Freaks Electro, Techno Militant Cheerleaders On The Move The Swedish act Militant Cheerleaders on the Move are quite unknown for me as far as I've heard the name of the band which has been mentioned a couple of times. You could guess if I were surprised when I placed this bands debut single "Freaks" into my CD-Drive and Winamp pop-up on my screen. I got hit by a powerfully screamed out "We are the freaks on the floor!" and I almost fell off my chair by the brutal beats which mostly reminded me of Fixmer/McCarthy. Even though the band is promoted by being compared with DAF and Nitzer Ebb I still think that Mr McCarthy's latest project are the most fitting. On the other hand I feel more of the influences from Nitzer Ebb in the second track "Work Is Violence" and DAF are more responsible of the sounds in the forth track "Athletic". A remix by Sanctum of the title track "Freaks" are also included. I want to stand up, scream and wave my hands, all because I brutally look forward to this bands debut album. Even thought it's practically impossible, I still wish that the debut album waits for me in my mail when I come home. This review was written 2005 and initially published on Neurozine.com 450
