Scissor Sisters : Laura
More glam-disco absurdity...
The first three seconds of this single sound worryingly like Moby 'Honey',
but once that horrifying similarity
dissipates, the high-class camp
kicks in and before we know it 'Laura' has sent
us bouncing all the way to the dancefloor. Every day can
be a Friday night and every grimy, beer-stained student
disco a potential Studio 54 for the Scissor Sisters. With every single they release, it becomes harder not to see
things from this louche collective's point of view - especially now that they've made it clear that irony isn't something
that they care to peddle. As the Sisters themselves would doubtless say: fuck everything, let's jive. And, later, we really will fuck everything.
