneko (vocals), Jo Ashito (vocals, guitar) and Jason Arigato (bass) would carry on playing the high-voltage karaoke-sex-machine for a generation who grew up between Saturday Night Fever & Flashdance, Repo Man & Alien, Blade Runner & Tron and Miami Vice Dallas... But Queen of Japan are not just your run-of-the-mill cheeky anarchistic electro-karaoke dandies, oh no! For underneath their golden crowns they keep firm hold of the motto 'a mind is a terrible thing to waste', thus last year releasing the DIY bastard-pop-manifesto Kings, Queens, Wasps and Lust in the best situationist anarcho-cyber-punk tradition of fuck copyright -- go copyleft/copywrong-bootleg. Foreign Politics transfers the lyrics from Kings, Queens, Wasps & Lust to the first originally composed Queen of Japan album. A 'tour de force' in discology."
