‘Sisters Are Forever’ – Sexy Kids
From 7” (Slumberland)
I was never a huge fan of The Royal We. Didn’t quite get what all the fuss was about (The Vivian Girls are in the same boat at the moment). Thought they sounded just a little anaemic and overly considered and didn’t mourn their passing, it has to be said. As a result, the prospect of a return of sorts in the guise of Sexy Kids didn’t particularly fill me with thrills. But then I heard ‘Sisters Are Forever’ and realised that perhaps the phoenix (and god) like Slumberland label had worked its magic once again. Two minutes and fifty seconds of pulsing, gyrating, skinny-hipped delirium. And then some.
