Since their debut as a full band in 1999 with Tight, MSI has gained a cult following. 2000's Frankenstein Girls Will See Strangely Sexy, with a whopping thirty songs covering everything from drugs and the rock scene to homosexuality and androgyny, was a bizarre enough release to gain them recognition, but it wasn't until You'll Rebel to Anything (2005) that the band became a household name amongst those of a more rebellious, foulmouthed persuasion.
Bear in mind, MSI creates a context so absolutely over-the-top offensive that everything means nothing, and if anyone's offended, they're missing the point.
Combining electronica, punk, rap, rock, pop and even Atari videogame music, and with vocals that range from a fluttering falsetto to grunge rage and speed-talking, MSI is a spastic, genre-bending, delightfully nonsensical band that's always good for some mindless self-indulging.
Tight has been discontinued and is ridiculously hard to find, so I feel little remorse in sharing half the CD.
