Twenty years ago, this NYC duo pro­claimed them­selves pop game-chang­ers with their de­but “elec­tro­clash” al­bum, am­bi­tiously ti­tled #1. It was all a bit flac­cid and they faded quickly. They re­turn with R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe pulled in to pro­duce some­thing hark­ing back to what they call “post-gay lib­er­a­tion, pre-AIDS epi­demic”. Lead singer Casey Spooner has taken on the swag­ger of a ’70s porn star (that’s his tongue on the cover). What’s it like? Elec­trodisco with a queer st­ing in the tail and a throb­bing bulge in its pants. The first sin­gle Have Fun Tonight is a sleazy ode to the joy of gay clubs mi­nus hens’ par­ties. Their first al­bum in eight years finds Fischerspooner past­ing on more gay than you’ll find backstage at RuPaul’s Drag Race.
