In the soon to be immortal words of Robyn, ‘Konichiwa Bitches!‘  Well, we just had way too many Random Rants to choke up this week, so instead of one Random Rant post, you get two!  Lucky lucky you we hear you saying…

  1. Thanks to Team Robyn for putting us on the press list for her upcoming show at Cargo.  We are excited to do a live review on Robyn as her single for ‘Konichiwa Bitches’ drops on Monday in the UK and her new album is out on 2 April.  If you haven’t discovered the wonderful electro and pop magic of Robyn yet, what the hell are you waiting for?
  2. Zoe from Australia has a fab write up on her MySpace page of Darren Hayes showcase in OZ.  Check it out and leave her a rockin comment.
  3. Awww – our inbox was full of delight on Monday as Nu Shooz sent us a nice email regarding our Electroqueer Retro Rewind Post.  We love it when we get nice emails from cool EQ featured artists 🙂
  4. Madison will be performing an ‘exclusive new song’ at Popshow on Tuesday.  We can’t wait!  We are hoping to get to meet some more of The Electric Dolls and we are looking forward to performances by Discotheque, Rhea and Kemal.  Look for us there with our pack of bitches – party at The Candy Bar afterwards.
  5. And speaking of The Electric Dolls, they have a new tune ‘Supercute’ up at their MySpace page – it’s so freakin hot – we are desperate need of some Electric Dolls tracks on our iPods and we are hoping an EP or album is in the works!
  6. We love this YouTube clip of a Dangerous Muse fan Bevis meeting Mike and Tom.  It makes us feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
  7. In addition to the ‘covers’ album that is being released by Cleopatra records, Tiffany has also confirmed her new album title called ‘Just Me’ which will be new original material – we can’t wait.  Step aside as EQ does ‘The Tiff’ now.
  8. Switch 22 are going playing some shows in NYC and our fave New York correspondents Blog De Louis and Pedro Loves You are planning on going to the show to bring you a Switch 22 virgin perspective.
  9. Jeffree Star has arrived.  We were a bit hesitant to get to know him, but we downloaded his new electro album (which is doing surprisingly well in America now) and it’s uber fabu.  Hear him sing about how he seduces straight boys and keeps them hidden underneath his bed.  Jeffree has been confirmed as opening for Cyndi Lauper on a few dates…how fabulous is that?!  Check out his Internet fame over at his MySpace page now.
  10. And finally, Kim Wilde is back bitches!  Check out her new video to ‘Perfect Girl’ which is very cotton candy-like and fierce.  Get updated with her new powerpop sound over at her official MySpace page.

And for some reason, this song reminded us of Pat Benetar’s retro video for ‘Invincible’ which was from the movie ‘The Legend of Billie Jean’.
