Chicks On Speed : Glamour girl/Mind Your Own Business

Let's face it, an all-girl trio calling themselves [a]Chicks On Speed[/a] can only mean either peerless disco-punk brilliance or tragic music-biz wankerama.

Let's face it, an all-girl trio calling themselves Chicks On Speed can only mean either peerless disco-punk brilliance or tragic music-biz wankerama. No middle ground.





Thankfully, the Munich-based Chicks are in control and you better believe they rock. Not for them the conventions of staggered release dates- two vinyl singles at once? Why not! What's more, the first is a sumptuous shimmer-house glitterball featuring Austrian disco

android Christopher Just while the latter is a howlingly mental Delta 5 punk-ska cover version.





In other words, different

Chicks records for indie afternoons and disco nites. Genius.
