The Prima Donnas
Drugs, Sex, and Discotheques
Punk wave, new wave, no wave: this CD is overflowing with waves. Otto, Nikki, and Julius make up this band, taking the sounds of dance craze gone by, by way of Devo, and throwing in some slightly French touched punk and synthesized noise. Punk rockers in dayglo boots and those wrap around sunglasses. These British boys broke up in the summer of 1998, leaving us with this solid retrospective of those final days. Muddy and deep keyboard sighs against droning choruses and excited tin can beats. Makes me feel young again.
