I suppose itís some sort of achievement for a thirty-year-old band to only be fifteen years behind the times. But really, the Pet Shop Boys, St Etienne and Dubstar had perfected this sort of synthetic leftfield pop thing by the mid-90s, and havenít you heard even Simon Cowell isnít allowed to use Auto-Tune now? Further proof, then, that Phil Oakey is the Samson of electro. Nifty video though, which is funniest if you imagine youíre watching Embarrassing Bodies: Extreme & Uncut.
