Zoot Woman : Living In A Magazine
Ace '80s MOR-funk genius from Zoot Woman, the title track of their equally ace album...
But - oh no! - it's all so dreadfully 'ironic' and cringingly 'postmodern' isn't it? Yeah, whatever. Attacking a pop band for being, like, 'aware' and keen to play with image and nostalgia is a bit like moaning about bears being a bit vicious. It's what pop bands do, and if they don't then they should pick up an acoustic guitar and start wibbling about rain or something. This is not a song that's going to last, but that's the point. Get with the programme.
