This new film about Oasis’s glory years is rousing, heart-rending and really f**king funny
Glasgow Cottiers Theatre
The music is almost negligible, a mere excuse to get up onstage, consisting for the most part of cheesy vaudevillian vamping and electro pop...
Tonight he plays as part of the 'Electrophobia' (ugh) night put on by BBC Live and on a bill alongside sci-fi futurists Add N To (X) and Stereolab he stands out like a Spam sandwich. Momus appears complete with ill-fitting second-hand trousers and eye-patch looking every inch the bright dork alongside his musical companion Toog, a synth-wielding Gary Numan wannabe.
He showcases tracks from his forthcoming album, 'Stars Forever' - seemingly a celebration of mediocre people who became famous despite having no discernible talent. Fittingly, then, the first portrait is of Momus himself, entitled 'Born To Be Adored', where cheesy French cabaret meets a particularly sloppy Beck backing track while Momus boasts of stealing people's wives.
All of which preening and poncing amounts to nothing more than a vacuous exercise in narcissism, as he himself confesses in 'I Couldn't Bear Being Less Famous'. The music is almost negligible, a mere excuse to get up onstage, consisting for the most part of cheesy vaudevillian vamping and electro pop. A feature on Eurotrash surely beckons.
