Fischerspooner : Emerge

'The most delirious, unbearable and overbearing thing to hit the pop guest list this century' cliam our Single Of The Week...

The fact that Casey Spooner resembles an under-rehearsed David Lee Roth cast as the lead in 'Starlight Express' becomes irrelevant (well, sort of) the minute ‘Emerge’ throbs into life. KLF aside, have the fundamental requirements of chart success ever been so perfectly articulated?



Like all great scamsters, Fischerspooner steal from the black bin-liner of pop culture with both hands. Donna Summer’s disco pulses, A Flock Of Seagulls’ dress sense, Marilyn’s bitchy self-regard, they’re all in there somewhere. Steve Strange is no doubt consulting his lawyers as we speak. Whad-evah. ‘Emerge’ confirms Fischerspooner as the most delirious, unbearable and overbearing thing to hit the pop guest list this century. Rock’s frowning uncles, for once, are clearly on the run.
