They are connected to Prince sure. I don't know them that well but i get the impression from what people say that that one is a bit of an oddity, it's certainly tucked away (as they say) on a b-side. Having said that, whenever I've seen clips of them playing live or whatever on YT that song doesn't seem that different.... look basically I don't know.never heard this before, does their other stuff sound like this? I always thought of them as more mainstream, prince protégées.
It was a little sort of fanzine thing that you used to pick up in the bars and stuff round there. It was really really funny (please no-one show me it now and ruin my memories). I remember going to NY around that time and seeing VIice it was like a big sign saying that this is the difference between glossy, shiny US underground culture (I mean it was Canadian but I dindn't know that) and the crappy, faded, falling apart UK version. But both had their place at that point anyway. Shoreditch Twat was really about that sort of Hoxton Triangle, idiots in fins and mullets and pouting beautiful models pretending they liked Iron Maiden or whatever. You walked around and looked at all stuff and laughed and then you picked up the thing and it took the piss out of them again for you. But you felt like you were inside it enough to get the jokes or whatever.No, I haven't. I heard it said by a friend in London.
I love this kind of stuff, there must be tons of it out there.. tell me something good like this i don't know. Please.
Surprisingly not. Most of the album's pretty shit - though "Drive Me Wild" is total electroclash before its time.
I still think Felix is brilliant. Liked some of Kittin's CD with the Hacker but her schtick got boring real quick. I even liked Hand To Phone by Adult, but only one of the mixes. I remember seeing a copy of Shoreditch Twat in the Bricklayers', but the person I was drinking with - who had zero interest in zines, or even music full stop - giggled and put it in their bag, so I can't confirm how it's held up, 20+ years on. Who remembers Gobsausage?
I kind of lost interest in it as soon as I heard the Bunker/Viewlexx stuff. Still, was better than all that 'guerilla indie' shit going on in the area at the time.
