Woman are based in Berlin, Japan, York and Lincolnshire. Their first album ‘Das Hexer’ was released in 2005 on Sea Records to much fanfare from assorted press and radio people.
Their peculiarly odd brand of no wave, disco, acid squelches and made-up Japanese vocals made Artrocker magazine go crazy over them and include them on their cover CD while proudly comparing them to Delta Five, Fire Engines, Deerhoof and Erase Errata. In Plan B, Everett True called them a “No Wave multi-cultural project - Contortions or Numbers Grown up in Yorkshire”. Steve Lamacq, Huw Stephens and Rob Da Bank all played them on Radio 1. Alternatively minded magazines, blogs and clubs chattered merrily about them. DJs like Erol Alkan and Rory at Trash started playing their very short songs to very full dancefloors.
All that for an album that lasts for twelve minutes and seven seconds.
This time round, it lasts eleven minutes and thirty eight seconds. It comes on like the first Muppets Show cast album played by Can and Chic. It has been played by Jon Kennedy on XFM and Huw Stephens raved about it when he was profiling Sea Records as his label of the week on Radio 1.
