Editorial Reviews

Album Description

1998 coleection of rarities and B-sides from Scottish indie /rock trio. Standard jewel case.

Amazon.com

Bis would make a great Saturday-morning cartoon. The young protagonists Manda, Sci-Fi, and Disco would roam the galaxy, fending off boring, stupid, old-people music and cruising for fresh beats from friendly alien types. The singles collection Intendo is a great way to become acquainted with these Scottish superheroes. If you're not an obsessive singles collector, you probably missed the chance to buy the Japan-only or limited editions that these songs are culled from. "Hi-fi, lo-fi, sci-fi, my-fi" is their mantra, and you'll find it all, from the computer-geeky "Clockwork Punk" to the angry grrrl power in "I'll Get You Back." Dance-punk sounds like a weird combination, but Bis reminds us that disco is the first part of discordant. --Lois Maffeo

Bis's Intendo was a compelation album of earlier recorded lp's so if you started tuning into the group about the time of "New Transistor Heroes" and "Social Dancing" you'll find the sound more punky and a bit darker than you would think. It is still a good buy and only has one track I'd avoid. Cookie Cutter Kid was a bit disappointing. Bis has set a great standard with every song they put out, even the Power Puff Girls theme song, and they deserve so much respect. Let's go, Bis go!!! Bis Nation Forever

For those of you who have never heard Bis before, I recommend getting "New Transistor Heroes". But, for those of us who have battled the Virgin Megastore Import bin to dig up singles, you have to have this CD instantly. NOW, BUY IT NOW! One of the reasons I liked this CD, is that most of the tracks are B-sides. I immediately noticed that they have put different versions of their songs on this CD. Only seasoned Bis fans would probably even pick up on it. A good addition to my Bis collection

so I bought this CD, too. It's pretty good...the songs are original, it's fabulously fun, but it's too short! 10 songs at 29 minutes long is a little dissapointing after their 70 minute long "Heroes"...still a good musical addition to any collection.

Indie-pop, disco-punk, techno, etc. etc.. It doesn't matter what you lable these guys as. Just they should be labled exactly as they are. Awesome. This is by far one of the best Bis albums, in my opinion, of all time. Do not let anyone or anything stop you from buying this album. You will NOT be disappointed.
