The Nasty Boys...

Sequinned gold pants, a big fat disco ball, copious amounts of champagne and five grown men dowsed in glitter? That will be Trabant then - Icelands latest craziest rock export who sound like a dirty one night stand The Ark had with those Sisters of Scissor... and who are currently wooing the population in their homeland with electro sleaze anthemic pop ditty LOVING ME and a stage show that reminds me of San Fran Pride circa 1976... They flirt outrageously with the theatrical end of gay culture from cowboy chic to leather fetish and tunes swing between filthy electro trawls like NASTY BOY to outrageous power ballad Emotional Meltdown. That will do nicely til the new Scissters album then...

The Show Queen...

Laura Michelle Kelly had the daunting task of trying to make audiences forget about Julie Andrews when she became uber nanny Mary Poppins in the new stage show - and having seen the premiere in Bristol a coupla years back, I'd say she did a mighty fine job... Laura pulls another magic trick out of her carpet bag this week as her debut album The Storm Inside is not a collection of showtunes but a contemporary set produced by Maurice DeVrais who has worked with Madonna and Rufus Wainwright to name a couple. Highlights include a twisted take on Sondheims Losing My Mind, a cover of Nick Drakes Riverman and her sublime debut single presented below. Its supercalifragilisticexpialidocious...

    She has done some songs with Neil Hannon of Divine Comedy that I am eager to hear. (HIS new song is called "Diva Lady"!)

    She's quite a busty Mary Poppins isn't she? Maybe she was a wet nurse Mary Poppins...

    (I swear to god my word verif. for this is very close to the word nipple)

    word verification is a spooky mindreader and shouldn't be trusted with our intimate thoughts ;) Her boobs seemed very strapped down in the stage show so no doubt they are boinging to get free as part of her solo career...
