Go Chic is intimidating. The three girl/one guy band from Taiwan write confrontational electro punk tracks with Peaches-style cajones.
Their lyrics diss, among many things, Americans who come to Taiwan and act all high and mighty. “You’re only here because you’re not cool in the United States,” they say. They’re gonna “teach you some manners.” “Watch your back, I’m gonna pull your hair,” they threaten.
In other words, the latest racist Internet sensation Peter Coffin ought to stay away from Taipei for awhile.
The ladies came by SXSW for an electric performance of their tracks off I Am Confused!
