Paris Is Burning

Ladyhawke Pic: Ed Miles
Is it? Jesus! Quick, loot the Louvre! Oh, sorry, Paris isn’t ‘burning’ in a Bastille-storming, Coldplay way, but rather its dancefloors have ignited to this marvellously funksome throwback, a song so ’80s that Pepsi & Shirlie probably glued the sleeve together. That sound, friends, is a teenage Emilio Estevez undergoing a character-building epiphany during detention.
