You might not know about BIS, but you should. High-energy, political, dance music from the Scottish trio of Manda Rin, Sci-Fi Steven, and John Disco. They started in 1994, self-released a few things before being picked up by the Beastie Boy’s label, Grand Royal and then, of course, broke up.
One of their best known releases was The New Transistor Heroes, and this concert came from a three night return to the stage 10 years after its release (and a few years after the band broke up). They run through the whole disc at this show, and have a few backstage moments.
Listen and you may begin to enjoy songs such as This Is Fake DIY, Plastik People, and Kill Yr Boyfriend. You might need to pogo (i.e.., dance by jumping up and down.)
One of their accomplishments was to create a Teen-C movement. What is Teen-C? It is hard to say. Perhaps a definition might be rebel youth, or anti-establishment, or hip, or cool.
I saw them in Boston in the 90’s. They were practically youngsters, sarcastically complimenting the club on the “strong American beer” they were given. I did ask Manda if someone in their 30s or 40s could be “teen c” and she said yes, it was the spirit that counted. She suggested we write to their fan club manager, her sister, to get some free badges (buttons).
