Appearing on Channel 4’s Pop World last week, my esteemed boss commented to me that Electric Six looked like a ‘bunch of balding old Germans’, rather than the wild eyed, fighting crazies of 18 months ago. Unfair? Have you heard ‘Radio Ga Ga’? This, their comeback single proper after the oh-so chortlesome download single that was ‘Vibrator’ is a turgid lump of moribund filth. Its an impressive desecration of something that was so majestically camp, it couldn’t fail to unite the world in gleeful lederhosen-wearing sexual abandon.
Now, it’s uniting the world again. This time however, the general consensus is ‘piss off Electric Six, your novelty shit is about as funny as cancer and we have no need for your rancid, hackneyed musical cynicism’.
