Product Description

Scissor Sisters are five electro-glam reprobates from New York who have produced one of the coolest records of 2004 without even trying. Influenced by vintage Bowie, Roxy Music & Elton John & with the audacity to cover Pink Floyd, the Scissor Sisters are one of the most unique & exciting bands around. Their self-titled debut album is chock-full of cheesy-yet-awesome tunes that incorporate disco, soft rock & everything in between. The Floyd cover 'Comfortably Numb' evokes 'Saturday Night Fever' era Bee Gees whilst 'Mary' is a wonderful pastiche of Toto. Elsewhere the disco stomper 'Laura' is guaranteed to fill dance floors from student unions to wedding receptions & 'Filthy/Gorgeous' is the greatest single Fat Boy Slim never released.

Those dismissing the self-titled Scissor Sisters as a product of New York's latest band fad are jumping to conclusions. Yes, there's a certain cabaret aspect to what they do, but that's not to dismiss them as frivolous nightclub entertainment. That's only half the story. "Comfortably Numb" may nod to gay disco but this eclectic bunch of fashionistas have more interesting reference points tucked up their puff sleeves. If anything, the prevailing mood here is sunny AM rock, the kind of thing you might have tuned into in 70s New Jersey. "Take Your Mamma Out," perhaps the first song about coming out to your mother in a gay club, and sung by Jake Shears like primetime Elton, is a cracker. So too "Tits on the Radio"--slick barroom boogie that takes a venomous swipe at New York's increasing conservatism. Best here, though, is the anthemic "It Can't Come Quickly Enough," a retro carve-up of Nick Kershaw and the Pet Shop Boys that's more powerful than it sounds. Ignore it at your peril. --Paul Tierney
