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
