What better way to clear out the weekend cobwebs – than a sugary slice of cut and paste pop that mashes eighties electrickery with a seventies super-grouper – in combo that’s camper than Christmas.

I always suspected there was some sonic crossover between Pete Shelley’s ‘Homosapien’ and Abba’s ‘Does Your Mother Know’ before it was ‘outed’ like this ..

Forget low calorie, size zero personality, wibbly wobbly warblers, shreaking squealers and puffed up preeners that put all the goods on the barrow with nothing left in the loft. Cold hearted Harpies, hard faced halfwits and know-nothings exploding in giddy ninny tizzes over some silly business.

No. No. No. Peggy Lee and Mae West are where its at dad, those slinky superstar supervixens as full, fruity and saucy as knickerbocker glories and peach melbas that swish from the hip, shoot for the heart and get pulses pumping like Thumper with the raise of an eyebrow, the flick of a fringe or the drop of hankie and have giants and gentlemen reaching for their lighters while blowing smoke rings round all wannabe waifs and WAGS.

Peggy Lee – Sitting On The Dock Of The Bay

Mae West – Great Balls Of Fire

Some hi tech clever clogs has made a vid’ for the Mae West track – well worth a peep

And, speaking of wonder women have you checked out the mighty Rock Mothers podcasts ‘Romo For Real’? Armed with a box of tunes and a bottle plonk, it’s fourty minutes of wall to wall wonder tunes and chirpy chat – get on over and fill your Biba boots here.

PS – One track from this posting will be appearing in a new mix going live this Friday
