[deleted] "The first album of Rhythm King And Her Friends.. Linda Wölfel, Pauline Boudry und Sara John founded the band in 2000. They developed their own special music style and complex texts, which shows that they pay a lot of attention on the traps and contradictions of society. Queer electronica, marvelous pop melodies with corners and edges, combine sampled rhythms and a playful use of different instruments and singing (in several languages, English, French and Bulgarian). Rhythm King and her Friends have something else in their mind. Instruments such as samplers, drumcomputers, guitar, bass and xylophone are used, in order to make music, embodied in the field of queer and gender politics. 'I know I need some vacation from my boyish closet'. Meanings are transported by the means of quotations, an appropriate performance and a free, but stylish handling of popsong-structures. The attitude and general atmosphere of Rhythm King and her Friends reminds one of casual but non-conformist bands like Liliput, The Slits, Au Pair, Peaches and Stereo Total. With Le Tigre, they share the creativity that is fused within queer and gender discourse. With Luscious Jackson they share the easiness of working with different styles."
