Collapsing New Waves: I like the sound of synthesisers, so I like the sound of this art-snob Electroclash synth revival even though the best synthdisco record I’ve heard this year is also the oldest (Sugababes/GirlsOnTop/AdinaHoward/Numan, expect review when work backlog clears). This article’s a bit in love with itself, though – Fad Gadget may feel more relevant now than they have done for a good while but the dots here don’t join up. And the piece is rife with do-you-see? lyrical analysis – “he and his sweetie snog “in the shade of a rubber tree” — possibly grown from a seed, possibly made of old tires (or, perhaps, bearing the rubbers that catch one’s seed).” Clever stuff, no?
