LA punksters The Mae Shi are climbing up the indie A-list ladder on the back of 2008’s well received HLLLYH. The album essentially saw them break through to dance punk lovers of The Rapture and Atari video games. ‘R U Professional’ is a “song By The Mae Shi celebrating the life and work of Xtian Bale.” The track is a tongue-in-cheek tribute to Christian Bale. The band says
Bale’s performance as John Connor in the upcoming Terminator 4 “Redemption” Film will no doubt be one of the greatest of all time. He will win every Oscar for his performance, even the special effects and animation ones.
It’s pretty standard Mae Shi material with references to almost all Christian Bale movies thrown in (“He is the dark knight/He is professional”, “Empire of the sun/He was like number one”). Well worth the bandwidth.
